Every web developer should have in their toolbox a collection of CSS tools and resources like the ones outlined in this article. A set of techniques that you rely on and that are always at the ready to cover any possible eventuality. You will find not a selection of the latest innovative CSS techniques (there are some) in this article, merely a collection of tools, resources and downloads that can be used by web designers for solutions to everyday CSS design and coding solutions. The resources below have been split into four categories: CSS Download Packages (all of the CSS resources offer multiple variations of each technique), Downloadable CSS Tools (the resources within this category offers specialized templates), Web, Mobile & Form Frameworks (+ tools and templates to help you get started with each); Feature-Rich and Outstanding Mobile & Web Templates and finally, a selection of tools to help with cross browser compatibility.
We have been publishing articles about CSS3 for a while now, and we keep receiving angry e-mails from some developers who complain that it doesn’t make sense to use CSS3 today. Yes, Internet Explorer doesn’t support most CSS3 properties. And yes, CSS3 vendor prefixes are bad for maintainability (and this is why we recommend extracting vendor prefixes in a separate CSS3 file).
CSS3 is coming . Although the browser support of CSS 3 is still very limited , many designers across the globe experiment with new powerful features of the language, using graceful degradation for users with older browsers and using the new possibilites of CSS3 for users with modern browsers. That’s a reasonable solution — after all it doesn’t make sense to avoid learning CSS3 (that will be heavily used in the future) only because these features are not supported yet.
By Chris Spooner There are exciting new features in the pipeline for Cascading Style Sheets that will allow for an explosion of creativity in Web design. These features include CSS styling rules that are being released with the upcoming CSS3 specification . Realistically, you won’t be able to use these on your everyday client projects for another few years, but for design blogs and websites aimed at the Web design community, these features can help you push the boundaries of modern Web design today, adding that extra spice to your design and helping the industry move forward. Here are five techniques snatched from the future that you can put into practice in your website designs today. 1.
Cascading Style Sheets were introduced 13 years ago, and the widely adopted CSS 2.1 standard has existed for 11 years now. When we look at websites that were created 11 years ago, it’s clear that we are a thousand miles away from that era. It is quite remarkable how much Web development has evolved over the years, in a way we would never have imagined then. So why is it that, when it comes to CSS, we’re stuck in the past and so afraid of experimenting?
Explanation of colors & status codes W3C indicates the maturity of specifications by a status code. The CSS working group uses the following, from least to most stable: The names are defined in sections 7.3 and 7.4 of the W3C process document. A REC is what is normally referred to as a “standard.”
The Zen Elements CSS3 Series has just completed an overhaul (Updated 26th May, 2011), not only providing a few additional CSS3 tutorials but also a revised CSS3 Browser Compatibility Chart! What is CSS , yet alone CSS3 ? Very briefly, CSS stands for ‘Cascading Style Sheets’ and is a mark-up language for altering and giving style to a website or elements within a website. The 3 represents the next generation/version of style sheet language. It is very important to learn that while it is fun to learn and play with CSS3, it is still not yet fully supported in current browsers.
If you follow CSS, you’re probably sick of hearing promises of CSS 3 — the next generation style sheet language that should have been here several years ago. Well, the specification document still isn’t finalized. If you’re impatient, you’re not alone. Browser manufacturers have already started rolling out support for many of the new features even if they aren’t yet set in stone. Opera and Safari have been leading the way when it comes to CSS 3 features, but Firefox 3 packs in a few and 3.1 promises to bring Firefox alongside the others. Yeah, we know what you’re thinking: “I can’t do it.
