All There Is To Know About HTML5 and CSS3

HTML5 has definitely become a trend alongside its lil’ brother CSS3 because of their functions and utilities which makes them the next best thing in web design. Better even than Flash, maybe, in some situations. Being the next best thing will not determine you to use it, but the fact that it introduces and enhances a wide range of features including form controls, APIs, multimedia, structure, and semantics will do. The most important thing for you to know is that you can’t learn it just by reading, you have to work with it, step by step, using these new techniques from the tutorials that I’m bringing you here and by the time HTML5 and CSS3 properties will be supported on every browser you’ll be a rockstar coder.

10 Things CSS3 and HTML5 will teach us
While we are all squirming in our seats waiting for the official release and support of HTML5 and CSS3, I’d thought I’d share with you some interesting things about both. We can all look at a boring list of the features of both, but they don’t really tell us how front end development is going to change. Although I’m super excited about how much easier it’s going to make my coding, I’m also somewhat nervous as there’s going to be a HUGE learning curve (especially for CSS3), even if it’s just to our coding habits. Here are 10 great things that both CSS3 and HTML5 are going to teach us very soon.

html5test.com
The HTML5 test score is only an indication of how well your browser supports the upcoming HTML5 standard. It does not try to test all of the new features offered by HTML5, nor does it try to test the functionality of each feature it does detect. Despite these shortcomings we hope that by quantifying the level of support users and web developers will get an idea of how hard the browser manufacturers work on improving their browsers and the web as a development platform.

css3.info
CSS3 is the new kid in the stylesheet family. It offers exciting new possibilities to create an impact with your designs, allows you to use more diverse style sheets for a variety of occasions and lots more.

But, also when the creative side is very important for a work, there exists a logical (and technical) part in all creative process.

Editable CSS3 Image Gallery
We build a pretty typical image gallery design pattern, a grid of images that pop up larger when clicked. But this image gallery page makes use of hot semantic HTML5 markup, loads of visual treats with CSS3 and jQuery, and made editable through the CMS PageLime. Quick reminder, the demo is awesome-est in a WebKit browser (Safari or Chrome).

The problem is that many browsers—most notably Internet Explorer—have not.

Pushing Your Buttons With Practical CSS3
CSS3 is the partially implemented sequel to the CSS2 spec we all know and love. It’s already popping up in new browsers such as Firefox 3.5, Safari 4 and Chrome. In this article, the first of the articles that explore practical (and even far-fetched) implementation of CSS3, we start by applying CSS3 to something we all have to create: buttons.

Calls to action are critical for any website, and a compelling, attention-grabbing, clickable button goes a long way toward driving that engagement. In the past, really awesome buttons needed extra markup, sliding doors or other trickery. We’ll show you here how to create nice button styles without any hacks or cheats

CSS3 can do some seriously neat stuff. Just check out some of the crazy 3D stuff you can do in WebKit. But as we all know, we need to be careful with what we choose to do with it. The most cutting edge techniques are fun to play with, but since since only a sliver of browsers support them fully, we can only use them in circumstances where they fall back to otherwise perfectly acceptable styling. Let’s look at a couple of quick, simple, cheezy examples.

Quick Tip: Understanding CSS3 Gradients
Creating an image only for the purpose of displaying a gradient is inflexible, and is quickly becoming a bad practice. Unfortunately, at the time of this writing, they very well might still be required, but hopefully not for much longer.

Object-Oriented CSS: What, How, and Why
It sounds like an oxymoron, or at least an impossibility, doesn’t it? How can a static language that’s really more like markup than programming be object-oriented? In this tutorial, I’m going to introduce you to the idea of object-oriented CSS, show you how it works, and try to convince you that you should be using it too!

A Crash-Course in Advanced CSS3 Effects
Webkit is one of the few – if only – browser engines that really embraces advanced CSS3 effects. Unfortunately, this presents somewhat of a double-edged sword. We get to play with all of these amazing effects – such as CSS masks, reflections, transitions, animations, scaling, etc. – yet, we can’t truly implement them into our projects until more browsers provide support. With all of that said, it’s important to be on the cutting edge of what’s possible.

Stronger, Better, Faster Design with CSS3
In this second article we’re going to focus on using those CSS techniques (and a little JavaScript) to create some practical elements and layouts. As before, caveat coder — a lot of the CSS properties we’re going to use have limited support, if any, in IE6/7 and probably 8. Firefox 3.5+ and Safari 4 are your best bet right now to see all the cool stuff going on in CSS right now (Chrome does a pretty good job, too).

Take Your Design To The Next Level With CSS3
It’s time to introduce CSS3 features into our projects and not be afraid to gradually incorporate CSS3 properties and selectors in our style sheets. Making our clients aware of the advantages of CSS3 (and letting older deprecated browsers fade away) is in our power, and we should act on it, especially if it means making websites more flexible and reducing development and maintenance costs.

In this article, we’ll look at the advantages of CSS3 and some examples of how Web designers are already using it. By the end, we’ll know a bit of what to expect from CSS3 and how we can use its new features in our projects.

Many of you have probably heard all the buzz around CSS3, but exactly which techniques can we use today? In this article I’ll show you some different CSS3 techniques that work great in some of the leading browsers (i.e. Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera ), and how they will degrade well in the non-supported browsers (i.e. Internet Explorer). Using browser specific extensions, many of the proposed CSS3 styles can be used today!

The hidden power of border-radius
So hopefully after reading – Understanding CSS – Padding, Positioning and CSS3 – you understand the basics of CSS and have been experimenting with other properties. It is important to remember that some properties will allow you to achieve effects that aren’t necessarily stated.

It also has the potential to produce some terrific designs using just CSS – no images.

CSS3 features are making their way into the various browsers and while many are holding off on implementing them, there are those who are venturing ahead and likely running into a world of interesting quirks across the various platforms.

Two such features that I have been having the pleasure of enjoying are the use of multiple backgrounds and CSS gradients. I’m covering both features because multiple backgrounds by itself is simple enough, as are CSS gradients, but combining the two is where things get interesting.

The Mysterious Pseudo Class in CSS
The Mysterious Pseudo Class in CSS
Pseudo classes are those things with colons in them, you know, like :hover or :link. They let you control the CSS of stuff in different forms, states and places easily and efficiently, without taking up too much room. CSS3 is going to introduce a ton of new pseudo classes, and they’re going to make our lives a lot easier (if you take browser compatibility out of the equation). They help both aesthetics and usability, and can make things that were once hard easier than ever before.

Now the 147 color names also include the 17 standard color names. All 147 color names where taken from the X Windows Systems, X color names, which has been in use for many and I mean many years.
