Guide to CSS

Map through the forest


Dustin Diaz:
"OK. Let's set the record straight. There is no official guide for each and every CSS shorthand property value. So let's work together and put one together shall we?

OK. Straight to the business. Anytime I've ran into a specification (besides the confusing mess at the W3C), it turns into showing off a couple of examples and you're supposed to be set on your way.

Well well. Over the years, I've found quite some interesting unknown quirky facts about these shorthands. . . hence this Guide was born."

How your blog will get discovered

Here are some references to Web Logs

MSDN Magazine:

"Q - What is blogging all about?

A - First, "blog" is short for Web log. It's a medium in which an author writes a journal-style Web site with provisions for readers to respond. These Web logs are becoming quite valuable in the software community for sharing ideas."

W3C Validation

Standards



Web pages are written in a language called Hyper Text Markup Language; HTML
The latest version of HTML is 5.

There is a move to upgrade the code to Extensible Hyper Text Markup Language.

XHTML is compatible with XML (EXtensible Markup Language) allowing applications to more easily exchange data.

In preparation for making the change, edit your web pages so that element and attribute names are in lower case. XHTML is case-sensitive.

Use <p> rather than <P>.

Also end tags are required. Make sure that <p> is followed by </p>.

<br> should be written <br /> and <hr> as <hr />.

For more information see:

The W3C validation site
