The web is universal. Tim Brown shows us how to practice typography in an equally universal way. Focusing on traditional typographic principles while embracing progressive enhancement, he explores how fonts, CSS, web-enabled devices, and user contexts coexist.

A solid understanding of typography can help make working with fluid layout easier.
