Does Dreamweaver 8 still earns a byte on your HD?

37 comments 2005 at 01.58 am posted by Veerle Pieters

While I’ve learned HTML back in the day when there weren’t any WYSIWYG editors yet (1996), I’ve always believed in their added value. I never developed websites entirely in the ‘Design view’ (even not during my table-based period), but I always appreciated the fact that I had the choice to switch between ‘Code view’ and ‘Design view’. During my table-based’ period I used DreamWeaver’s ‘Split view’ a lot, this way I kept an eye on what was happening under the hood. If you select an item in the ‘Design view’, the corresponding code is highlighted, a real time saver if you ask me.

2 level horizontal navigation in CSS with images

53 comments 2005 at 11.49 pm posted by Veerle Pieters

A 2 level horizontal menu is not that difficult to create using CSS. If you keep it all text-based it should be doable once you know the basics. But how about the creation of such menu using images only for the purpose of having the extra graphical freedom?

A CSS styled table

52 comments 2005 at 01.48 am posted by Veerle Pieters

Further to my article about the creation of a CSS calendar the thought crossed my mind to show you an example on how you can style a table using CSS. The data of tables can be boring so all the more reason that we need to attract attention to it and make it as pleasant to read as possible. Presentation and design with some basic accessibility rules in mind is the way to go.

A CSS styled calendar

Many times I’ve been asked how I created my calendar, or asked me if they could use the code etc. That’s why I thought it might be interesting to write an article on how to create such calendar.

Explorer 6 Duplicate Characters Bug

14 comments 2005 at 04.20 am posted by Veerle Pieters

It seems ages ago that I talked about CSS so today is the perfect oppertunity. A weeks back I was working on a website and this bug appeared on one of the pages. Some text characters from the last of the floated elements of my layout were duplicated below the last float. Thing is, I didn’t think it was a CSS bug at first, it was just too weird. It got me really puzzled, no idea what was causing this.

Let’s talk a little about some of the latest projects I’ve worked on. It started all with an update of the company logo, and housestyle together with a new brochure ending up with a new design of the online newsletter and website. Needless to say the website was the most challenging part of all.

Designing a CSS template page for an invoicing system

18 comments 2004 at 12.55 am posted by Veerle Pieters

A recent job of mine was to design a CSS template page for an invoicing system that works entirely in a browser environment. There was one condition: the template should be designed so it works both on Mac and Windows. For Mac, Safari would be used as browser and for Windows (XP) FireFox.
