10 jQuery Plugins to Improve Typography

We tend to believe that it is really awesome to have powerful, simple and reliable tools that give full web typography control for graphic designers. There are many various solutions that can help you enhance your website’s typography but today we want to focus on jQuery typography plugins. jQuery is a unique case of web phenomenon that has managed to penitrate into all spheres of web design industry. For those designers that have no clue what jQuery is and how it helps to handle the text, we would recommend to visit jQuery’s official website. And the following jQuery plugins allow you to apply various effects, change text properties and enhance website’s usability.

Of course we must remind you that all of these plugins require basic CSS skills and JavaScript experience (that means you have to be able to use Notepad or other code/text editor and be able to type search queries in Google). Basically we can divide our list of plugins into two major sections: text effects plugins and plugins for text control. So if you are going to use these awesome tools at your project don’t forget to prepare yourself to avoid possible issues in the future. From our personal expierence we can state that using jQuery is very addictive and it will be hard for you to stop. If you’re ready for it – let’s go start off!
