    • Refinements
    • Putting the X in XHTML Describe semantics, not presentation
    • CSS Your key to success
    • Most Important • Generic font choices, weights, size • Margins • Borders, rules • Spacing, padding • Alignment, “block” or “inline”
    • Nice to Have • Color • Page breaking • Float • Lists and tables

    • Fonts and how they are a pain
    • Embedding Benefits • Highest quality typography • Big differentiation from the current norm • Ensure all of your crazy glyphs appear
    • Embedding Downsides • Limited reader support • Licensing headaches • No assurance all of your crazy glyphs appear
    • Linking “ Link by link we build paths of understanding across the web of humanity —Tim Berners-Lee for goodness sake, do it!
    • Internal & External Vocab word Chapter Website Footnote • Every should be linked Figure Table Wizard
    • Image Size? • “Imagine your book through a straw” • How much disk space does your cell phone have again? And how slow is the Edge network? • Scalable images win for many (SVG)
    • SVG FTW
    • GOTCHAS!
    • • CSS wasn’t really created for this stuff • Invalidity hurts • XHTML is restrictive • Big tables are hard everywhere • Device, software support all over the map
