Cascading Style Sheets

The following screen shot is how I setup my Cascading Style Sheet in my original I.T. Minor Portfolio that can be found at http://www.ualr.edu/slcrump/portfolio/index.html

Above on the left hand side is the viewable part of my “screen.css” file in Adobe Dreamweaver.  Screen refers to the method of viewing in this case it is the monitor or screen of the computer or laptop that is being used to view my portfolio.  That isn’t to say that as technology progresses this won’t be viewable to other newer devices, but it’s what we use now predominantly.

The Cascading Style Sheet (.css) has a body, container, skipto, header, header h1a, content, content p, content h2, content h3, content h4, content ol, content ul, content table, navigation, and footer areas.

I owe Professor Thomas Wallace a sincere Thank You for teaching us how to reset the default displays across browsers with a simple trick:
* {
margin: 0px;
padding: 0px;
}
Brilliant, isn’t it.  The simplicity of it is so beautiful and yet it is so effective.

I learned a lot about Cascading Style Sheets from Professor Thomas Wallace, he goes into more detail about this on his webpage which can be found at:
