The top 20 CSS sites of 2012 The top 20 CSS sites of 2012 2012 in review: designer Val Head selects 20 of the best uses of CSS we've seen this year. 2012 has been an impressive year for unique and surprising uses of CSS! Picking a list of the best uses of CSS for the year is a tough challenge since CSS covers everything from media queries and web type to animations and 3D. You can't really make much of a website without CSS! I've picked a list of standouts from the past year across all the many ways CSS can show its face. It's impossible to compare the use of web type to cutting edge CSS 3D one to one, so I present these selections in no particular order.
Web Advent 2012 / Dealing with Email Image Blocking You probably get a lot of email and even more newsletters. My HTML email newsletters are all mixed in with my plain-text emails, and when I’m going through my inbox, it’s a quick and efficient process. I want to be able to get the point of each email quickly. When I open an HTML email and see rows of blank outlined boxes, I immediately think, “this isn’t relevant or necessary to me; moving on.” I very rarely decide to turn the images on. One alarming statistic found that 30% of recipients are unaware that images are even disabled in the first place! Web Advent 2012 / Dealing with Email Image Blocking
HTML_CodeSniffer – Check Any HTML With The Given Web Standard HTML_CodeSniffer – Check Any HTML With The Given Web Standard HTML_CodeSniffer is a bookmarklet to check if a web page validates for the selected standard. The bookmarklet is open source, has a slick interface and currently comes with a set of 3 standards that enforce the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. It displays the errors, warnings + notices and their details can still be viewed within the bookmarklet. The standards and their rules are hosted in the GitHub repository, so, once a new standard or rule is added by the developer, the bookmarklet will auto-update.

.htaccess Files for the Rest of Us .htaccess files are used to configure Apache, as well a range of other web servers. Despite the .htaccess file type extension, they are simply text files that can be edited using any text-editor. In this article, we'll review what they are, and how you can use them in your projects. Please note that .htaccess files don't work on Windows-based systems, although they can be edited and uploaded to a compatible web server, and on Linux-based systems they are hidden by default. .htaccess Files for the Rest of Us

An expanding text area is a multi-line text input field that expands in height to fit its contents. This UI element is commonly found in both desktop and mobile applications, such as the SMS composition field on the iPhone. Examples can also be found on the web, including on Facebook, where it’s used extensively. It’s a good choice wherever you don’t know how much text the user will write and you want to keep the layout compact; as such, it’s especially useful on interfaces targeted at smartphones.

CSS Selectors and Pseudo Selectors and browser support This page has not been updated for some time and some of the browser versions are obsolete - I'm working on a better format for the page, so check back every now and then :) The following is a range of CSS tests of the most common browsers' support for selectors and pseudo selectors.

What if social networks were more like email? What if they were all inter-connected, and you could choose which software (and even which provider) to use based purely on what they offered you? Now they are! Friendica is bringing them all together. All of these can be included in your Friendica "social stream" where you may interact with them using a familiar conversational interface - and perhaps arrange them into private conversation groups. This lets you easily separate what posts can be seen by your co-workers and your beer-drinking buddies.
