CSS Cascading Style Sheets for Web Design

June 7 , 2008 6 comments

Once upon a time…

Christopher Schmitt asked me to write a chapter in the CSS book he was trying to complete. I was honored and terrified. Why? Well to be honest I’ve only coded my site. I’ve never come up with a hack, or anything to that level. I’m a designer, an illustrator, my strength is in design not in code. The way I learned was by reading about it and having the two best tutors for CSS my internet world has ever known, Veerle and Geert. Chris assured me that was fine and that I could what was existing in the world and explain how I used things that people have created for my own purposes ::cue scary music::: Bwhahahahaha. :) Hopefully you will like it too. :D

My first book chapter is in my hands :D

Well but its the fact that you are not the average hacker that makes it interesting. The designers view on CSS and web programming is in some respect much more interesting than the hackers.  You see things from a different angle, and that is interesting. My site lol videos may no be the best example of what a hacker can achive, but… Anyway, fun, gonna have a look at the book!
