Typography standards

Style Sheets

Most pages hosted on udel.edu and the OCM Web Templates use style sheets to define the appearance of HTML text. OCM is working in conjunction with IT Client Support & Services to develop style sheets which meet accessibility requirements and provide a consistent look throughout the spectrum of pages which make up “udel.edu”.

Why use style sheets?

Style sheets separate the content of a Web page from its appearance. This allows Web editors to update content without affecting the presentation, and allows Web designers to change the presentation without affecting the content. By designing your pages using a single, or even multiple, external style sheets, you can apply those changes to your site by modifying the style sheet and then simply uploading the modified version.

Please visit A List Apart for an excellent overview. More standards will be emerging from both the Drupal implementation and ongoing work bewteen OCM and IT Client Support & Services to improve our web presence and build a consistent and accessible visitor experience across udel.edu.
