Friday, I had the opportunity to present a program on CSS at the Eastern Great Lakes Innovative Users Group meeting. We get a lot of clues on how to code a document and code “cookbooks” are great for a quick fix.
But how much do we really know about how the cascade really works? How do we troubleshoot the font that appears to shrink on the screen? What kinds of tools are available for determining inheritance features?
These were the kinds of things that I covered in the presentation “CSS: Beyond the Code.” If you are interested in troubleshooting tools that you can use in Firefox, check out Janet Stewart’s presentation that preceded mine called “The Web Developer’s Best Friend: Firefox Extensions.” I’ve also created a page that includes the links from the presentation in case you’re interested.
