This is a new one, and pretty cool. The ‘content’ attribute automatically adds code / text / attributes to the start or end of any tag, depending on the pseudo class.
Some CSS effects don’t work in IE, damn them, so that leaves 2 options.
Either forget that you have coded some nice roll-over effects that the majority of people wont see…
…but still not on IE.
This wont pass CSS validation, but its usefull to know that expressions can be added into css.
I have been looking for a ‘simple’ tag cloud generator that will parse content from MySQL for ages and couldn’t find one. So I adapted – and heavily modified (reduced) – and CSS’d – the best one that I could find. It turned out nice and simple.
Use FireFox? Can’t stand the dotted lines around links when you select them? Nope, nor me.
Form fields need to line up. OK. Historically this was achieved using a table, and masses of markup. Although that’s still acceptable and would not fail validation, there is an easier and better way that uses less code and where using the correct tags will also cause the ‘name’ field become focused when you clicked the ‘name’ label.
Using CSS we can achieve this using less code, while providing improved usability.
These are a wicked (and widely underused) way to wrap similar actions together with a nice little header.
When I first saw them in use I tried to recreate them using CSS, a background image, overlapping layers… Wooaah – Cool Head!! Noah was using these…
CSS makes repetitive tagging easier, so start out with something simple that will save time – Formatting Text – but do it properly and use ‘ems’.
The perfect place to start – a centrally aligned ‘wrapper’.
You must have the DTD (Document Type Definition) declared for this to work.
