Syntactical Guidelines in Journalistic Story Packaging

The Not Just A Number site, by the Bay Area News Group, demonstrates a good use of the "stress" syntactical guideline because it uses "art" in the right places to draw attention, emphasis and interest to certain elements of the story package.

The interface and layout in general is almost mono-toned, making an emphasis on active and passive element of the design hard to pick out.
