    Great post! Very useful stuff in here.

    However, links to the ‘CSS Gradient Test Effect’ part navigate to you WP login page. At least for me anyways.

    Very helpful article, thank you!

    I’m always playing around with the typography on my blogs and am never truly happy with the results.

    It does take a lot more than changing the fonts and sizes to make things look just right.

    Great post and an invaluable resource.

    PS- I just purchased Fountain’s “Atlantik” type family. I’ll trade you one of my licenses for another typeface/family of equal value.

    Let me know,
    Andrew
