    10 Terrific Tips for Web Design Beginners. - Typography can be...

    (Page 5 of 7 )


    Typography can be defined as the study of fonts. Learning about typography will teach you when and where to use fonts. Learning about letter spacing (kerning as they like to call it), line height, the serif and sans serif font categories, and more, youíll have a truly lethal understanding of fonts in your web design arsenal.

    It is important to keep in mind that there is only a small range of fonts that will display in peopleís web browsers, so donít rely on primarily using custom fonts in your designs, unless you plan on saving them all as images which can drastically increase the file size of your web site. Site visitors arenít going to download custom fonts just to view your website the way you want them to, even if you are super polite. If you stick to using the following fonts for the actual text in your web page, you will be safe: Arial, Arial Black, Comic Sans MS, Courier New, Georgia, Impact, Times New Roman, Trebuchet MS, and Verdana. If you want to be an extra lame nerd like me, you should print out all the variations of these fonts (in bold, italic, different sizes, etc) and stick it on your wall.


    Before I continue any further I must offer one small piece of advise. Please please please do not email me and tell me that I have spelled Ď colourí wrong. If you do so, I will slap you with a salami. Every time I write one of these articles I seem to get at least one email from a silly sausage that doesnít realise words such as Ď colorí and Ďoptimizeí are spelled differently in different parts of the world. Well, on with the show.
