CSS ShortHand Property Cheat Sheet digg Shorthand properties can be used to set several properties at once, in a single declaration, instead of wasting your precious time and space making declaration for each individual property. With css shorthand we make our code less complicated and more readable for those who want to explore it. Unfortunately, quite a few shorthand properties are available, that`s why we`ve collected most useful and most used for you. Hierarchical Menus with the Underrated style.display Object One of the most common DHTML requests I get is for a Windows Explorer-style hierarchical menu, where there's a list of topics or "folders" that a user can click on to reveal subtopics, or "files," within that folder. It's a common desktop metaphor that seems ever more necessary on the Web, especially as we see navigation bars incorporating larger and more complex content while still trying to fit on the screen. Hierarchical menus are a solution to the common problem of having too many links in too small a space. But, I figured, there are several Web sites where you can find large, complex scripts to create large, complex hierarchical menus. Instead, I'll show you how to make your own menus, of any length or complexity, with the use of an extremely useful and widely unknown DOM CSS property, style.display.visibility. When you set an element to visibility="hidden", it simply disappears while still taking up space on the page, almost as if it were transparent.
Math in HTML (and CSS) - presenting mathematical expressions on Web pages Typesetting math: 100% How to present mathematical expressions using a language that has so little markup for them? Web authors often need resort to images, but there are more flexible approaches, like MathJax. Moreover, if you need just some special symbols or simple expressions, a lot can be done in HTML, assisted with style sheets (CSS). This document mainly discusses relatively simple mathematical expressions rendered one-dimensionally (inline), though possibly with superscripts or subscripts. The word “mathematical” is used in a rather broad sense here, covering different formalisms and symbols, including the symbols of physics, formal logic, etc. Hover.css - Collection Of CSS3 Powered Hover Effects All Hover.css effects make use of a single element (with the help of some pseudo-elements where necessary), are self contained so you can easily copy and paste them, and come in CSS, Sass, and LESS flavours. Many effects use CSS3 features such as transitions, transforms and animations. Old browsers that don't support these features may need some extra attention to be certain a fallback hover effect is still in place. Licenses
Responsive Web Design The English architect Christopher Wren once quipped that his chosen field “aims for Eternity,” and there’s something appealing about that formula: Unlike the web, which often feels like aiming for next week, architecture is a discipline very much defined by its permanence. Article Continues Below A building’s foundation defines its footprint, which defines its frame, which shapes the facade. Each phase of the architectural process is more immutable, more unchanging than the last. Creative decisions quite literally shape a physical space, defining the way in which people move through its confines for decades or even centuries. Working on the web, however, is a wholly different matter.
Social Media Sparked, Accelerated Egypt's Revolutionary Fire Anti-government protesters celebrate in Tahrir Square in downtown Cairo Friday. Fireworks burst, and Egypt exploded with joy and tears of relief after pro-democracy protesters brought down President Hosni Mubarak with a momentous march on his palaces and state TV. Emilio Morenatti/AP If three decades of violent repression and despotic rule were kindling for the Egyptian revolution, social media was both a spark and an accelerant for the movement. Did social media like Facebook and Twitter cause the revolution?
CSS for Accessibility W3C Note 6 November 2000 This version: (plain text, PostScript, PDF, gzip tar file of HTML, zip archive of HTML) Social networks credited with role in toppling Egypt's Mubarak As Egypt's embattled President Hosni Mubarak gave up his presidency Friday, analysts and some of the Egyptian protestors said he'd still be in charge if not for the power of social networking. After 18 days of tumultuous protests and stubborn refusals to leave a position he's held for 30 years, Mubarakgave up power today, handing over authority to the nation's military leaders. During a time of unrest that saw Mubarak's regime disconnect Egypt from the Internet for several days, social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter served as critical tools for the people seeking to topple the long-time ruler. President Barack Obama this afternoon noted the role of technology in the uprising, praising Egyptians who used "their creativity, talent and technology to call for a government that represented their hopes and not their fears." "Because of that, Mubarak and his regime felt they had no other choice than to step down."
Learn CSS Positioning in Ten Steps: position static relative absolute float 1. position:static The default positioning for all elements is position:static, which means the element is not positioned and occurs where it normally would in the document. Normally you wouldn't specify this unless you needed to override a positioning that had been previously set. 2. position:relative If you specify position:relative, then you can use top or bottom, and left or right to move the element relative to where it would normally occur in the document.
