March 15, 2008, Meeting Report:
Styling Forms

At the March meeting of the PACS CSS Workshop we worked on techniques for styling forms. We used examples from the book The Art & Science of CSS from Sitepoint: Our emphasis was on keeping good HTML as the foundation of our pages and using techniques to make the forms accessible. We then worked on styling that would make the forms not just visually pleasing but functional as well. It happens that this chapter on forms is available as a PDF download sample from Sitepoint. Go to the webpage for the book and click on the "Download the FREE Sample!" button.

We also had a guest from ReviewNet,, a local company that is looking for beta testers for its CSS skills evaluation program. If you did not get a handout, you can get more information and find out how to apply at

March 15 Meeting Announcement

The next meeting of the PACS CSS Workskhop will be this Saturday, March 15, at 9 am in room 713. Javascript will not be meeting this month, so we will have some extra time to play with.

We will cover the topic of styling forms, which we had intended to do last month before the snow came. We should be able to complete the topic and then have some time for a couple of other subjects, like Macromedia Contribute.

We will also have a guest from a company called ReviewNet Corporation, They are looking for beta testers for their new CSS skills test. It could be a fun opportunity to test ourselves and build a relationship with a local technology company.

See you Saturday.
