Given the choice between body text in an image and body text as actual text in a web page, I will always choose the web page. I am not shy around HTML and CSS (See this website? All me.), so I went for it. I used CSS to set the typeface (Verdana), size, and leading (known simply as “line-height” in CSS) and I used plain ol’ HTML tables for the grid layout. (Check the source code if you wanna see it. I know tables aren’t the greatest method for layouts, but it’s at least reliable.)

Here’s what I’ve done:

Stylesheet (Yeah, it’s a separate file. That’s how I roll.)
