Join James Williamson for an in-depth discussion in this video Additional resources, part of CSS: Advanced Typographic Techniques.
I hope you've enjoyed watching CSS Advanced Typographic Techniques.…And I hope I've inspired you to experiment…with how CSS can enhance your projects typography.…Before we go, I want to show you a couple resources that can help you dig…deeper into the concepts that we've explored…or help you as you author your CSS.…But first, be sure to check out Dave Rupperts lettering.js page.…You'll find links to more documentation but more importantly.…There's a whole gallery that can inspire you…as to what can be done with lettering.…Also, don't forger to spend some time…with Google's font collection and Adobe's edge fonts.…
Both are great free services, and there's a lot to explore here.…Now gradient syntax is tough to master and it's especially…tough if you need to support older versions of the syntax.…I recommend using the ultimate CSS Gradient Generator here at colorzilla.com.…It gives…you a visual editor.…And it also allows you to tweak the…code and get the exact results you're looking for.…I use this all the time.…
