We have all read articles on responsive design. However, when you put theory into practice things are never as simple as they first appear. Fortunately you can always ask Ethan Marcotte for help!

In this session, representatives from major browser vendors including Chrome, Microsoft, Opera and the W3C will pull back the curtain revealing some of the challenges with implementation and interoperability. The goal is to have designers and developers get a glimpse into how CSS has struggled and finally gained its footing as the presentation layer in everything we do for the Web.
Elika Etemad, Invited Expert, W3C Invited Experts. Elika J. Etemad (fantasai) is a W3C Invited Expert on the CSS Working Group and a longtime contributor to the Mozilla Project. She edits CSS specifications, does layout engine QA, and occasionally codes for Gecko. Within the CSSWG she specializes in internationalization, testing, and generally getting things done.
Molly Holzschlag, Developer Rel, Opera Software. Having achieved a modicum of balance after her midlife crisis, Molly decided to finally get a job. She is now a Web Evangelist focusing on developer relations for the upstart Norwegian browser company, Opera Software. Earlier in life, Molly avoided a regular job including those silly start-up ventures and chose instead to write a lot of books and articles and stuff on Web standards, and talk a lot about them, too. She now avoids the former, while the latter is an ongoing inevitability. To learn more about Molly and her work, you can check out her blog at molly.com or interact with her on Twitter @mollydotcom. Better yet, come have a chat F2F at SXSW!
Sylvain Galineau, Program Manager, Microsoft. Sylvain spent many years working on web application servers and now helps design Internet Explorer. He represents Microsoft on the CSS Working Group and will buy everyone a round when IE6 goes away. Everyone.
Anyone building websites nowadays owes a great deal of thanks to Eric Meyer (@meyerweb), both for his contributions to web standards and CSS in general as well as to our community with the books and articles he’s written and the An Event Apart conferences. Along with Jeffrey Zeldman, which I spoke with last month about AEA coming back to Atlanta, I fired up skype and talked a bit about conferences and speaking at conferences with Eric Meyer. Talking with him about what he’s into right now, I got an emphatic “CSS3!”. We can definitely count on Eric to help us sort out the details within CSS3 as we all get deeper and deeper into it. As always he’s actively testing and writing about it for us all. I asked him for a tip on first time talk givers. “The audience is on your side” is what he shared with me, people have come out to hear you either entertain, educate or inspire them so all they want you to do is just that. So you don’t need to apologize, or freak about winning the audience over, they all want you to succeed. Remember that you’re speaking because you have something great to say or share, so bring it! That’s great advice for me personally and one i’ll take into account the next time I get up in front of a group. As with my last post on AEA Atlanta, the lineup looks amazing. Turns out this is a fairly unique lineup for an AEA event, so Atlanta you’re special!

The future of web typography is as uncertain as any other aspect of the medium, but one thing is for sure: it’s got momentum. At no other time has typography been taken so seriously by so many involved in the web, and that means there’s an awful lot of change and innovation to keep up with if you want to stay on the cutting edge of online type. In as much depth as 60 minutes will allow, this presentation will cover recent proposals and additions to CSS 3, from ligatures to hyphenation, synthesis to capitalisation, and much in between. It will cover the reasoning behind the new aspects of CSS 3, and reintroduce older properties which only now are becoming implemented and useful (and thus browser support will not be ignored either). No session on web typography would be complete without discussion of webfonts. There is still much learn in this field, both in what CSS can provide, and the technical implementation within browsers. But web typography is not just about CSS, or even good type setting. The bit that touches us most closely is the medium through which most of us read: text rendering and screens, and this presentation will discuss and demonstrate the cutting edge of both. Web typography is a hugely exciting part of web design, and the field that is moving most quickly. This presentation will give you everything you need to know to keep right on the spur of the serif, the apex of the ascender, and the edge of the curve.
Now that web designers suddenly face the challenge (and delight) of choosing fonts from an ever-growing selection, we thought it’s a good time to recommend some basic principles for making wise type choices.

Carl and Richard talk to Jonathan Snook about Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). Jon is a designer and developer, which makes him a rare creature indeed. He talks about the history and role of CSS in web development and how CSS3 makes significant strides in equalizing design and layout between browsers.

Review of A Book Apart editions; HTML5 For Web Designers & CSS3 For Web Designers. Plus a book giveaway!
Andy Clarke joins Jeffrey Zeldman and Dan Benjamin to talk about his new book, Hardboiled Web Design, the evolution of the web, and the right way to design with HTML5 and CSS3.
For almost 15 years, Web designers have had a list of 10 "Core Web fonts" to choose from. Many ask, "Why can’t I just download a font file from my Web server the same way I can an image?" Well, actually, you can. The verbiage for font linking is a little different than images, but the syntax for Webfont linking has been around for over 10 years as a part of the CSS standard. Web typography expert Jason Cranford Teague shows you how to apply the principles of fluid typography, to choose, find and use Webfonts and create your unique typographic voice. Come and find out why 2010 is going to be the year of Web typography.
