CSS Style Guide


This Style Guide explains the markup and design requirements for web projects, along with various standards and best practices.

projects authored in valid XHTML 1.0 Transitional and styled with valid Cascading Style Sheets will be described here. See the XHTML and CSS sections below for details. Additional sections of this Style Guide, coming soon, will provide information on writing for the web, naming and filing your documents, and other useful topics and guidelines.

XHTML: Guidelines & Benefits

Page authors should follow accessibility guidelines in compliance with U.S. Law, and so that our site’s content will be made available to the widest possible number of people, browsers, and Internet devices. In addition, all XHTML must validate.

7.5.4. Padding: Known Issues

In the first place, padding and Navigator 4.x just plain don't getalong. The main problem is that you can set padding on an element BIG {font-size: 200%;}<P>This paragraph has a line-height of 1.5 times its font-size. In addition,any elements within it <SMALL>such as this small element</SMALL> also haveline-heights 1.5 time their font-size... and that includes <BIG>this bigelement right here</BIG>. By using a scaling factor, line-heights scaleto match the font-size of any element.</P>

In this example, the line-height for theSMALL element turns out to be12px , and for the BIG element, style them without having to change the HTML markup on each page.

Let's assume we have a table of links like this one:

<TD><A HREF="home.html">Home Page</A></TD>
<TD><A HREF="read.html">My Writing</A></TD>

First, let's create the two columns. Remember, we don't wantto use tables or proprietary tags such asMULTICOL, so we'll have to resort tosomething else. In this case, since each column has a number of

  • You can use the DOM parser to generate the XML for you if you created an object model that is an adapter on top of DOM. Since your object model uses the document object tree, all the information contained in it is actually stored in the tree. The XML parser can take this tree and convert it to XML for you, you can then save this generated XML to a file. So the DOM parser can generate the ApplicationML file for you.
  • There are advantages and disadvantages to using some of the strategies to import and export XML. The complexity of your application data and available system resources are factors that would determine what strategy should be used.
