Chapter 6. Typography, Muse, and the Web

In the previous chapter we looked at how rectangles are the building blocks of a Muse web page and how to use them both for content and as design elements. Yet another absolutely fundamental element of any web page is text. Websites are all about communication and naturally, text is a big part of that.

In this chapter we'll add text and learn how to edit it, apply styles, and use frames to control where it appears on your web page. We'll also discuss the role of typography in producing eye-catching and interesting designs, and why our choice of typeface for the Web is so important.
