A demonstration of what can be accomplished visually through CSS–based design. Select any style sheet from the list to load it into this page.
Littering a dark and dreary road lay the past relics of browser–specific tags, incompatible DOMs, and broken CSS support. Today, we must clear the mind of past practices. Web enlightenment has been achieved thanks to the tireless efforts of folk like the W3C, WaSP and the major browser creators.
The UK CSS Users Group is endeavoring to learn CSS more thoroughly. To this end, we will use this page and site as our practice area and playground. The look and layout of this page will change as we test and grow in our skills. We acknowledge and thank CSS Zen Garden for their leadership in modeling good HTML and styling alongside of creativity.
Everyone in the group will have the opportunity to play with the CSS in this site and to contribute their spin on styling this page. You may add to the content and modify the style sheet in any way you wish, but not the HTML. This may seem daunting at first if you’ve never worked this way before, but follow the listed links to learn more, and use the sample files as a guide.
Download the html file and css file to work on a copy locally. We will be using Dreamweaver®, so this will involve checking–in and checking–out the files to and from the server. Once you have completed your masterpiece upload your .css file to this web server. Post to the listserv with the name of your CSS file (and please, don’t submit half–finished work), so that we can all see your handiwork and ask questions and make comments.
You may create as many CSS files as you wish. If you have any questions, contact Renée.
Coming as soon as we can get this going! Patience, please.
