In addition most applications and text formats are designed… with little or no concern for the typography of screen reading.
The third point is an interesting one. What is a good typology of screen-reading?
Christy, did you mean “typography”? Both are interesting questions - I’m just trying to follow your train of thought.
Many of the truisms of good typographic design for screen vs. paper have to do with resolution and with the nature of backlit vs. not. It will be interesting to see what first ulta-high definition screens and second smartpaper do to this whole discussion - I expect typographers in 10-15 years will be groaning about people insisting on using san-serif fonts on high resolution smartpaper. After all, the serif was originally designed to aid readability….]]>
