Title Attribute for Stylesheet Links

February 27 2008

This is one of those things that I never knew: Correctly Using Titles With External Stylesheets.

Apparently, adding a title attribute to an external stylesheet link makes browsers consider it a preferred stylesheet and will exclude any other externally linked stylesheets. Leaving out the title attribute from the link simply defaults it to persistent status, the default. Interesting because it could conceivably result in styles not getting applied; I imagine that this has come up before or will come up in the future.

Simple Clearing of Floats

March 2 2005

I’ll be damned. It pays off to actually read the weblog feeds I follow. Thanks to this timely link, Simple Clearing of Floats | 456 Berea Street I have a potentially better approach to formatting web forms. It will take some experimenting but by being able to contain floated label elements within a cleared (and semantic) block element (a p for example) then I can better style lines and thus form elements without adding any extraneous markup.

On Print Stylesheets

February 23 2005

I can’t believe how long I went around and around the problem where my printer-specific stylesheet generated only one page in Mozilla Firefox cutting off any content that went beyond. And even though I was looking right at the solution here, Print Stylesheets – css-discuss it still took much too much naval gazing before I realized that I hadn’t applied the position: static property to the main page containers. Much too much time.
