Just a few months ago when I created any design, I didn’t practice a grid system. I didn’t know much about it so I thought that I can live without it. Yes it’s true. You can live without a grid system, but should you? Why is the grid important? I will try to answer to all of your questions in this article.
In you read the article about creating simple contact forms than you know what the most web designers will ever need. For those of you who need some advanced forms, this is the article for you. In this article I will not cover many things, because if you know the basics you could combine the knowledge for creating more powerful forms. When you’re done reading this article you will be able to create advanced forms such as registration form. I wanted to show you how to create nice looking form including text inputs, textarea and checkboxes. I will also show you how to group checkboxes and create description text for the text inputs.
Drop down menus are among the coolest things on the web. Beside that they are also very good for creating navigations that contain many elements. The main problems of creating drop down menus lies in the Internet Explorer’s inappropriate way of displaying :hover pseudo class (not recognized anywhere except in A tag), and the problem in calculating the z-index when an element is positioned absolutely inside a relatively positioned element.
Few days ago I was writing about creating vertical navigation using unordered lists and CSS. Now it is time to show you how to create horizontal navigation with the same things. The beauty of CSS is that we don’t need to change anything in the XHTML code of our previous navigation. Although there are no limitations in creating horizontal navigation, in this article I will show you how to create clean and simple horizontal navigation, but without sub-navigation. I will cover sub-navigation in some other article on this topic.
In this article I will explain how to create simple vertical navigation menu with one sub-menu. I suppose there are many explanations of how to create vertical (and horizontal) navigation menus all over the web, but when I was just a beginner I learned to write both XHTML and CSS, but never really understood why I wrote this or that (in CSS file). I will try to help you.
Tables are designed to show tabular data. But they are also good for building contact forms, because of their easy positioning without having to write much CSS. In this article I will show you how to create simple contact form with less code and less CSS and no tables. Is that possible? You’ll find out.
