Typography

With @font-face gaining more widespread support, and standards for web fonts such as WOFF being drawn up, the past restraints on web typography are slowly fading away. But as Peter Parker’s uncle warned, “with great power comes great responsibility.” With the increasing number of ways we can design type on a web page, the need to understand typography has become a much more significant part of a web designer’s job.

People use many fonts on the web, but no one should be using Comic Sans!

If you don’t already have a working knowledge of fonts and typography, now is the time to begin. Not only does it have important implications in design and how content is portrayed visually, but also it will ultimately give you added levels of control over page aesthetics.
