CSS gives you great control over the way your text is displayed. You can change the text size, color, style, and more. You probably already knew how to make text bold or underlined, but did you know you could resize your font using percentages?
With 2011 done and gone, it is time to break out some reviews of what the year had to offer. To pay homage to the 2012 election process, I thought it would be interesting to see the the difference between popular designs and (albeit subjectively) good designs — because we all know there’s often very little correlation. To my surprise, the sites which allowed ranking of CSS designs did a good job of pushing solid design to the top. While I had to sift through a lot of generic designs, I came across a number of themes that I believe were somewhat new to 2011.

Posted on May 26, 2009. Last updated on December 14, 2012 The float property of CSS is a powerful way to lay out the elements of a web page. For example, an image might be floated so that text will wrap around it; or divs may be floated so that they will sit side by side. When an element is floated, it is “taken out of the document flow”—meaning that the other elements (for the most part) act like it’s not there—and this can cause some unexpected layout results.
A true story about survival in the Adirondack Mountains. The park covers 6.1 million acres, a land area greater than Vermont, or than Yellowstone, Yosemite, Grand Canyon, Glacier, and Great Smoky Mountains National Parks combined. The Adirondacks are also home to thousands of black bears, deadly snakes, and countless other dangers. Abandoned in the middle of the park with no survival experience and very few supplies, the entire journey was documented and filmed. Click here to watch the whole series!
Important Note This document is not intended as a simple introduction to the inline formatting model. It is instead a terse dissection of the terms and processes inherent in inline formatting, and the consequences of the rules laid out in CSS2. The learning curve here is quite steep; missing even a small point may result in fundamental misunderstanding. This document has withstood repeated scrutiny from both the CSS Working Group and the wider CSS community, but that does not mean it is either perfect or complete. There may be implications which are not presented here, and it is possible that some phrasing will be confusing to new readers.
