Detail is a typography component used for disclosing extra information or smaller items in hierarchical relationships of text.
Details can be displayed in serif or sans serif (default).
Detail weight is another way to create or enhance visual hierarchy, in addition to size. Heavier and lighter weights can add personality or style to an experience.
Details have a variety of sizes available. These sizes are defined using T-shirt sizing in order to support multiple scales without direct correlation to pixel values.
From the design point of view, each component has a number of options. These options and their names are platform agnostic, and each implementation should adapt these to fit into their framework.
|script||latin / han / arabic / hebrew||–|
|weight||light / default||default|
|size||S / M / L / XL||M (content-based UI)|
S (application UI)
Details use a 1.3× multiplier for Latin, Arabic, and Hebrew scripts. Han scripts (Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, and Korean), use a 1.5× multiplier to ensure readability. This applies to all Spectrum fonts as well as their fallback fonts.
Top margins are the detail font size divided by 1.125. Bottom margins are 0.25× the detail font size.
Details can be assigned a heading level in HTML that is independent of typography component, size, weight, or other properties.
