To some degree, the popularity of the concept of responsive web design is well deserved because site users are increasingly diversifying their methods of accessing a website. iPad, iPhone, Android mobile devices, desktops, netbooks — we’re in a time where our web designs must function in a multitude number of ways.

Some CSS Generated Content tricks

07-03-2011

I’ve become obsessed with generated content lately. In an effort to use fewer and fewer images, I’ve started to use generated content more since more browsers support it (IE8+, FF3+, Safari 4+, Chrome 4+). The following are a couple of examples I have built for a project to streamline my pages.My New Best Friend: CSS Generated Content | Viget Inspire

Improve WordPress TwentyTen theme with HTML5 and JavaScript

22-02-2011

In a recent survey by Chris Coyier over at CSS-Tricks, almost two thirds of respondents said they would not use HTML5 in new projects. In a similar survey by Smashing Magazine the results were almost identical: only 37% of voters said they use HTML5. This is depressing reading. Perhaps developers and designers are scared off by cross-browser incompatibility and the chore of learning new mark-up. The truth is that with a pinch of JavaScript, HTML5 can be used safely today across all browsers, back to IE6. Using HTML5 To Transform WordPress’ TwentyTen Theme – Smashing Magazine

Reduce time spent on feature detection

02-02-2011

Ok, I’ll go first: feature testing is motivated by a desire not to be busted, particularly in the face of new versions of UA’s which will (hopefully) improve standards support and reduce the need for hacks in the first place. Sensible enough. Why should users wait for a new version of your library just ’cause a new browser was released or because you didn’t test on some version of something. Cutting The Interrogation Short | Infrequently Noted

It does make sense that if you already know what a browser is capable of you stop trying to detect every single feature and only do that when you don’t know what browser is being used.

WordPress plugin to convert a post to PDF

21-01-2011

The plugin provides two modes to create PDF files. The first mode is the email mode. In that mode each box has a field in which a visitor has to enter an email address to which the created PDF will be sent. The second mode is the direct download mode. No email address is needed in that mode. Each PDF box or each PDF link creates the PDF directly and the user has to download the created PDF. WordPress › PDF24 Article To PDF « WordPress Plugins

Bordes en la página usando CSS

En el sitio de John Hicks pueden ver un borde alrededor de la página. Este borde es independiente del ancho de la página y no se mueve si uno se desplaza. Está hecho usando etiquetas <b> alrededor. Pero para Harry Roberts esto es muy poco semántico así que decidió desarrollar una solución para colocar bordes en la página usando solo CSS, sin añadir etiquetas extra al HTML.
