TypeTester – Making online type suck a little less

The words ‘HTML’ and ‘typography’ just don’t go together since your ability to style the type doesn’t go beyond bold or italic and even that can be challenging since the typefaces will appear differently between browsers. TypeTester is a great design tool to let you see exactly what your text will look like in a browser. You can choose from a variety of fonts, including web safe fonts and then adjust settings like size, decoration, alignment, color, etc. which will let you easily figure out exactly how your text, headings and subheadings will look like. The two things I like the best are that it lets you compare different options side by side and it gives you the ability to generate the CSS code for whatever settings and font you pick.
