Andy Clarke

First workshop session at WDS07 Andy Clarke’s ‘Transcending CSS’. Not bad either.

To be honest, I was pleasantly surprised by how little CSS I learned. It tells me I’m at least across the stuff, even if I’m not using it fully in the University environment. And that is the nub of Andy’s message. It’s time we started using it. We can’t very well complain about the shortcomings of CSS if we’re not even using the capabilities we have available.

The biggest thing holding us back? IE6 again! I know I avoid css that doesn’t work in IE6, but it’s now and old browser as well as a buggy one. I for one will be trying to adjust my design-to-code process to take advantage of a few more CSS tricks, who cares if IE6 users miss out?
