Following up on yesterday’s post about fonts not rendering completely properly, here’s another fix/tweak for making fonts appear better on OS X:
Hat tip: Bret.
A co-worker sent out this article a few minutes ago, and had to post it here. While it’s not a cross-browser magic bullet, the -webkit-font-smoothing set to “antialiasing” does wonders for making font-face fonts look better (and the right weight) in Chrome and Safari. Now if there were a “-moz-webkit-font-smoothing” property, or browsers supported the W3 font-smooth property.
Not much to say on this one — nearly everything in moderation is a good rule of thumb — may it be in design, food, etc.
I’m absolutely loving this whole set of typography effects done via a combination of my two favorite web bits — CSS3 and jQuery.
Mentally bookmarked to use some of these on future projects.
This is a cool proof of concept, and pretty impressive demo, though I’m wracking my brain to figure out where I’d actually have the necessity to utilize something like this. Regardless, it’s a very impressive visual.
Welcome to today’s resource list on a theme! I feel like I don’t write enough of my own content that breaks it down into lists. Hmm
Anyway, I really like the first one on the list Css Txt, and the control and options it gives you for tweaking web-based text.
