CSS Property Reference
Wednesday 29 September, 2004 (12:03PM GMT)
A CSS property reference has been added to HTML Dog.
'Bout Bloody Time!
It was over nine months ago that the HTML tag reference was added to the site. At the time, the CSS reference was intended to follow shortly after.
The thing is, putting together these references is about as much fun as reading an especially boring phone book and that's my excuse for taking so long - I just couldn't put myself through the maddening ordeal.
But HTML Dog, a "comprehensive" guide to web standard (X)HTML and CSS, was a little incomplete without the property reference, so I just gritted my teeth, got down and did it.
Level Two, Revision One
The properties belong to the CSS 2.1 standard (properties for aural style sheets are excluded). All of the valid values are listed and examples are thrown in for good measure. There are links to related properties and to the Guide pages, when relevant, for a more detailed explanation of usage. When other properties pop up in the description, they are also cross-linked - a feature that some suggested would improve the HTML reference.
As with the tag reference, the reasons behind writing it were to make a reference that is more digestible than the meaty, often confusing W3C documentation and to provide a more accurate reference than other sources, which tend to be either non-standard or non-very good.
As always, if you've got any suggestions for improvement, please contact me or leave a message here.
