May 2011 Meeting Report:
Reset Wrap-up and Wire Frames Intro

At our May meeting, we finished our review of CSS resets by looking at some specific resets for HTML5 webpages. Eric Meyer addresses HTML5 in his well-known reset file. A couple of other sites to check are HTML5 Reset and HTML5 Doctor.

We then finished by checking four reset files for common elements that we might want to incorporate into our own sites. The outline we used is entitled Review of CSS Resets and is posted in our Samples section.

For more lists of resets, try CSS and A Comprehensive Guide to CSS Resets.

We then moved on to wire frames, which are templates for complicated webpage layouts. We watched a video from a SitePoint CSS class and discussed the basic concept behind wire frames.

Next month, we will cover wire frames in more detail and also look at a new free web editor called Blue Griffon.

May 2011 Meeting Announcement

The next meeting of the PACS CSS Workshop will be this Saturday, May 21, at our usual 9-10 hour.

Last month, we looked at some specifics from the reset files we have been reviewing, and I have a couple of loose ends to cover.

Our next topic is wire frames, and we will get to it this month. We will have a video that introduces us to what they are and how to use them, and then we will look at some examples.

And there is a new free cross-platform website editor that we will look at if we have time.
