CSS 102

A CSS introduction for designers – part 2

This is the second in a series of short CSS courses for designers and other non-programmers.  These are presented as part of the GTA Mac Users Group. The classes consist of a handout, presentation, demo and questions and answers. These classes are directed toward designers who may need to use CSS occasionally and to those who wish to get started with CSS, no programming experience is required.

The second  class was part of June 2013 meeting and provided an overview of the following topics:

  • reviewed CSS101
  • Styling text:  font, color, etc
  • Layout: display, padding, margins, height, width, position and floats

Coming up

 Next month’s meeting on Thursday September 12 will continue where we left off. I will be discussing some of the more popular CSS3 styles.  These are revolutionizing the appearance of the web with improved font support, and effects like rounded corners, gradients and drop shadows that used to require images and PhotoShop to achieve. As IE6 finally goes to the scrapyard of history these are becoming safe to use.
