yes, damn him and his time zone too. Leaving work (slacker). I've still got three hours to put in until they let me go home on account of good behavior

Patik (584959) | more than 10 years ago | (#9700904)

Kinda depends on your HTML. I usually code from scratch on my own based on someone else's drawn design. Try searching for 'css templates'.

Web Standards Link Bonanza (1)

aWalrus (239802) | more than 10 years ago | (#9700952)

Dan Cederholm compiled this list [simplebits.com] of useful sites and articles on the subject of Web Standards and CSS.

If you want an introductory article, I'd like to (un)humbly recommend one by yours truly: Tables vs. CSS - A fight to the death [sitepoint.com] over at Sitepoint.

Safety Cap (253500) | more than 10 years ago | (#9701137)

A List Apart [alistapart.com] usually has quality articles on CSS. Check each article's comments for even better techniques.

Then there's the CSS Panic Guide [thenoodleincident.com] . Don't leave home without it.

W3C (1)

dead sun (104217) | more than 10 years ago | (#9701291)

No place to go but to the source of the madness itself, www.w3c.org [w3c.org]

If you want premade stuff I have no idea. I usually just recycle what I've done previously and tweak to my wants.

Occasionally I see something neat on a website I'm visiting. If that's the case it isn't difficult to get the source at all. Just a peek to see what they're doing in CSS and then I do it myself, looking further at w3c if I have to. I don't wholesale copy. :)

Good programming practice.... (1)

Code reuse

I have been building on a style.css since 1999, with different classes defining little tricks that I have picked up. For most html design jobs, getting a suitable mock-up for the customer and then actually moving their content to it is the problem, the base page templates take almost no time.

Think of it as your own little C/C++ library/header files (or jslib for you mozilla hackers).

The CSS Zen Garden (1)

VisorGuy (548245) | more than 10 years ago | (#9701790)

It's quite a demonstration.

It is simply:

The Bungi (221687) | more than 10 years ago | (#9702654)

Glish [glish.com] . Also BrainJar [brainjar.com] .

CSS Sidebar (1)

LPetrazickis (557952) | more than 10 years ago | (#9702859)

There's a nifty CSS 2.1 sidebar out there. I use it too look up property values and stuff

Directory for the Mozilla Suite [netscape.com]

Direct link for Opera's [Add Panel] [netscape.com] .

glish.com: CSS Layout Techniques [glish.com]

A List Apart: CSS [alistapart.com]

literarymoose.org: CSS Selectors for Absolute Beginners [literarymoose.info] (the rest of that site [literarymoose.info] is super-advanced and super-esoteric IMHO:)

TopStyle Lite (1)

rdewald (229443) | more than 10 years ago | (#9703973)

I use the free crippled [bradsoft.com] version of a css editor called Top Style Lite [bradsoft.com] . For being free, it's a big help.

I don't know about hip, (1)

Quantum Jim (610382) | more than 10 years ago | (#9714628)

I don't know if it's hip, but my no. 1 resource for CSS is straight form the author's mouths: Cascading Style Sheets: Designing for the Web [amazon.com] . There are some mistakes, but they are easy to catch and the text explains CSS well. I also recommend checking out the specs [w3.org] directly; they are highly readable and contain numerous examples. Everything else is just a supplement. (Note: Info on browser quirks can be found almost everywhere. I suggest starting with css-discuss's wiki [incutio.com] .)

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
