Essentially typesetting is the process by which text is prepared for printing, allocating type sizes, fonts and other stylistic features such as italicising and emboldening. In the past this process began with the text being retyped on a dedicated machine, but today text can be taken directly from any digital form. See Brown, R. J., A Capsule History of Typesetting, <http://www.serve.com/ephemera/library/reftype.htm>
