CSS

I’ve never been a big fan of CSS. No real reason, it just seemed like such a PITA. And it is really, let’s be honest.

BUT

I’m working on a site for a client and they want it mostly CSS. More search engine friendly and all. I know enough CSS to fill a shot glass. Prefer other things in my shot glasses, but my CSS knowledge will if needed fit there.

My buddy Tom used one of our co-workers’ books on CSS, and said it had helped him with his immediate need. So.. off to the local B&N I went.

The local B&N actually has a really good section for computer books, I was impressed, and had I not been in a hurry to get back to the house and get working, I woulda stuck around a while.Seeing as I was at a book store I couldn’t come away with just one book, especially if the one ended up not be the one I need. So I picked up the O’Reilly offering on CSS as well. They tend to be pretty good books.

I am well on my way to really digging CSS. It certainly takes some getting used to but it sure is nice once you get going. This site I’m working on is pretty easy to tweak when I need to change a color or nudge something to the left. I’ve really been missing out.

    I was wondering how long until you finally drank the kool-aid!

    You’re loving it now. Wait until you try to pass a three column layout through IE after it works kick ass in everything else. You’ll be tempted to jump back to tables. Try to resist the temptation!

    Oh yea…no matter what you hear, you can ignore Netscape 4.x. Those people really need to upgrade. Oh yea, skip IE on the Mac too. msn.com doesn’t even work with that (and it has fallen out of support if I’m not mistaken)
