Chapter 4. Working with Text


HTML text is the staple food of the World Wide Web—a fast-loading, flexible, and easily editable component that arguably has the potential to communicate more and better than anything else on the web.

With the rise of graphics and multimedia, text has begun to see some neglect, as designers spend more and more time and effort trying to dazzle viewers. Most web users are looking for information, however, and for that, well formatted and styled text is hard to beat. With the rise of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), the possibilities for styling text are constantly pushing the old limits, and the opportunities for artistry in typography are as exciting as in the world of graphics.

Knowing how to add text to an HTML document and how to format it properly is essential to the craft of web page design.
