CSS-Cascading Style Sheets - Some References
And this lite treatment of CSS is partially due to the browser wars - Microsoft added non-standard CSS elements while both Microsoft and Netscape only partly implemented the CSS standards. So only starting with the IE 5 and Netscape6 and Opera 4 browsers are you getting close to the CSS1 standard. But with IE6, Netscape 7 and Opera 5 improvement is quite marked with about 92% of the CSS1 standard and 80% of the CSS2 standard being implemented. Mozilla 1.1 deserves top prize for the most comprehensive implementation of CSS 1 & 2 nearly 95%(see www.meyerweb.com for details). Unfortunately coverage of these events has been quite mixed in web development magazines and adoption of the new browsers has also been mixed despite the fact that the newer browser generally deliver decidedly faster, more reliable, more secure and a richer browser experience with the worst price being an update or download and install.
And on the Web, sites devoted to CSS are are easily outnumbered by those
... yeah right, just like this one. However there are good sites centered
on CSS to be found and here is a list:
1)the newer editions of IE, Mozilla and Opera are much faster and more reliable;
3)this in turn offers faster and more elegant Web pages plus;
4)much enhanced convenience features for bookmarks, history, searching, sidebars and,in the case of Mozilla and Opera, very nifty tabbed or MDI access to web pages.
All the vendors have made updating or downloading very convenient, Mozilla and Opera, by their compact size have also made it very fast. So surfers should update and CSS styled websites will help to provide powerful but elegant and fast web pages.
