Styling Text


I think it’d be a good idea to bring it back down to basics for a chapter to talk about using CSS to style text. Manipulating type is probably the area where CSS gets most of its use— even for sites that aren’t fully embracing web standards throughout. Stripping repeated <font> elements from site markup was (and is) attractive for designers, and it’s not hard to see a major advantage of controlling typography via CSS—further separating the presentation from the content.
