Cascading Style Sheets: Beyond the Basics

A session at Society for Technical Communication SUMMIT 2013

Wednesday 8th May, 2013

8:30am to 9:30am (EST)

You have an idea of what a Cascading Style Sheet does in an HTML page, and how to write basic rules to modify text appearance. But there’s so much more you can do with CSS. This session opens up new CSS techniques you can use immediately, like controlling property inheritance, tweaking the cascade order, and using multiple style sheets. The session will explore dependent, independent, and contextual selectors, and how to use CSS to create your own personalized HTML tags as well as CSS troubleshooting techniques.
