If you work on several websites at once (it sometime seems like I am doing this all the time) and/or if you inherit a website's CSS development, it can be tricky to keep a track of your style sheet selectors. Which selectors are used and which have become redundant?
I find it useful to delete redundant style sheet rules because this helps me work more efficiently but I usually find the redundant items by doing a sitewide search in Dreamweaver. This works fine but it can be time-consuming to do this on a large style sheet.
This might just become one of my 'must-have' tools. Great work from brothercake!
We're pleased to announce the launch of a new website for JM Professional Fundraising. The website uses some of the key styling cues from existing promotional material and extends these in a modern CSS-based layout.
It's great to see a website 'completed' but, in this case, I'll be sad to see it go because the project was a pleasure to work on. Everything came together really well, from the website content to the initial layout draft, through to the final product.
Not every project is like this, of course, but I usually try and think of the reasons why a project works well in any specific instance. In this case, one key reason was that the website content was supplied as a comprehensive package by the client, this gave a full picture of what was to be included, and this made the overall layout easier to create.
Last year, I attended d.Construct 2006 in Brighton. It was a great conference and particularly convenient for me because I live in the same county. This year, d.Construct 2007 has expanded into a multi-day event with pre-conference workshops and a larger venue.
The main theme this year is user experience design which will be interesting. It's an area...
About a year ago, we replaced some webpage forms that used tables for layout with CSS-based layouts. Here's the blog post about it, CSS layouts for forms. To cut a long story short, we had some problems but eventually adapted this method to give this form.
Once upon a time, there were rumours that the web would kill off traditional newspaper editions. This has not happened but, over recent years, broadsheet newspaper websites in the UK have started to take the web more and more seriously. This is reflected in their websites which are usually fine examples of how to organise and display a wealth of information and change it on a regular basis. Here's my top three UK newspaper websites.
