Dan Cedarholm - Genius.
Dan Cedarholm, CSS guru and advocate, is a genius. I believe I first stumbled across his site while trying the answer the great raisins-in-oatmeal-cookies debate.
I read more CSS/Web Standards stuff and was convinced I must buy his book. It's been well worth the $25.19; way cheaper than taking any course. The proof of his genius:
- DL, DT, DD tag set to keep pictures floated inside a descriptive bit of text. I struggle for the longest time getting the images to behave nicely, and good old fashioned HTML was the answer all along. Behold! Try all you want - the images just can't escape their header and text. Mwa-ha-ha-ha! And it's semantically sound markup.
- Fantastic Tabs built from a list of links look soo classy. You can even add some gradients as background images to give a design more of a "Web 2.0" look. This technique is enhanced and explained in detail in Dan's above-mentioned book.
Dan Cedarholm, thanks for helping me pull my resume out of table-tastic year-2000 design and into the brave new world of all CSS all the time 2006. Non-geek readers: sorry for boring you with the foolishness. Please accept this Thin Mint Recipe.
Also, is it sad if your Animal Crossing character has more skin color that you do?
