This is an intriguing website that focuses on typography as a means to make legal documents look better aesthetically, and arguably, more professional and more persuasive. The founder of this website is a typographer-turned-lawyer, and he gives ample examples to back up his theory that presentation is tantamount. Visitors unfamiliar with typography can learn about it by clicking on the link "Why is typography important?" Once visitors have digested that, they can take actual lessons in typography, from basic to advanced. Some of the topics covered are "Straight Quotes and Curly Quotes", "How to Pick a Font", "Condensed vs. Squished Fonts". The website's author mentions in "How to Use This Website", that he does not include all the lessons that would usually be in a typography course or treatise, but rather he includes only those that would be useful to a lawyer. For the disbelieving lawyers out there who think the courts restrict what fonts can be used in their court system, go to the link "Appendix: Court Rules Regarding Fonts" to read official court rules regarding font, for the 50 states and the federal system.
