This resource called Typoguide, A Pocket Guide to Master Every Day’s Typographic Adventures is a valuable resource that explains common typographical problems and terms. It has a clean, simple layout, with the ability to choose a specific topic at the top of the page and jump to, or the option to scroll through all of the topics in order. Topics covered range from the differences between typefaces and fonts, to the different uses of different types of dashes, brackets, and quotation marks. One nice feature that this resource includes is a list of keyboard shortcuts for the varying dashes, brackets, and quotation marks, with listings for different keyboards found around the world. If someone is looking for an easy to navigate resource to look up things that come up in typography all of the time, Typoguide is a good website to be familiar with.
