The Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the Web: While still a work in progress, this site is gearing up to be the most in-depth examination of typography on the Web. It’s set up like a book — some chapter examples:
- Define the word space to suit the size and natural letterfit of the font
- Set ragged if ragged setting suits the text and page
- Letterspace all strings of capitals and small caps, and all long strings of digits
Here’s the book on which it’s based — The Elements of Typographic Style . This is apparently the bible of print typography.
Found via this article at SitePoint about picking a good Web font. It’s a good look at what makes fonts good or bad on the Web.
If you want to get a little more in-depth, here’s a full college course on typography, complete with syllabus, reading list, assignmnets, exams, etc. They promise 12 hours a week of work for 10 weeks. That’s a whole lot of fonts.
(And I found that via OpenCourseware Finder, which is very cool, but another post entirely…)
