Book Description

The first web developers and designers took quite some time to adopt an artistic angle while designing web pages. That was until they started to pay special attention to fonts and typography. With the progression of web technologies, especially HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript libraries, typography is now an art and this can enhance your products and make them more valuable. Custom fonts further enhance the look of websites, making them truly attractive.

Instant HTML5 Fonts and Typography is a practical, hands-on, recipe-based guide that provides you with a number of clear, step-by-step exercises. These precise recipes will help you create your fonts, generate your cross-browser compatible font formats, help you to use and import fonts in different methods, and finally generate a beautiful image or Flash-like products.

Instant HTML5 Fonts and Typography details the use of fonts in HTML5, and breaks down the confusion surrounding which file format to use to ensure cross-browser compatibility. It will take you through a number of clear, practical recipes that will guide you through embedding fonts and will also take advantage of the new HTML5 and CSS techniques to generate splendid effects.

You will learn how to build your own fonts using a free web font generator as well as look at embedding web hosted fonts and rendering fonts for really old versions of Windows. This book will help you take advantage of using fonts in the best and most artistic way.
