Re: Images of Text and Promotional Materials

As part of that "nudge", I like to point out that IF the designer/developer
chooses to use real text instead of an image of text, THEN if a user has a
custom style sheet associated with their browser (
https://youtu.be/PHMSJP6WVy0?t=10565), the styles will be able to be
applied to the real text. For example, if I really want headings to stand
out on every site I visit, I might have a style sheet that uses a
particular color and font style so that I see it consistently on every
site. If your heading is an image, then my style cannot be applied to it.
