Handcrafted CSS: Bulletproof Essentials, Online Video

Being a good Web craftsman is about always asking questions: How flexible are your designs? What happens when the user adjusts the text size? What if one paragraph turns into two? What happens when you turn off images or styles? Does the design fall apart, or can it adapt to worst-case scenarios? It’s attention to details like these that sets good Web design apart from great Web design, and it is what author Dan Cederholm illustrates in this video, which complements his book Handcrafted CSS: More Bulletproof Web Design. Whether you’re a Web designer, project manager, or graphic designer, you’ll come away from this video armed with an essential checklist to make your next project a flexible, adaptable, and well-crafted design.

Dan’s bulletproof guidelines include:

• Testing the integrity of your site with images turned off
• Using relative units for sizing text so users can adjust as needed
• Taking the Dig Dug text test
• Applying advanced CSS properties that work in browsers today
• Reusing styles to keep code efficient
• Mastering floats to create independent modules
• Checking your pages with CSS turned off
• Validating to eliminate baffling display issue
