    I'd like to comment that I don't feel the excessive use of white-space helps the point of 'good typography'... It feels far too broken up, particularly on a large screen.

    I'd also note that 'picking a typeface with lots of weights' isn't good in web design. This can add excessive page-load time, especially if multiple fonts are in use. That's something that works well in print.

    I also feel as if paying attention to Kerning should be more than a final footnote haha.

    Really, this is very handy as student material. However I'd hope no professionals read it and go, "oh wow I hadn't thought about left alignment". :P
