    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.

    Quick Tip: Flex Your ImagesTitlepic
    One glaring reason why many developers have chosen fixed-width over elastic sites is because using inline images can destroy the layout of a site - much like a stampede of cattle that repeatedly kick you in the groin. It just isn't fun at all. Sure, you can specify their widths using percentages or ems, but those methods aren't ideal. In such instances, why not try using the background technique? Read More…
