Part technical and part theoretical, this practical guide to web typography helps designers understand how the typographic choices they make in layout and prototyping programs behave once they are turned into live code. Through a series of demos, this book teaches designers how to create typographic specific webpages by learning just enough HTML and CSS to be able to view the pages in different browsers, devices, and operating systems. With live webpages to evaluate, designers will learn how to test those pages for supported features and performance, ensuring font choices look as good in the browser as it does in their layout program, delivering a speedy experience to the users.

Key Features Demonstrates the minimal amount of HTML and CSS necessary to be able to create webpages to see typographic choices in the browser.

Discusses responsive design and how to evaluate and test those choices for performance and usability prior to front-end development.

Demonstrates how to review your own typographic, image, and layout choices in the browser through a series of demos in the book.
