March 2010 Meeting Report:
Background Images and CSS3

At the March meeting, we followed up on our topic from February, showing how to clickable image using CSS and not putting the image into the HTML. We then took a second image and used it as the hover background image.

We spent the second half of the meeting looking at some of the new features that will be part of CSS3. The sites we looked at are listed here:

March 2010 Meeting Announcement

The next meeting of the PACS CSS Workshop will be this Saturday, March 20, at the usual 9 - 10 am hour.

We have two things I hope to cover this month. One is to look at background images using the example from last month and expanding on it, including using different images for link and rollover. That last topic will lead toward a discussion of the CSS sprite.

But we might not get to sprites because I also want to look at some examples of CSS3 properties because browsers are starting to incorporate CSS 3, even though it is not yet adopted as a standard.
