  2. 2. CSS? Cascading Style Sheets CSS is a style sheet language used to determine the formatting of an HTML document. Before we had CSS (and before it was widely adopted) all of this formatting information was embedded directly in the document- either in the form of attributes like width or bgcolor (background color) or in the form of purely presentational tags like font. Combined with the abuse of the table tag to create complicated layouts, the landscape for layout and design on the web was an unmanageable mess. CSS fixed all that (kind of.) Using separate style sheets for an entire site, leveraging semantic markup and identifiers like ids (for unique page elements) and classes (for multiple, like elements) a developer can apply styles across a whole site while updating a single (cacheable) file. 02/08/14
  3. 3. Enter CSS (The timeline) CSS1 December 1996 CSS 2 Became a W3C Recommendation in May 1998 CSS 3 CSS level 3 has been under development since December 15, 2005 02/08/14

  8. 8. Benefits of CSS CSS Helps Your Users…  Exercise greater control over how websites are presented.  Access websites on multiple media platforms: o o o o o Computer monitors Paper Projectors Screen readers for the blind Mobile phones 02/08/14

  10. 10. Liquid Design Principles of Liquid Design  Layout elements are given relative sizes (usually percentages).  The page scales to fit any view port, no matter the resolution, screen size, or text size.  The user does not need to use the horizontal scroll bar. 02/08/14
  11. 11. Liquid Design and Accessibility Liquid design helps your page “degrade gracefully.” The page displays properly even if the user: o Changes text size or screen resolution. o Views the page on an extra large monitor. o Disables style sheets. 02/08/14
  12. 12. CSS Techniques 02/08/14
  13. 13. Style Sheets Each element on a page has a style defined for it. The style is defined by a set of attribute : value pairs. Style attributes can control: Typeface and font properties Background properties Box-related properties List properties 02/08/14
  14. 14. Ways to define styles  Default style: provides values for all element properties, unless you change it. (Note: user can customize browser to change defaults!)  Inline style: style is defined as an attribute of the element in- place. Use this for “one-off” or special styles.  Embedded style sheet: styles defined in the head portion of web page. Use this if you don’t have very many web pages, or for styles that are useful only for the given page.  External style sheet: styles defined in a separate file. Use this to centralize style definitions and provide uniformity across all pages of a web site. 02/08/14
  15. 15. Adding styles to pages 1. Inline CSS  handy, but don’t abuse it because it puts presentation back with the content 02/08/14
  16. 16. Embedded Style Sheet <html> <head> <title>Page with embedded style</title> <style type="text/css"> selector { attribute : value ; attribute : value ... } selector { attribute : value ; attribute : value ... } ... •Style definitions go into a <style> element in document </style> head. </head> •Selector determines what elements the style rule applies to. </html> •Style definitions separated by ; are enclosed in { } 02/08/14
  17. 17. Embedded Style Sheet (cont’d) <html> <head> <title>Page with embedded style</title> <style type="text/css"> selector { attribute : value ; attribute : value ... } selector { attribute : value ; attribute : value ... } ... </style> </head> •The type attribute can only be "text/css". (It is leaving room for future alternative style languages.) ... •Note: CSS is not HTML! </html> 02/08/14
  18. 18. Example <html> <head> <title>Example page with embedded style</title> <style type="text/css"> body { font-family : sans-serif; color : blue; background-color : yellow } h1 { font-style : italic } p { font-size : 14pt } ol { font-size : 12pt; color : red; font-family : serif } </style> Here the selectors are simply tag names. The </head> style rules will apply to elements defined by ... those tags. Result (Example 1) </html> 02/08/14
  19. 19. Adding styles to pages 3. External CSS    easier to read and modify downloaded once for all website pages separates content from presentation – the way to go sample_style.css 02/08/14 sample.html

  22. 22. Inheritance  A descendant is an element that is enclosed (nested) in another, its ancestor. (If it is an immediate descendant, it is a child of the enclosing element, its parent. Elements having the same parent are siblings.)  All descendants of an element inherit its style properties, unless these are overridden by their own style rules.  If two styles could apply to the same element, the one defined by the more specific rule will be used. For instance, an explicit rule is always more specific than an inherited rule. 02/08/14
  23. 23. Inheritance in CSS HTML documents are parsed into a document tree  Example: • used when building CCS rules html body head title meta link h1 u l p li 02/08/14 li li • some properties (e.g. font-family) are inherited from parents if not specified
