Introducing, Fun With Fonts

by Joe Gillespie — Sep 1, 2002

The principle I used is that I would pull no punches, well not exactly, there is no point in using CSS features that are not supported in any browser. I took Mozilla 1.1 as my 'base' as it is the most advanced browser where CSS is concerned, and it is my main browser of choice anyway. If what I was doing didn't work in Mozilla 1.1, I backed off. I should point out, in case you don't know, but Mozilla 1.x and Netscape 7 are almost identical twins.

I produced a siteful of samples, all fairly jokey things, in fact it's called Fun With Fonts. Here you will find a variety of typical home pages for imaginary sites, some concrete poetry and a short story. I used some fairly standard CSS, some Flash with CSS and some CSS that borders on the impossible.

Now, I have to confess, I wouldn't normally do a Web site from the ground up in a text editor. Most of the time I use Adobe GoLive 6 or Dreamweaver MX - but more about that later in the review section. Digg Technorati Blinklist Furl reddit Design Float
