This article explains how the MindTouch editor handles font styling to comply with CSS best practices.
What are the benefits of CSS-compliant fonts?
The MindTouch editor styles are handled through class names to make maintenance easier and your HTML more accessible. This allows users to make further customizations via the control panel:
- Change default styles en masse.
- Create responsive custom styles that adapt to the device being used to view the site.
- Optimize performance by creating smaller, optimized page sizes.
- Clean up your HTML code, making your content more accessible to search engines and text reader assistive technology.
The separation of design from content (HTML) allows developers to implement design choices quickly without having to go through every page to find and change each inline style. As web design practices change over time, it is important to stay nimble, current and optimized.
