Graphics, User Interfaces Every now and then on OSNews, we discuss typography and language. Despite the fact that many think it's not relevant for computing - it most certainly is. Whether you're browsing the web, reading email, or chatting over IM - the most common element on your computer screen is typography. Today, I want to discuss something we barely have in my native language: small capitals.

The redesign will be HTML5 and make full use of semantic elements instead of classes and whatnot unless absolutely necessary. My own website uses no classes, even for complex articles like this http://camendesign.com/geos it reduces the writing overhead when you have decent semantic elements, as well as making the content play better in people’s RSS readers and other places it may end up.

Thom was dropping a big hint to me that he doesn’t want artsy-fartsy, pedantic and stuck-up typography conventions on OSnews—just plain readability. I’m with him on that one. I’m not a font-geek (thank Heavens), nor a typography nerd.
