Elements of Typographic Style for Web

FontShop highlights a new site dedicated to the daunting task of trying to control type on the web. Based on Robert Bringhurt’s The Elements of Typographic Style (the "bible of typography"), the Elements of Typographic Style Applied to the Web site sets age-old typographical practices against the established difficulties of manipulating type within web design, to interesting results. Certainly worth a look if you work with type on the web, especially if you haven't been paying attention to the new ways of the web (you'll be surprised). Note to web designers: the author, Richard Rutter, scores major points for working with the standards and accessibility practices of the W3C.
