In CSS3 First Look, staff author James Williamson provides an in-depth introduction to the newest CSS standard, detailing its modular format, history, and current level of browser support, while also demonstrating its capabilities and applications. The course includes tutorials on using new selectors, modifying typography and color, working with the box model, and understanding media queries. Exercise files accompany the course.
If you are a premium subscriber to lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files that accompany this course. To use the exercise files, download them and place them in a central location on your local computer. I recommend copying the files to the desktop, as this makes them easy to find and easy to clean up after you're done with the title. The Exercise Files are organized in folders, representing chapters and movie numbers. At the beginning of each movie, you should see an overlay on the screen showing you the location of the files for that particular exercise.
Each folder contains a folder entitled Finished Files. If you want to check your work against the finished version of the file, you can find them in this folder. I also want to mention that this title doesn't require the use of one HTML editor over another. So you're welcome to use any of the authoring tools that you're comfortable with. I use Dreamweaver CS5 in this video for several reasons. Now first, I am comfortable with the coding environment. And second, at the time of this recording Adobe has released a CSS3 support extension that offers more coding support than most editors.
In the end, you'll notice that all exercises are hand coded and that we don't use any of Dreamweaver's visual design tools. You can reproduce these exercises using any HTML or text editor that you're familiar with. You will also notice that I routinely test example files in multiple browsers. As emerging technology, CSS3 is not evenly supported among browsers yet. For this title I'm using Firefox 3.6, Chrome 6.0, Safari 5.02, and Opera 10.6.
If your browser versions differ, you may experience different results when testing your files.
