Colour Contrast The old Accessibility Evaluation and Repair Tools (AERT) suggested algorithm for determining colour contrast now directs here. The AERT algorithm was never a recommendation, and WCAG 2.0's luminosity contrast algorithm is recommended instead. Success Criterion 1.4.3 of WCAG 2.0 requires the visual presentation of text and images of text has a contrast ratio of at least 4.5:1, except for the following: Large Text: Large-scale text and images of large-scale text have a contrast ratio of at least 3:1; Incidental: Text or images of text that are part of an inactive user interface component, that are pure decoration, that are not visible to anyone, or that are part of a picture that contains significant other visual content, have no contrast requirement.

Use this wizard to experiment with list styles and generate sample CSS style source code. This wizard uses dynamic HTML to change the style of the table in-situ, without loading another page. List Style Notes You can use any list style property for either ordered or unordered lists. Use cascading to apply style properties to sub-levels of the list. For information on dynamically setting styles with Javascript and how the HTML toggle buttons work, please see HTML and CSS Table Border Style Wizard. CSS Image Bullets As you may notice in the wizard, when using images as the bullet, the bullet does not line up to the text in an attractive way. As a work-around, you can properly align bullet images via the background image CSS property. You can see the style sheet and example below.

collection of 40 CSS layouts All layouts use valid markup and CSS, and have been tested successfully on Internet Explorer/win 5.0, 5.5, 6 and beta 2 preview of version 7; Opera 8.5, Firefox 1.5 and Safari 2. Each of the columns could be the longest, and for testing columns length I've used the script filler text on demand. Each layout could represent a site with five main sections: header, content, navigation, other stuff and footer. <div id="container"> <div id="header">Header</div> <div id="wrapper"> <div id="content">Content</div> </div> <div id="navigation">Navigation</div> <div id="extra">Extra stuff</div> <div id="footer">Footer</div> </div> It's almost minimal, apart from an extra wrapper around the content. Talking about CSS: each of the layouts uses float and in most of the cases negative margins. The CSS of the examples, which is embedded in both online and download versions, has been kept to the minimum in order to focus on the most important thing, as is the layout.

Contrast Analyser & Accessibility About the Colour Contrast Analyser This native application (available for both Windows and Mac) allows you to evaluate the color visibility and contrast of foreground/background color combinations. It provides an initial pass/fail assessment against WCAG 2.0 color contrast success criteria. In addition, the Colour Contrast Analyser provides functionality to simulate certain visual conditions such as dichromatic color blindness (protanopia, deuteranopia, tritanopia) and cataracts. Note: the image simulation features are currently not available in the Mac version. Details The Color Contrast Analyser was developed to facilitate the assessment of color combinations against WCAG 2.0: The Colour Contrast Analyser uses the following formula to determine contrast: where R, G and B are defined as: and RsRGB, GsRGB, and BsRGB are defined as: RsRGB = R8bit/255GsRGB = G8bit/255BsRGB = B8bit/255 Versions Windows Mac Acknowledgements Terms of use The Colour Contrast Analyser is freeware.

RGB-to-Hex Conversion RGB-to-Hex Conversion Question: How do I convert RGB values of a color to a hexadecimal string? Answer: The RGB-to-hexadecimal converter algorithm is simple: make sure that your values are in the range 0...255, convert R, G, B to hex strings, and then concatenate the three hex strings together. Convert RGB to Hex color values here: function rgbToHex(R,G,B) {return toHex(R)+toHex(G)+toHex(B)} function toHex(n) { n = parseInt(n,10); if (isNaN(n)) return "00"; n = Math.max(0,Math.min(n,255)); return "0123456789ABCDEF".charAt((n-n%16)/16) + "0123456789ABCDEF".charAt(n%16); } Notes: The script parses the input R, G, B values as integers using the standard function parseInt(string,10); the second, optional argument 10 specifies that the value must be parsed as a decimal number. RGB/hex codes for named colors supported in most browsers are listed below: See also:

The Mystery Of CSS Sprites: Techniques, Tools And Tutorials Advertisement CSS Sprites are not new. In fact, they are a rather well-established technique and have managed to become common practice in Web development. What Are CSS Sprites? The term “sprite” (similar to “spirit,” “goblin,” or “elf”) has its origins in computer graphics, in which it described a graphic object blended with a 2-D or 3-D scene through graphics hardware. Sprites were displayed over a static or dynamic background image, and the positioning of the sprite was controlled simply by the hardware controllers. The Pokemon Sprite Sheet, consisting of over 1000 graphic objects. Time passed, and at the beginning of the 2000s, when progressive Web designers started to seek alternatives to JavaScript-based rollover menus (with onMouseOver and onMouseOut effects), sprites saw a renaissance in Web development. In 2004, Dave Shea suggested a simple CSS-based approach to CSS sprites based on the practice established by those legendary video games. Where Are CSS Sprites Used?
