You don’t often see “CSS” and “typography” used in the same sentence—and for good reason. Traditional typography is a very subtle and beautiful form of design, with thousands of variations and choices. Unfortunately, with CSS that’s not quite the case. Don’t lose hope just yet, though. CSS can do more than you might think.
While you may not have the same selection and precise control on the Web as you do in the print world, you still have enough control to improve the display of your characters and paragraphs. Despite less control, improved readability and design are still worthy goals that are within your grasp using CSS.
