GRID thinking with type

1. How did Jan Tschichold’s theory of “the new typography” affect modern designers? How did he use grid systems to illustrate new meaning of typography? 

2. How are grid systems used in web differ from grid construction for print media? Do you think grids are more useful in web? 

3. How are grid constructions related to the actual content? for example, designers can express with text to illustrate meaning of the content,but can grids express the content as well? or are they suppose to just organize the content? (refer to pg 138-golden section)
