CSS3 OpenType: The New Web Typography

  •     Date: May 17, 2012
  •     Details:

o    Web typography is changing dramatically thanks to browser support for @font-face and server-based fonts. Web designers now have thousands of font choices where they once had just a dozen. But beyond @font-face, CSS 3 introduces myriad new OpenType typographic controls, bringing a level of typographic precision to web design previously seen only in print.

Covered in this presentation:

  •     how @font-face server-based web fonts work, and what options they replace
  •     choices for enabling @font-face, from self-hosting to web font services
  •     both font-independent and OpenType features, and how to tell which web fonts support which OpenType features.
  •     see these features in action on web pages, from workhorse everyday typography to the surprising and bizarre, via fonts created by Phinney and friends
  •     other CSS 3 typographic features such as kerning and hyphenation
  •     state and near future of advanced typography support in browsers
  •     “correct” typographic use of all these new features
