Good information is where its at. Filtering out that information can be a little time consuming lest you know where to go so I just wanted to share what I thought would be useful to designers out there.
If you check slide # 51 in Object Oriented CSS you will see that you should never specify an element first. This is a practice i didn’t know about. Sometimes learning yourself can lead into bad practices and thats why I like to learn from the pros. Thanks Stubbornella..
These days i am spending alot of time learning the Open Source MVC Framework: CodeIgniter. It’s awesome using some of the classes and libraries that ship with the package.
All you have to do is load them from your controller or use the autoload feature in the config file. I still do love my design work, so i spent some time later on at night trying to figure out this CSS FullScreen bacground thang.
