This page shows the various Typography styles that are applied to things like text and images.

 

Headings

Headings are an important way to add structure to you document. Visually heading levels get smaller as the heading number increases. Heading 1 is the most prominent and Heading 6 is the most subordinate. There should only be one heading 1 on any given page. For accessibility, headings provide a navigable outline of the information in your page.

Normal, Paragraph, and Div

This is a normal paragraph. Everything after this sentence is in latin for filler. Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat. Ut wisi enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exerci tation ullamcorper suscipit lobortis nisl ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat.

Links

Indented Paragraph (e.g. BLOCKQUOTE)

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit, sed diam nonummy nibh euismod tincidunt ut laoreet dolore magna aliquam erat volutpat.

Images

Images are the attention getting part of a page. High quality images manipulated correctly can make a huge difference in the look and feel of your site. When using images, be accessible. Make the readable to the sight challenged and have text alternatives for the blind.

Left Aligned Image

Ut wisi enim ad minim veniam, quis nostrud exerci tation ullamcorper suscipit lobortis nisl ut aliquip ex ea commodo consequat. Duis autem vel eum iriure dolor in hendrerit in vulputate velit esse molestie consequat, vel illum dolore eu feugiat nulla facilisis at vero eros et accumsan et iusto odio dignissim qui blandit praesent luptatum zzril delenit augue duis dolore te feugait nulla facilisi. Nam liber tempor cum soluta nobis eleifend option congue nihil imperdiet doming id quod mazim placerat facer possim assum. Typi non habent claritatem insitam; est usus legentis in iis qui facit eorum claritatem. Investigationes demonstraverunt lectores legere me lius quod ii legunt saepius. Claritas est etiam processus dynamicus, qui sequitur mutationem consuetudium lectorum. Mirum est notare quam littera gothica, quam nunc putamus parum claram, anteposuerit litterarum formas humanitatis per seacula quarta decima et quinta decima. Eodem modo typi, qui nunc nobis videntur parum clari, fiant sollemnes in futurum.
