You Caught Me. I Cheat at CSS.

| Comments

Yes, CSS is the greatest single advance since electricity itself. A self-respecting web developer would never admit to any deficiency in this core skill. Luckily, I am not that developer. I am sub-awesome at styling pages: box models, margins, browser quirks, quirks mode. Sheesh.

 Instead, I cheat on CSS, and on the user interface in general. I find lots of places to use simple but powerful tools to make good stuff.

One of my favorites is the Web Developer’s Handbook. It’s a huge listing of links to CSS tips and tricks, along with other interface stuff like color palettes and rounded corner generators. It doesn’t have everything, but it’s got a lot. Chances are good they have a link to what I need when I encounter something I don’t know how to do, which is often.
