Web Development: University Template Fundamentals

  • No single div around the footer, it's two.
  • Every layout has a secondary layout page.
  • Only thing we "have to" use by the end of 2010 is the header and footer.
  • Update the relatives links to the browser hack ie style sheets.
  • When updating header image, just change the src. Don't remove and insert.
  • Separate keywords with a space. You cannot have phrases.
  • 960 grid system based on 12 columns of 80 pixels; no padding, no margin
  • reset.css sets a baseline for all browsers because they have different defaults
  • optional regions not used on bare bones
  • Divs are only as big as the content inside them.
  • Don't rewrite the stylesheet, contradict with your own style sheet.
