Chapter 2. Racehorse Style: CSS Power Pointers

Chapter 2. Racehorse Style: CSS Power Pointers

Now that Dreamweaver MX 2004 is all snazzed up in its CSS (Cascading Style Sheet) finery, I bet you want to take it strutting around town. This chapter is just the ticket seeing how it is packed with all sorts of cool CSS tricks. Some tips work in older browsers and some do not; the cooler the tip, the more likely it is only for modern browsers such as Internet Explorer 5+, Netscape 6+, and Safari. Keep in mind that it is rare that someone — other than web developers or clients — will see your page in both older browsers and modern ones; typically, the general public uses only one browser or another and will never compare the site between browsers. Don’t drive yourself crazy making everything identical across browsers or platforms. All that really matters is that the site looks acceptable and is fully functional.

You’re on your own to test drive the CSS in the browsers that matter most to you and use them where appropriate. For the most part, we’re not going to worry about what is or is not proprietary CSS or “valid” to CSS standards. My goal is to open you up to the possibilities that CSS has to offer. Although a few of these tips may be ahead of their time and not practical for you now, I’m betting they will prove valuable to you in the future.
