For example: there are 5 typography related 'modules' in the top level list.
In module 1. 'Dive into Typography', there are 6 different resources within.
From the one of those 6 resources, here are a list of materials mentioned:
* book - Inside Paragraphs: Typographic Fundamentals 
* book - The Elements of Typographic Style 
* book - Stop Stealing Sheep & Find Out How Type Works 
* post - Unicode Beginners Introduction for Dummies Made Simple 
I've found this to be the norm for most posts, they may not cover absolutely everything about a single topic, but they will most definitely point you to somewhere that will.

I'd recommend checking out OpenFontLibrary.org & Kernest.com (shameless plug) for you can download the fonts, use them, and understand how they work in all the work you do - not just web browsers.
