Chapter 2. Text Styling and Other Basics

Chapter 2. Text Styling and Other Basics

This chapter will explore the application of CSS for styling text. It will cover a lot of CSS basics, as well as answer some of the more frequently asked questions about these techniques. If you’re new to CSS, these examples will introduce a variety of properties and their usages, and provide a solid foundation from which to start your own experiments. For those already familiar with CSS, this chapter will serve as a quick refresher for those moments when you’re struggling to remember how to achieve a certain effect.

The examples I’ve provided here are well supported across a variety of browsers and versions, though, as always, testing your code in different browsers is important. While there may be small inconsistencies or a lack of support for these techniques in older browsers, none of the solutions presented here should cause you any serious problems. For more information on browser support, Chapter 7 is dedicated to the subject.
