niceText Plug-in

niceText

NiceText Plug-in allows you to create a nicer text on the site. When using it you do not need to use only standard fonts to display text on the site. In addition, when using this plug-in, text will be displayed with the smoothing, which improves its visual perception.

All prototypes of this plug-in that I know work on the principle of replacing text by the picture in different ways, and this entails the following disadvantages:

  • Search engne does not see the text, because there is a picture instead of it;
  • links, located in the text, can not be inserted in the picture;
  • you can not insert other images from the text in the picture (actually, you can but it's so difficult that no one has done it yet).

NiceText plug-in is deprived of all these deficiencies.

The advantages of niceText plug-in:

  • works in all modern browsers starting from IE6;
  • does not replace the text with the picture (this allows search engines to index the text on the site);
  • does not create extra load on the server (plug-in does not generate an  image from text, but only causes the browser to display text differently);
  • plug-in has the ability to set parameters for the text such as: font, size, gradient fill of the text, shadow.
  • allows to write text using almost any existing font, at the same time text will be displayed with the smoothing, which improves its visual perception;
  • text can be written on any background;
  • styles can be applied using CSS selectors;
  • styles of visual display are used over the existing CSS instructions. Thus, if in CSS the text color is set as blue, after the plug-in processes the text the color will remain blue.
