UT Tyler Web Publishing Standards

Typography and Fonts

Searchability of text on UT Tyler Web pages is of utmost importance. It is important to develop your page using machine-readable text (HTML text). Avoid uploading graphics/images as content for the page. Building machine-readable text pages will assure content is accessible and aid search engines in the effective indexing of the content of your pages


  • The template font is pre-set. Bold font should be used sparingly.
  • ALL caps and overuse of bold should be avoided along with exclamation marks.
  • Use H1 and H2 headings only at the top of each page. 
  • Avoid specifying fixed pixel sizes for your fonts.
  • Keep all text left-aligned.
  • Avoid erroneous code into the HTML editor.
  • Remove extra spacing between paragraphs.
  • Use text links to link back to other pages or outside links.

Font Colors

  • The font colors used in the templates are preset and should never be overwritten.

Aligning Text

  • Please avoid centered text.
  • Do not use the "heading" options to style a paragraph.
  • The default is left-aligned text.

NOTE: It is not acceptable to use style tags to work around the UT Tyler CSS (Style Sheet).
