III. CSS for Presentation > 12. Formatting Text: (Plus More selectors)

Chapter 12. Formatting Text: (Plus More selectors)

Now that you’ve gotten your feet wet formatting text, are you ready to jump into the deep end? By the end of this chapter, you’ll pick up 15 new CSS properties used to manipulate the appearance of text. Along the way, you’ll also learn how to use more powerful selectors for targeting elements in a particular context and with a specific id or class name.

The nature of the Web makes specifying type tricky, if not downright frustrating, particularly if you have experience designing for print (or even formatting text in a word processing program). There is no way to know for sure whether the font you specify will be available or how large or small the type will appear when it hits your users’ browsers. We’ll address the best practices for dealing with these challenges as we go along.
