Abstract

The role of web typography—as is the case with other uses of typography, such as in print—is to administer a set of techniques that aid in the readability of text. As you saw in the previous chapter, many of these involve the effects applied to the font itself, but other techniques involve the appearance of a whole block of text. This chapter will explore some of these techniques and provide solutions for common typographical concerns.
