Back in 2009, Jason Santa Maria wrote a great article, “On Web Typography,” for A List Apart. I want to restyle this blog and fonts are one of the first things to think about.
“The system fonts we commonly use such as Georgia, Verdana, and Arial have become so ubiquitous that any associations we might have with them other than “web” are pretty much gone.”

Gleaned from Andi Smith blog post 25 Secrets of the Browser Developer Tools:
Access built-in browser toolbars by pressing F12 in Windows or Cmd-Opt-i on the Mac. The post includes a table listing browsers, development toolsets, type (integrated or add-on), and links to documentation.
Smashing Magazine turned me on to Handsontable, “a minimalistic approach to Excel-like table editor in HTML & jQuery.”
- Automatic adding of new rows and columns
- Undo and redo
- Copy & paste
- Column and row headers
- Scrollbars within containers
- Drag to fill cell values
- Right-click context menu
- Custom buttons
- Conditional formatting
- Prepopulating new rows from a template
Sounds very cool.
