The web font explosion of the web encouraged us to create a glorified
<span> injector called Lettering.js to help us on our Lost World’s Fair project for IE9.
Lettering.js gave you typographic control over every letter, word, or line of text in a simple jQuery plugin API. We used this a lot for kerning or adding a bit of fun and dimension to websites.
I don’t really recommend using Lettering.js anymore. It has some accessibility issues that are hard to get around (screen. readers. read. each. span. and. pause. every. time.), but it was a great experiment and one that set me on an interesting path of creating tiny jQuery plugins.
