Anyone know why of all the major design tutorials on here, TH has yet to add InDesign or Typography?

Considering the industry standards and basic essentials, blows my mind why a company as effective as TH has yet to add these. Why TH!?! Why?!?

I believe there is a Web Typography part to Css Foundations.

InDesign is primarily a program used in designing printed material. Although it does have some tools to export for the web, it is not an industry standard program as Photoshop, Illustrator and Fireworks would be for creating websites and apps. Since the courses provided by Treehouse deal with digital media it makes more sense to provide Typography for the web. The CSS Foundations course has one that covers the basics fairly well as well as links to sites in the Teacher's notes to outside resources if that is something you are interested in learning more about. The book "Elements of Typographical Style" is also worth checking out. Hope that helps!
