Environmental friendly CSS, the series
Anything is recyclable, so is your HTML markup. Claim the right to do it with nature-, eco-, environmental-friendly style sheets! (use whichever buzzword).
Buckle up, ‘cause we are introducing Environmental friendly CSS, a four article series, that aims to shift any novice and CSS expert alike — into ecologically aware client-side developer. The series is based on a real-world web site, developed as we speak.
The first article is expected this Thursday morning CET, and the others over the next three weeks. Here is the series overview:
- Prepare your content and interface copy
- Think about the context, the content, the real users, accessibility and search engines.
- Visually design information elements and user interface
- Go wild in your graphic editor to lead the eyes around the layout.
- Mark it up!
- Create sound and solid markup, with accessibility in mind — without looking into the visual mockup.
- Create bullet-proof, eco-friendly CSS
- Use CSS skills to recycle accessibility-related markup into visually attractive hints.
For all the fans out there: we are going to disclosure Director’s Special at the end of the series.
