Document Summary

Second only to having good content, good text formatting is key to good website design. Use of text on web pages is similar to use on paper - many of the same rules apply. Major difference - paper is not dynamic; web pages can be resized. Unlike paper the web is a fluid medium - text must be able to flow and change with the browser that displays it. Designers can force a "look" by using images to display text: this is a very bad idea for large chunks of text. Leave the font up to the user unless choosing a font for emphasis: then use a concise, easily readable font with fallback options. Don"t shout - use all uppercase sparingly. User horizontal rules to separate sections of a page. Be consistent in use of headers and headings: clearly distinguish between different levels of headings. Follow paper conventions for things such as references and bibliographies.
