Webinar: Web Fonts - Here at Last!

Session overview

Much like "web-safe colors" in the past, "web-safe fonts" have long been a thorn in the side of web developers. Historically, authors who wanted to use specific typefaces on their pages had to resort to images, prefixes, and other less-than-desirable workarounds -- but no more! With the advent of the CSS Fonts Module Level 3 specification, web fonts have become more accessible, less browser-dependent, and even (dare we say it?) easy!

In this session we'll explore the new CSS3 @font-face rule and how to apply it, discuss some practical font usage and conversion issues, and see how to simplify it all with a little help from our friends at Google

What will the webinar cover

  • How semantic structural tags differ from standard linear tags
  • Which HTML5 elements and CSS3 features best apply to regular content
  • How to apply styles to sets of tags for consistent results
  • How to adapt your HTML and CSS for responsive design.


This webinar will suit those whose experience level with CSS is at the novice level.
