Mr. Ploppy’s Monday Morning Tool List Volume XVIII – CSS Tools

Online marketing information can change quickly This article is 15 years and 338 days old, and the facts and opinions contained in it may be out of date.

I really don’t do a lot of coding and development these days, but I certainly used to try. I’ve always been fascinated, however, with CSS and it’s benefits to a web project. The use of CSS seperates design from content and makes life MUCH easier to make design changes. There are some potential SEO benefits with CSS like improving text/code ratio, and smaller overall page size. Graywolf even has a niece piece on the benefits of CSS-P for MSN. The big benefits come with the flexibility that is allowed by seperating the design from the content.

CSS is cleaner code than using convoluted nested tables, and it gets much easier every time you work with it. Yes, it’s tough to get it to work in all browsers at times, but using existing code and tips and tricks helps make that a bit easier. Grab an existing CSS site and start ripping and tearing. I learned CSS by changing existing sites and seeing what broke when I changed something. There’s an even easier way to do this now with an extension that is available in firefox to edit CSS right in the browser window (no link the extension site seemed to be down as I was writing this). Start playing, and use the tools available. It is worth the time after the initial learning curve it will save you time and improve your websites.
