Part II: Design and Conquer > Get Splashy: Style Sheets, Fonts, and Special Cha...

Chapter 10. Get Splashy: Style Sheets, Fonts, and Special Characters

IN THIS CHAPTER

  • The basics of creating style sheets (including the theory behind them)

  • The building blocks of style sheets (including <style>, <span>, and <div>), as well as a discussion of linking versus embedding style sheets

  • Creating new classes and adding inline style attributes to other HTML elements

  • The various properties and styles you can render using style sheets

  • Adding special characters and symbols to your document’s text

HTML, in its most ideal form, is application-neutral. Pages created in HTML (and even more so in XHTML) should render as completely and informatively on a cell phone’s display or a palm-held computer as they do in a full-fledged graphical browser application on a Windows or Macintosh computer. As mentioned in previous chapters, this is done by separating the styling of a page from the content and organization of that page. This chapter discusses that styling, and also touches on the less ideal ways that you can style your page—the transitional options.
