Font Tester

fonttester.com is the website to be in, when you want to compare the difference between colouring and the font design. This is suitable for anyone who wants to design web pages, especially for blogers and web designers. fonttester.com allows modification to 3 different columns for comparison. If that’s too much, narrow the columns down to 2 or 1. Each column has it’s own size, font & background and alignment. There font adjustments also include font style, wieght, variant, decoration, indent, transform and even the direction of the text! The character map is also worth refering to. Great stuff by the author!

I played with some of the CSS properties and this is the result.

W3Schools Online Web Tutorials

One of the best sites on the net to get all the info on web tutorials. Much like tutorialdownloads.com. For any new and learning web developers, there are loads of resources explaining each script with examples. Speed learning! Great! There are even quizes to take to measure how well the information is absorbed. One could probably cover the basics of html, xml, javascript and sql in a day! Moreover, the tutorials are enjoyable. Great!

I remember when I was in university, I visited w3schools very often when I hit a dead end in a project. Usually, what I’ve learned in class wouldn’t be enough to complete the projects that have been handed out. I remembered clearly when I had to use external CSS for all my html files. I went in w3schools, took the tutorials, and ‘viola’, I could even create cascading style sheets.

If you’re looking to design your website and don’t know where to get templates, you should go to oswd.com. The templates posted on oswd.com are all free. There are tons of designs to choose from, you might find several to your liking. The website has a section where all the top 10 most downloaded, highest rated and best contributers can be found. Very interesting for website designers. The best thing about having a source for free web templates is that it saves time and gives users a huge range of selection.

My favourite so far is this one by Andreas Viklund. Simply cool!
