CSS Swag: Multi-Column Lists One of the minor holy grails of XHTML and CSS is to produce a single, semantically logical ordered list that wraps into vertical columns. The ideal situation, in my view, would be a single XHTML list whose wrapping is controlled entirely by CSS. Further, the wrapped list should tolerate text resizing (easily accomplished by styling everything in ems). CSS and the browsers that support it don’t yet provide us with “vertical wrap,” so we have to augment basic list markup with additional attributes and styling rules to achieve the effect. I’ll take you there—or as close as we can get using today’s browsers—but along the way let’s look at a variety of ways to accomplish a similar effect.

CSS Layout - 100% height Min-height The #container element of this page has a min-height of 100%. That way, if the content requires more height than the viewport provides, the height of #content forces #container to become longer as well. Possible columns in #content can then be visualised with a background image on #container; divs are not table cells, and you don't need (or want) the fysical elements to create such a visual effect.

In: Columns > Design in Theory and Practice By Joshua David McClurg-Genevese A List Apart: Articles: Sliding Doors of CSS A rarely discussed advantage of CSS is the ability to layer background images, allowing them to slide over each other to create certain effects. CSS2’s current state requires a separate HTML element for each background image. In many cases, typical markup for common interface components has already provided several elements for our use.

Raphael Advertisement Before drawing anything in a browser, ask yourself three questions: Do you need to support older browsers?If the answer is yes, then your only choice is Raphaël.

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.
