Shimano

If the weather clears, I’m going to try overhauling my bike. New chain purchased, old one off, so lots of scrubbing and cleaning before putting together and seeing if it 1) all still works and 2) I have no ‘spare’ parts :)

I’ve been toying with the idea of doing a semi-new stylesheet. Not new as in design – and if you are actually after a new 2 column design, head over to atthe404 to see the brilliant design by Root – but new as in use every single css tag there can be in a default install. All of them. Make a testblog, have one post that uses everything in it – ol / ul / blockquote etc, have comments too, and then style everything. There is a lot which does not get defined in the default CSS and which inherits style, but that doesn’t need to be the case does it ? Okay, so we are hopefully past the days of 10+ font families per document, but purely as an exercise ?
But the part of me wonders why ……. it would be a neat exercise, it would be a fairly good thing to point people at – assuming they can ‘View Source’, and the CSS and then make the connection, but then for styling sake, it could look a mess. But then that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

I’m due a fairly productive patch soon, so a little project to complete would be cool. Ideas ?

  1. Here’s what I would like to see:

    A style sheet with the following elements:

    1) A header section that is 100% wide.
    2) 3 columns, left hand side, middle, right hand side. Each column width adjustable in the style sheet, and all three columns always adding up to 100% of the screen width.
    3) A footer section that is 100% wide.
    4) Minimal use of padding as different browsers render the HTML output padding differently.
    5) The option to use drop-down boxes for long lists of things; link roles, categories, etc.

    That’s all I can think of right now. :smile:
