In Creating an Online Resume: Hands-On Training, interactive design professor and enthusiastic educator Laurie Burruss teaches how to produce an online resume—and create a first web site in the process. Laurie suggests structure and information needed to create a winning resume, and shows how to design the pages with simple typographic principles and effective layouts. She explains how to use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and control the design and structure of HTML documents through hands-on development. Exercise files with additional supporting materials accompany the course.
From time to time as you design, check the vertical spacing. Remember the browser has its own style sheets and each formatted element is a box with padding and margins. Beginners often have trouble controlling the vertical spacing and it's necessary to check frequently. Let's double-click on the Wrapper style right now to edit it, and the first thing that I want to do is go into the Box category. I don't want the page to be butted right up to the viewport window top and bottom. I'd like it to be more page-like.
So what I'm going to do is come over here to the top, and move it away 25 pixels from the top of the viewport. Click Apply. And then come down to the bottom, and make it slightly larger just like you would if you're doing a mat for a painting or a drawing, and click Apply. Now I'll click OK. If I scroll through the page right now, you see I've now moved it away from the top of the browser, and from the bottom of the browser viewport window. By clicking on Preview in Browser window, and choosing Firefox, we can see that it looks very page like now, and it's kind of floating over this background.
Another thing when you're almost done like this, it's a good idea to go ahead and look at it in another browser, even on another operating system. Sometimes when I'm checking I'll check up into five or six different versions of browsers and both of the operating systems. So you feel comfortable to know that it's also working in IE 7.
