The New Web Typography

The New Web Typography.

Microsoft is really hitting things strong early in 2012, wow. The hot topic this week is OpenType support in IE10. While other browsers fit that bill as well, Microsoft made this (very non-Microsoft looking) website to tout what’s so cool about OpenType support in browsers.

Of course a big pink ribbon plastered up top points you to IE10, but respectfully Firefox as well, as they both support OpenType.

The page is dedicated to outlining the sweetness of OpenType:

  • Small Caps
  • Ligatures
  • Numerals
  • Kerning
  • Fractions
  • Alternates

There is a lot to like. Except the syntax.
