Creating Liquid Layouts with Negative Margins I was recently confronted with the task of creating a two-column liquid layout with a header and footer in which the content needed to come before the sidebar in the source code. I took opportunity to demonstrate an under-used aspect of CSS: negative margins. Negative margins allow us to push the content area away from the sides of the browser, leaving room for the sidebar. Starting out simple#section1 To show how negative margins can be helpful in creating liquid layouts, let’s start by creating a liquid two-column layout with a header and footer. Given the way that floats work, it would be easiest to put the sidebar before the content area, allowing it to float to the right of the rest of the content. The source code we want#section2 Let’s take a look at what we want our source code to look like for our two-column layout, with a header and a footer: <div id="header">header</div><div id="container"><h1>content</h1><p>Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetuer adipiscing elit.

Changing the viewport meta tag with JavaScript 07 March, 2014 by Tom Elliott Responsive Web Design, let’s face it, can be tricky. There are essentially two basic elements to make responsive websites work: CSS media queries, that change the styling of your site at different browser sizes using breakpoints and the viewport meta tag. Without the viewport meta tag and even if your site uses CSS media queries, most devices will resize a website to the page to a standardish size of 900-1000 pixels, a common resolution for many fixed width websites. Most responsive sites usually use the below standard viewport meta tag, with width=device-width. Device resolutions vary greatly, with one of the smallest resolutions found with the HTC Wildfire with a resolution of 240×320 pixels. You might have a responsive site for example that works well down to 480 pixels, but to get responsive down as low as 240 may involve resizing many elements and a disproportionate amount of work. The JavaScript required to change the viewport meta tag is as follows.

Check out CSSresetr for an easy way to test and download the best reset styles for your next design. Using CSS to style semantically meaningful (X)HTML markup is an important key to modern web design practices. In a perfect world, every browser would interpret and apply all CSS rules in exactly the same way. Many, if not all, major modern browsers (e.g., Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Netscape, et al) implement their own generalized CSS rules, which often conflict with designer-applied styles. Needless to say, the unpredictable manner in which browsers implement CSS requires us to seek realistic browser equalization strategies. Using a well-crafted set of global CSS reset styles enables designers to make assumptions about the defualt behavior of browsers. In this article, I have rounded up a hand-selected collection of freely available global CSS reset styles.

Strong Layout Systems by Eric Meyer Eric is at An Event Apart in Atlanta talking about Strong Layout Systems. Following on from Brother Jeffrey’s presentation, he begins with a reading… In the beginning Sir Tim created the server and the browser. That decision is quite striking. Here’s a screenshot, courtesy of Grant Hutchinson, of the preferences in the original Mosaic browser. As with all creations, there was a fall. The backlash came from the Web Standards Project. But CSS was an appearance system; not a layout system. For CSS2, they realised that designers really liked to lay things out (who knew?) The first major site to launch with CSS for positioning was Doug’s redesign of (it didn’t use floats). These were hacks. We’re now getting to the point where can start to revisit our assumptions about what is and isn’t possible with CSS. We’ve got viewport units: vh and vw—viewport height and viewport width (in percentages relative to the viewport, not the parent element). Beyond flexbox, we have grids.

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. Let's move div-1 down 20 pixels, and to the left 40 pixels: Notice the space where div-1 normally would have been if we had not moved it: now it is an empty space. It appears that position:relative is not very useful, but it will perform an important task later in this tutorial. 3. position:absolute When you specify position:absolute, the element is removed from the document and placed exactly where you tell it to go. Let's move div-1a to the top right of the page: What I really want is to position div-1a relative to div-1. Footnotes 10.

How To Keep The Footer At The Bottom of the Page with CSS A familiar problem for many developers. A stunning design, perfectly crafted in semantic markup and CSS, that looks perfect in every browser… until you have a page without much content on it. Many people using dummy content on a standard-sized monitor will not notice this issue. Some might even argue that it’s not worth fixing at all… but I think they’re wrong, and just in case you agree, I’m going to show you a simple way to fix it. The Problem: In case you didn’t see the graphic above, or didn’t understand, here it is in a nutshell: When a page contains a large amount of content, the footer is pushed down off the viewport, and if you scroll down, the page ‘ends’ at the footer. Depending on the design, this can look a little amateur, and it’s especially bad on large screens. I’ve even seen people ‘fix’ it with Javascript, finding out the height of the page and pushing the footer down after page load. 8-O Bad times. The Solution: See The Demo How Is It Done?

HTML and CSS Table Border Style Wizard Compatibility Notes If you are using Internet Explorer 6, you should be able to use this wizard with only minor limitations. This page does not work with Opera 8 or IE 5 on Mac. Internet Explorer 6 does not support the border-spacing CSS2 table property. It also does not support any Netscape-specific CSS properties that are prefixed with -moz, and has limited support for the cursor property. This means you will not see all the effects in this wizard unless you use a browser like Firefox. Table Border Style Wizard Welcome to the totally revamped HTML and CSS border style wizard! The style sheet code generated by this wizard shows the easy way to apply a style to a table. The above example doesn't show it, but you can also efficiently alternate the row colors in an HTML table by using inheritance.

In Search of the Holy Grail I’m sorry. Really. I didn’t name it. I don’t mean to overstate its importance or trivialize the other and rather weightier Holy Grails.
