An often overlooked aspect of web design, by those just starting out, is typography. In fact, web designers that have been around for a couple years even have a tendency to overlook and undervalue the power of typography. Don’t be mistaken though, it’s one of the most powerful tools web designers have.

In this article, we’ll review ten web typography tips that will bring your typographic design skills to the next level.

1. Leading

Leading is the space between lines of text and probably one of the more commonly known elements of typography. Leading will greatly effect the readability of your text content. Leading will need to be changed based on the type face, size, weight and measure (covered next) used.

I generally stick with about 2-5pt’s larger leading than font size depending on the type face, size, etc. and how it feels reading it.
