Bootstrap MontageJS - HTML5 framework A Beginner's Guide to Wireframing Wireframing is an important step in any screen design process. It primarily allows you to define the information hierarchy of your design, making it easier for you to plan the layout according to how you want your user to process the information. If you've yet to use wireframing, it's time to get your feet wet. Before we get started though, a quick question: are you needing a pro website solution? If so, we have a number of HTML Templates and PSD Templates that may fit your needs. It's like an architectural blueprint; you need to see it in two-dimensional black and white diagrams before you understand how to build the actual house. At a deeper level, a wireframe is also very useful in determining how the user interacts with the interface. Wireframing is important because it allows the designer to plan the layout and interaction of an interface without being distracted by colors, typeface choices or even copy. However, I do use other tools and it depends on the project scenario.

Nil Gradisnik : CSS inverted border radius Everybody knows how to make rounded borders, it's right there in the CSS3 spec. Ever wondered how to do borders with radius inverted in pure CSS? I was facing this challenge a while ago and I just wanted to share the results. You start off witht this HTML structure As you can see it takes quite a few extra DOM elements to achieve this. The following CSS will do the trick You can control the border radius by changing the width and the height of the .inner i and adjust the margins accordingly, which is half of the width/height. One thing to note about this is that you will need a solid background color of the parent container. You can see the results at the bottom our Jobs page: Less Framework 4 I called Less Framework "a CSS grid system for designing adaptive websites". It was basically a fixed-width grid that adapted to a couple of then popular screen widths by shedding some of its columns. It also had matching typographic presets to go with it, built with a modular scale based on the golden ratio. Contrary to how most CSS frameworks work, Less Framework simply provided a set of code comments and visual templates, instead of having predefined classes to control the layout with. /* Default Layout: 992px. Less Framework was popular in the early days of responsive design. Eventually, I moved on from fixed-width grid systems and worked on a fully fluid-width one, in the form of Golden Grid System. Less Framework's popularity was helped by the following contributions and the lovely people behind them (dead links crossed off):

Skeleton: Beautiful Boilerplate for Responsive, Mobile-Friendly Development Vertically Center Multi-Lined Text If you only have a single word or a single line of text, there is a clever way to vertically center it in a block with CSS. You set the line-height of that text to be equal to the height of the box. Works great, but is a major fail if that text needs to wrap. A "speech bubble" is a classic example of somewhere we might want text to be centered both horizontally and vertically and be adaptable to multiple lines. View Demo Download Files The HTML is nothing fancy. <div class="area"><div class="bubble"><p>To look best, text should really be centered inside this bubble both vertically and horizontally. The "bubble" we'll set to display: table;, which really doesn't do much by itself, but then we can set the <p> element inside to be a table-cell, which allows us to use the vertical-align property on it. Does the trick beautifully I think. What about IE <= 7 ?! IE 8 is supporting CSS tables, but IE 7 and below do not. ... could be worse. First wrap the inside <p> in a new <div> and then: Share On
