JA Tiris comes with multiple typography styles for headings, content, tables, buttons, quotes, lists and so on...

You can view the Typography Page on the Demo site: Typography Page

Here is the HTML code

You can use the above HTML code to make a similar page on your website and refer to the codes for using Typography.

IMPORTANT: These typography styles are specific to JA Tiris template and if you use them in your content and later decide to change the template, the styles will be broken, as these styles depend upon the template based css files (typo.css). We recommend using minimum typography, if you plan to change your template in future.
