Thinking Web (1)

Useful new sites, articles, newbies, tricks, discussions etc. from the world of webdesign, css, xml, information architecture, javascript yada yada, as I come across them.

… on CSS-organisation

Friendly Bit did a serious bit of thinking into the question of How to structure large CSS files. Apart from the indentation part – a very logical way to structure CSS for large projects indeed!

His advice to avoid general rules, handle things with specifics in context (#header ul li a {…} instead of li a {…} or even header a { … }) is the only way to more or less successfully “debug” a complex website!

And sorting the styles in alphabetical order instead of function-related might be a real timesaver if ever somebody foreign to your website has to tinker with its styles.
Other input on this issue:

… on CSS-lookups

Useful Google Coop-powered site for CSS-related issues (search a subset of Google’s web index): Skuer.

… on design tools

25 Essential Firefox Extensions for Professionals. One or two I didn’t know/use. Still find it amazing how this has become such a strength of Firefox, giving it a clear advantage over IE & co for the websavvy crowd.

… on AJAX

Cameron Moll invents a vocabulary for AJAX-effects: Responsive Disclosure, Magnetism, Data Brushing, Latency Reduction … Great to get on the same wavelength as another person you’re talking to, so make this an industry standard!

Link-o-rama (1)

Postcard of the parthenon, in front of the actual parthenonCool Flickr set: landmarks around the world are photographed with representations of the landmarks held at exactly the same spot of the landmarks itselves. Sort of what happens with the landmarks themselves: the icon replaces the real deal. Belgium is represented with the Atomium & Waterloo hill. No sign of our n1 cultural icon Manneken Pis though (via Reddit)

Web Design is 95% Typography, a statement that is at least 75% correct! Kinda sweet that the link, probably the original title of the article, states ” the-web-is-all-about-typography-period”. Not so .period. after all? (via Dzone)

Dove goes on with the crusade in favour of “natural beauty” with this cool commercial showing the power of photo retouching.

Mahir to Borat: I Sue You!

Lifehacker: “Top ten (non-Google) map innovations”. Some cool applications in there!
