I'm a CSS newbie but I threw together something last night and early this
morning. http://thelibraryproject.com/cool.html How does it look on browsers
other than IE 5.5?
(I've been lurking since day 2 but am still way behind in reading. I also
deleted stuff I simply didn't understand at the time. I just came across how
to do the transparent div (without resorting to IE filters) thing posted
about 10 days ago. Duh! I should have figured that out on my own. A case of
not seeing the forest for the trees. ;-))
I have tons of questions! Code and design wise I'd like to be a minimalist.
And please don't cringe when I use the wrong terms. ;-) I don't know the
compelling reasons why I need a style and doc type. The style type is
"text/css" by default... right? Why is it important that the doc type
validate when it works anyway? Validation is not going to help it work with
different browser quirks... right? I don't want to step on any toes or get
the List Chaperone upset so explanations and links can be sent to me
Should properties be in a certain order, other than grouped font values etc?
I read the thread on how everyone like to organize their CSS file overall
but not how the individual properties/values within tags/elements/selectors
(or whatever their called) should be organized. It seems errors would be
easier to spot if there was a method to the madness. Sorry if I missed
something and again reasoning and links can be sent to me privately. ;-)
How important is it to design for 640x480? This particular design isn't
liquid but it looks just as good cropped. I'm looking at a broken box with
IE 5.5, it is well within the margin, so it may be a mess in other browsers.
I don't care about NS 4.7 right now. And should I??
I may care about NS 4.7 when I move my site(s) to my new domain. If I
understand it correctly many libraries still use NS 4.7. I would like to
redesign and get rid of tables if possible. Any suggestions and links would
be greatly appreciated.
