Stephen Coles: What the iPad is missing

Stephen Coles tears down the iPad's lack of typographic features---here is his list of items:

  • Missing in iBooks: Ragged Right Alignment and Hyphenation
  • Missing in iBooks: Orphan/Widow Prevention, Proper Handling of Tables and Line Breaks
  • Missing in iBooks: "Embeddable" Fonts The lack of support for embedded fonts is a catastrophic failure. It's a massive black mark against Apple for anyone who's interested in seeing publishers improve the standard of ePubs.
  • Missing in iBooks: Font Options that Work for Books
  • Missing in iPhone/iPad OS: a Legible, Flexible UI Font
  • Missing in Pages: Accessible Text Options
  • Missing in Mobile Safari: True @font-face Support
  • Missing in Notes: Font Options
