Something I am bad at maintaining, but so simple to do it has to be done. Nothing more annoying in a form if the tab order is illogical. While designers usually remember to do this, what is often forgotten the the tabbing order for an entire page selectable elements. Just go to any website and press tab and see where it selects first. It should be home link, but rarely is.

Dress up your fonts

Something simple to make your site font a little more modern and smooth. Google provide ability to add free embedded fonts – they can also be purchased at a charge you want to pay. You can pay nothing, but that would be mean spirited – people do a lot of work for free in web world, myself included. Payment isnt expected but believe me, it is hoped for 😉

How to do it

<link href=’http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=Ubuntu:regular,italic,bold,bolditalic&#8217; rel=’stylesheet’ type=’text/css’>

Just place the above string in <HEAD> section of you header file (assuming you are still not madly using static web page). The next stage is to alter your stylesheet, for example:-

font: normal 12px/18px ‘Arial’, Helvetica, sans-serif;
becomes
font: normal 12px/18px ‘Ubuntu’, Helvetica, sans-serif;

Simple! (Ensure you change all CSS font definitions where you want this embedded font to appear)
