Typography Pages:

Type is always a part of the web page, The webpage type need be clearly legible. The typographhic approach need be based on the readability. Unlike any other medium, the typography in the web space meets a great limitation, and unlike Flash, the dreamweaver can't embed the font you used. So please stay away many uncommon fonts or missing font problem may happen. Designing for a computer screen has its own set of problems. Add to these the elastic nature of a web page, which has to work across different computer platforms and screen sizes, and the problems get even worse. It is the designer's job to understand these issues and to address them - to maintain some kind of control when everything else is shifting. Therefore as designers it is important to be sensitive to type and its usage. Although it might seem that graphic text is the easiest and most flexible solution to type it is important to use CSS text as much as possible. CSS offer faster load times and more flexible up datability.
