Font Face/Name/Family



*da example* Do you think it's cute to post with the font
"Super Ugly 2k1"? Guess what... nobody has it. we can't see that
font. we'll just see the default font anyways.

*idea* Don't override your font. If you MUST override your font, use a
typical readable font.

*howto* <font face="verdana">..foobar..</font> 
or  <div style="font-family: verdana">..foobar..</div>

*new example* ..foobar..



Font Size



*da example* Can you read this? I can't. I sure don't
want to read your entry if it's this tiny.

*idea* Use a NORMAL font size!! And no, This
isn't better.

*howto* simply don't use the font size tag.

*new example* (none)



Colorful Text



*da example*


i bet you love reading this line right here.


Why? Because it has a font color override. A white background and a white font
do not mix well. it's not cute to use colors. If I can't see your blue text
on my blue friends page background, I skip it. It must not have been very
important.

*idea* don't override your font color. If you do, force a background
color as well.

*howto* <div style="color: white; background: black">..foobar..</div>

*new example*

..foobar..
