CSS Tools: Reset CSS

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. I don't particularly recommend that you just use this in its unaltered state in your own projects. 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!

Tools A collection of tools, plugins, and other hacks that I've put together. In most cases, these are solutions to problems I faced, or else enhancements I wanted but couldn't find elsewhere. If they're useful to you, great! #133: Figuring Out Responsive Images I'm probably a bit rare in that I rather enjoyed trying to keep up on the responsive images thing. It's an interesting problem that bred lots of interesting solutions. The whole thing is starting to wrap up now though, now that the official solutions are: 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. Which one to choose? Why choose one over the other?

13 Excellent Tools and Systems for CSS Grid Based Layouts A good grid can be a strong foundation for any design. Using grids got its start in print design, but has made it’s way over to the web. There are several advantages to using grids in web design, but primarily they help achieve structure and consistency in layouts. If you have yet to start using grids in your web design projects, but want to get started…we’re here to help. In this post, we’ve rounded up 13 excellent tools and systems for CSS grid based layouts. #grid Perfect Full Page Background Image This post was originally published on August 21, 2009 and is now being being republished as it has been entirely revised. Both original methods are removed and now replaced by four new methods. The goal here is a background image on a website that covers the entire browser window at all times. Let's put some specifics on it: Fills entire page with image, no white spaceScales image as neededRetains image proportions (aspect ratio)Image is centered on pageDoes not cause scrollbarsAs cross-browser compatible as possibleIsn't some fancy shenanigans like Flash

Furniture Design Adapts to Technology Dressed in yellow pants and unlaced white sneakers, he stood in a smartly furnished room of an upscale town house in Manhattan, jubilantly addressing a small crowd. “What’s the future of design?” he asked rhetorically. “There is no future. When the product becomes bionic, in the end there is no product.”

Paper.js - Paper.js Standing on the shoulders of Scriptographer and making use of HTML5 standards, Paper.js is a comprehensive open source vector graphics scripting framework. Document Object Model Paper.js provides a Document Object Model (also called a Scene Graph) that is very easy to work with. Browser Sandbox - Spoon.net The Spoon.net Browser Sandbox makes cross-browser testing and backwards compatibility easy. Just click Run for any browser to launch it instantly. Browsers run within an isolated virtual environment, eliminating the need for installs and allowing legacy browsers such as Internet Explorer 6 to run on Windows 7 and 8. Virtualized browsers behave exactly like installed browsers. And because they run locally, you can test web applications hosted on your own development machine or on internal servers.

HTML Entities Examples n/a: code not found or existing...yet. If the code result is the same as the code, the character/entity is not supported...yet.Derivation and Printing Notes. Return to Top of page. Derivation Notes:HTML entities derived from ISO 8879:1986/ENTITIES added Latin 1//EN.ISO characters derived from ISO 8859/1 8-bit single-byte coded graphic character set.This is not the complete set: this table mainly shows those not normally found on a keyboard, or those needed to show examples of coding without having a browser interpret the code.Not all characters or entities are supported by HTML specifications, not all browsers support all characters or entities, and there are some that are browser specific (extensions).

Fonts 15.1 Introduction Setting font properties will be among the most common uses of style sheets. Unfortunately, there exists no well-defined and universally accepted taxonomy for classifying fonts, and terms that apply to one font family may not be appropriate for others. E.g., 'italic' is commonly used to label slanted text, but slanted text may also be labeled as being Oblique, Slanted, Incline, Cursive or Kursiv. Therefore it is not a simple problem to map typical font selection properties to a specific font. 15.2 Font matching algorithm

An HTML 5 Code Editor that Lives in the Cloud Nearly everything can be stored and accessed in the cloud. But until now, an HTML coding editor has not been on that list. In an effort to increase the use of open web technology, Mozilla Labs, innovators of a variety of web technologies, has released an open web HTML editor framework. With a nerdy name straight from Star Wars, Bespin hopes to be a quick, collaborative, easy-to-use web based editing option for developers. The prototype released aims to allow for increased productivity and collaboration in a lightweight, fast, open source web-based framework for code editing.
