A web designer once famously claimed that "the web is 95% typography." We don't have to debate the exact math of that statement; its main point is true. You can't design & build websites without handling text well.

Just look at browser default stylesheets. They don't provide layout, animation, or decoration: just basic typography.

In this talk, we'll get comfortable with web typography.
• learn the CSS properties that control typography
• understand how responsive design affects typography
• survey some tools that make it easier to manage typography
