10.2.1. Use CSS to format text

Use CSS to format text. Logos and other distinctive elements that belong to a company’s corporate charter can be excluded from this recommendation. Do not use images of text except as a last resort.


Special attention should have been paid to the feasibility of this point from the start of the graphic design stage.

If this did not happen, refer to the section “2.1.3. Make sure that typefaces can be integrated in text format” in the Accessibility guidelines for graphic design manual and make contact with the person responsible for creating the mock-ups.


If needed, do not hesitate to use the property CSS3 @font-face.


Technologies such as cufón and sIFR do not meet the demands of accessibility requirements, and should not be used for an accessible website or application.
