December 2012 Meeting Report

We started this month's meeting with a brief look at Internet Explorer 10, including some points raised by a review at Sitepoint.

Next, we finished viewing the video of Jeremy Keith's lecture on responsive design and progressive enhancement. We looked at an example of progressive enhancement with text layout. CSS multi-columns are not supported in older browsers, but that might not matter if the text is still readable. Users viewing with newer browsers will simply have an enhanced experience.

We then started working on responsive design by looking specifically at styling tables. It is an interesting topic because of the challenge of getting data into a format that fits on a small screen. We looked at a comparison between responsive and non-responsive tables at CSS-Tricks, but we noticed an anomaly in the responsive table. We will delve into that and more next month.
