myspace Font Emission Typography
I introduced the concept of Font Emission Typography (since relabeled slightly) in my last post. I've since implemented a more systematic approach. This controls four different typographical factors in trying to trace just what the hell is going on with the font-styling in myspace profile pages: color, font-family, font-size, font-styling.

The effects of this are currently on display on my recivilized profile. [Update: I've posted a screenshot to this blog.]

The result is unsightly, but not uninsightful.

Here is the Myspace Eclectic Style Sheet that I'm actually using:

<style type="text/css">

NOTE { ** FONT-COLOR EMISSIONS TOMOGRAPHY ** }
NOTE { for more information... myspacecivilized.blogspot.com }

NOTE { BODY FONTS }

</style>


(Incidentally, the only practical application for FET I can think of would be for a myspace webpage.)

I'm new to myspace and new to CSS. Do you have a diagram or layout of a typical myspace profile - I just need to know how the tables are named. Which box is "table", which is "table table", which is "table table table"? Thank you - your site is wonderful!
