Facing up to Fonts

A session at Skillswap Goes Typographic

Browser support for the typographical aspects of CSS is gradually increasing. Things are on the up.

Richard will be trouncing the myth of web-safe fonts, demonstrating how to go beyond bold, detailing the technicalities of font embedding and exploring the commercial and ethical minefield therein.

The introduction of font embedding in particular is a long-awaited step in the right direction. However it brings with it a host of complications; technical, ethical and aesthetic.

This session will explain all.
