Quick Tips & Resources

Here are some resources related to this lesson
  • If you’re looking for a pattern for your page background, try Subtle Patterns (a curated site with free patterns — he just asks that you credit him in your HTML or CSS code).
  • There are also plenty of “Top 10” lists of places to find background images as well as tutorials on how to make your own background pattern. Google is your friend.
  • Testing fonts can be long and painful. I’ve tested hundreds of web fonts already and posted a few good ones at Good Web Fonts. They all work well across browsers and operating systems.
