Getting started with CSS

When introducing developers to XPages as I did yesterday the question on where to learn (more) about CSS always comes up. Therefore I was happy to see an article this morning in the developerWorks newsletter. The article is titled “Get started with CSS” and gives a good introduction to syntax and how to use and write CSS. Highly recommended article.

  1. I started to read, and felt that the author over simplified or is just plain wrong about the meaning of cascade which made me stop and check.  The definition at Wikipedia is pretty clear:

    "CSS specifies a priority scheme to determine which style rules apply if more than one rule matches against a particular element. In this so-called cascade, priorities or weights are calculated and assigned to rules, so that the results are predictable."

    I’m not sure if that the rest of the article is better than the start.


  2. Agreed but if you put yourself in the shoes of someone who doesn’t know CSS at all I still think it’s a good introduction to the subject. The article nicely introduces the reader to reason, usage, syntax etc.
