This one shows some color and font usage in markup, and below, the format procedure used for the clock.
I took this screenshot minutes after adding support for Xft, color, and baseline alignment. To demo the new features, I rendered the clock in a big, gaudy font. This screenshot also shows the configuration that created this, loaded in emacs. Note the redundant specification of font for every widget: when this screenshot was taken, mowedline did not have a system for setting a default font, as it does now.
This shot shows mowedline 0.1 displaying my xmonad status and a clock. Mowedline 0.1 was still pure xlib with xlfd fonts. It did not yet support unicode, antialiasing, or color.
