TIL: It looks like you can improve readability by adding padding to paragraph text to prevent it from taking up the whole width of the container / screen.

Flawless Typography says 66 chars per line. 🤓

@jag clamping line-length is a sure-fire way to make big blocks of text more readable 🙂

max-width: 60ch is usually my jam nowadays.

@hankchizljaw I didn't know that `ch` was a unit! 😭 Beautiful.

@jag pro-tip: it’s the width of the zero character (0) in the rendered font.
