    A Detailed Look at the 960 CSS Framework200x200
    40 shares
    CSS frameworks are bloated. CSS frameworks are for people who don't know how to code. CSS is too simple to implement a framework. If you've ever read a tutorial on a CSS framework, I can guarantee that many comments mimic the previous statements. My guess is that the majority of these comments are stemmed from slight ignorance. Once you take the opportunity to spend some time with 960, you'll be amazed at how much time can potentially be saved when developing your web applications. At the very least, take ten minutes to review the framework. You can always press the delete key...though I doubt you will! Read More…

The book illustrates how, now that IE has passed the ACID 2 test, we can finally begin to build our websites the proper ways. Up until now, we've been forced to implement hacks to form the perfect layout - absolute positioning, precarious floats, etc. But that's all beginning to change! I'll show you how in twenty minutes.

    When it comes to CSS, there are lots of resources and supposed "expert tips" on the web. These are from unproven, self-proclaimed "gurus" who have no street cred in the design world.

It has taken the life (or will) of many a talented designer. Well, why give each element its own unique CSS entry, when you can mix match and add re-usable CSS styling to elements using multiple CSS classes? Read More…

    Quick Tip: Create Your Own Simple Reset.css File200x200
    4 shares
    Far too many novice CSS designers don't realize the importance of creating a "reset.css" file. When you have an environment where each browser has its own "default" styling, you'll often find yourself thumping your skull as you ask yourself, "Why is there a spacing here?" To save yourself some of the headaches that you'll undoubtedly experience, you'll need to create your own simple reset file. The problem with using one of the many currently existing frameworks is that they aren't tailored specifically to you. For example, I never use the deprecated "center" element in my projects. Consequently, I don't need to put it into my default styling. However, others may need to do so - though they would deserve a slap on the wrist...or the buttocks if you're so inclined. Read More…
