East Asian Typography On The Web
There are more than 6000 languages in the world today, many with writing systems that are not the Western norm of top-to-bottom, left-to-right. This talk traces the parallel history of western and eastern typography from handwriting to the internet age, setting the context for how the web is a brand new medium for typesetting. CSS allows us to implement advanced typographic features and multi-directional layouts, that not only benefits internationalisation, but opens up a myriad of options for creative and interesting layouts in general as well.
