HTML and CSS Reference
In times past, choosing type styling for a web site meant picking from
one of a handful of typefaces; setting a size, color, and a few other prop-
erties; and relinquishing the control that designers are used to when
designing for other media. CSS provides more control over font styling
and typesetting than many people realize, and in the last few years there
have been huge advancements in tools, services, and embeddable fonts
based on changes in CSS3.
This chapter explores how to choose the font used and discusses the
other properties that give you control over the appearance and the read-
ability of the text on the pages you build.
