baseline.js Jump to Story

Baselines aren't just for Huey Lewis anymore... The typography concept of a baseline is one of the things that makes print design gorgeous, and your average web site look like a flyer for a bake sale. baseline.js is a javascript library that subtly resizes your images so they don't throw off the baseline of the surrounding text (resizing, on average, half of the font size of its parent element). Its not a 100% solution, but it does solve one of the hard problems in maintaining the baseline.
