When it comes to great Web sites, looks really ARE everything…

When you design a page for print, you control the size of the paper and the placement of the elements. But on the Web, the size, resolution, fonts, and even the layout of your page can vary with the browser and the system used to view your site. In this lavishly illustrated guide, Web designer Wendy Peck shares the secrets the professionals use to resolve those problems and create eye-catching Web typography that looks as good when viewed with Explorer 4 on a vintage PC as with Netscape 7 on a flat-screen iMac.

Includes a companion Web site featuring examples from the book and more.

  • Avoid the top ten typography errors
  • Learn the secrets of top Web designers, including typographical special effects, CSS, function versus form, and more
