TeX-ish web typography

I have a soft spot for TeX and the beautiful typesetting you can create with it, and I have tried to get some of the nice things from TeX into my webdesign — and mostly failed — but Peter K. Sheerin in "The Trouble With EM 'n EN (and Other Shady Characters)" set quite a few things straight for me. I'm currently working with a new design and a new backend to generate the webpages, and I'll incorporate these nice tricks in the new code which I haven't written a single line of yet.

Untill then I'll continue my bad old habits. Sorry.
