Weekly Web Design Roundup (7 April 2010)

Thursdays are for working on the company website, but that's OK because it's raining outside and I went to see the stunning cherry blossom in the sun yesterday. Some of these links came up in my search for an elegant CSS Reset/Typography Reset, and the rest are related to the same topic.

Weekly Web Design Roundup (23 February 2010)

Tuesdays are for looking at colors and pretty posts:

Between other work, I've been working on a nameplate site. As there aren't any clients except myself, I've decided to use HTML5 and CSS3 - so it's been an interesting learning experience.

Both new specs are still in flux, and both have their impressive elements, and their rather confusing parts. Hopefully they'll iron out the wrinkles and they'll fulfil their potential. Right now it seems like it could go either way.

Of course, I still want my site to degrade gracefully for older browsers that can't handle HTML5 and CSS3, and dealing with Internet Explorer's (5, 5.5, 6, 7 and 8) weak points and idiosyncracies is always 90% of the battle.. even more so with things like CSS3's transparency and shadow options.

It's almost done now, so it's the home stretch of testing and bug fixing. But in a spare moment I at least had time to update the tomdot twitter background.

Sunday Web Design Roundup 11/22/2009

This Sunday's collection of random links is all related to setting up this blog, security and upgrades. This, plus a cold and a vacation, have meant that setting up the blog has taken a lot longer than 60 minutes.  But once it's all assembled i'll put together a single post with a more streamlined system.
