Description

Font is defined as a design describing size, style, height and thickness for a groups of characters. E.g. a group of characters for Times New Roman for a certain size(lets say 10) is a font.


Some usability guidelines

  • Unless required, try to use the fonts which are already defined by the system.
  • While defining the font size, the screen resolution must be kept in mind.
  • Font should be simple and the characters should be easily readable.
  • Keep the backgrounds behind your text solid and plain, it is more readable.
  • While using background images, use a proper combination of font type and colour so that the text is readable.
  • Use Bold font for heading of text paragraph.
  • The best combination for readability is black font on a white background.
  • Because blue-receptors in the eye are least numerous, avoid blue for small font.
