April 22 Meeting Announcement

The next meeting of the PACS CSS Workshop will be this Saturday, April 22, at the usual 9-10 hour. We are meeting on the fourth Saturday this month due to the school's schedule. I hope everyone used the extra weekend to get their taxes done.

This month we will start with a question that came up last month--can CSS be used to alter the transparency of an image? There is an answer, and we will have it.

Then we will continue discussing the display: property. We started last month by discussing display:none (which is what got us into images). This month, we will look at three other display: values, and this discussion will lead us into designing navigation styles.

We will also have a giveaway courtesy of member Frank Stepanski: A copy of the book Designing CSS Web Pages.

Also, if you are not yet aware, Reed has opened a forum on the Web Design site. A number of members have registered already, and it should be a good resource for sharing information and for getting advice. We have a discussion going on now about how to redesign the PACS website. Your participation would be welcome.
