Baseline - a designer framework by ProjetUrbain.com “Real” baseline grid on the web When I first started to design Baseline, I wanted to base the grid on the work of Josef Müller-Brockmann, unfortunately some missing CSS attributes — like type leading — kept me from implementing a true grid based approach. I then decided to another look at the basic grid used in print: the baseline grid. Most frameworks and examples of baseline grids simply put the type on a regular line-height, but one problem with this approach is that the text rarely lines up correctly between columns and headlines — H1 through H6. Baseline try to align to the font metric to correctly line up headlines, paragraphs, form labels and any other major elements on the page baseline, creating a harmonious layout. How to use Baseline
Main Page On August 26 2020, the Project Gutenberg website underwent some major changes. These changes had been previewed since early 2020, and visitors to the old site were invited to try the new site, including giving input via a brief survey. The old site is no longer available. If you found yourself on this page unexpectedly, it is because an old page was redirected here. Please use the navigation menus at the top of the page to find what you were looking for. All of the functionality, and most of the content, from the old site is still here - but in a different location. plans & pricing We take pride in having the most transparent pricing possible with no hidden costs. We charge a one off set up fee for a turnkey solution of the different operating systems and then we charge a monthly fee, that covers all content distribution, hosting costs and all system upgrades. Once a publisher has paid his set up fee and monthly fees, there are no surprises. Pricing is not based on how much the publisher sells (downloads or revenue) but on tiered groups of active users (10,000, 20,000, 50,000) using the apps. This allows the publisher to grow the business without having to share revenue but rather a simple price for the service being offered. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for any special offers and for more information on our pricing plans.

That, in addition to rising tuition costs, boarding costs and activity fees, is making college more expensive than it's ever been.
