Typography

Written by Super User

This page represents typographical aspects of the "Sportal" template. Take care about your typography to make better user experience for your readers. How to achieve that?

  • Learn more about typography, escpecially about the most often used codes, such as <p>, <h1>, <h2>, <h3>, <img> and <a>.
  • This template has valid XHTML, but if you want to keep it like that, you must learn and follow the XHTML principles. Also, if some of your extensions are not XHTML valid, pages based on this component would not be XHTML valid as well (no matter if template itself is valid).
  • Familiarize yourself with CSS styles that comes with this template.
  • Never copy/paste directly from layout text editors, such as Microsoft Word or OpenOffice. Try to paste text in plain editors first (such as Notepad).
  • Use a WYSIWYG editor that comes with Joomla or install a better editor, but always check your code in the editor's HTML mode.
