Html5shiv - HTML5 IE enabling script

Html5shiv - HTML5 IE enabling script
Dual licensed under the MIT or GPL Version 2 licenses Full original, uncompressed source available here: Source code adds new HTML5 elements (which is simple code), but also supports printing HTML5 elements and includes the default styles for HTML5 elements, like block on article and section. Getting it to work in the browser was easy, @jon_neal and afarkas made IE actually print HTML5 elements - these guys are to take all the credit. To use this script, download the html5shiv and roll it in to your own code (ideally minified). Common question: what's the difference between the html5shim and the html5shiv? Related:  HTML / CSS

About normalize.css Normalize.css is a small CSS file that provides better cross-browser consistency in the default styling of HTML elements. It’s a modern, HTML5-ready, alternative to the traditional CSS reset. Normalize.css is currently used in some form by Twitter Bootstrap, HTML5 Boilerplate, GOV.UK, Rdio, CSS Tricks, and many other frameworks, toolkits, and sites. Overview Normalize.css is an alternative to CSS resets. The aims of normalize.css are as follows: Preserve useful browser defaults rather than erasing them.Normalize styles for a wide range of HTML elements.Correct bugs and common browser inconsistencies.Improve usability with subtle improvements.Explain the code using comments and detailed documentation. It supports a wide range of browsers (including mobile browsers) and includes CSS that normalizes HTML5 elements, typography, lists, embedded content, forms, and tables. Despite the project being based on the principle of normalization, it uses pragmatic defaults where they are preferable.

Designing CSS Layouts With Flexbox Is As Easy As Pie Advertisement This article is an updated excerpt of the chapter “Restyle, Recode, Reimagine With CSS3″ from our Smashing Book #3, written by Lea Verou and David Storey. — Ed. Flexible box layout (or flexbox) is a new box model optimized for UI layout. As one of the first CSS modules designed for actual layout (floats were really meant mostly for things such as wrapping text around images), it makes a lot of tasks much easier, or even possible at all. Flexbox’s repertoire includes the simple centering of elements (both horizontally and vertically), the expansion and contraction of elements to fill available space, and source-code independent layout, among others abilities. Flexbox has lived a storied existence. There are, however, some caveats. When you specify that an element will use the flexbox model, its children are laid out along either the horizontal or vertical axis, depending on the direction specified. Example: Horizontal And Vertical Centering (Or The Holy Grail Of Web Design) <!

scottjehl/Respond CSS Tools: Reset CSS The goal of a reset stylesheet is to reduce browser inconsistencies in things like default line heights, margins and font sizes of headings, and so on. The general reasoning behind this was discussed in a May 2007 post, if you're interested. Reset styles quite often appear in CSS frameworks, and the original "meyerweb reset" found its way into Blueprint, among others. The reset styles given here are intentionally very generic. There isn't any default color or background set for the body element, for example. In other words, this is a starting point, not a self-contained black box of no-touchiness. If you want to use my reset styles, then feel free! Previous Versions v1.0 (200802) Acknowledgments Thanks to Paul Chaplin for the blockquote / q rules.

Selectivizr - CSS3 pseudo-class and attribute selectors for IE 6-8 Five simple steps to designing grid systems - Part 5 – September 19th, 2005 – It’s been a while, but this is the final part in my series ‘Five Simple Steps to designing Grid Systems’. Flexible vs Fixed. Lets’s start by briefly examining Fixed and Flexible, or Fluid designs. They both have their merits. Fixed width designs are, well, just easier to produce. Flexible width designs scale to the user’s resolution, and therefore the browser window. However, they both also have the down sides such as fixed layouts generally scale badly and flexible layouts tend to look very wide and short. Flexible grids As discussed the first few parts of this series, grid system design deals in fixed measurements - the media size, the type size and ultimately the grid size. I’ve been giving flexible width a lot of thought over the past few weeks in preparation for writing this article. Adaptive Grid Systems Ideally grid systems should be designed around the type size. The grid elements adapt to the user’s changes, andThe grid must retain it’s orginal proportions
