Friday Feast #8: CSS, Search Engines, and Wireless
Today’s Friday Feast has links to some helpful new tips for print and CSS, two new articles by search engine expert Danny Sullivan, and great innovations in wireless development.
By the way, if you know of some good sites, please let me know and I’d love to post them for an upcoming Friday Feast.
Here are two new articles on helping you get the handle on CSS and printable pages. They’re both helpful in their own ways.
- CSS Beyond the Browser
by Eric Meyer for this week’s A List Apart. Great help with using CSS for creating a printable version of your webpage without having to actually create a separately formatted page. He also helps with browser quirks, font sizing, background issues, and more. See also the forum for this article.
- Printing with style
by Lachlan Cannon (luminosity) for evolt.org. Big help for working with CSS for printable webpages.
