In my previous post, I lamented about Content Management System (CMS). I am still search for the most suited CMS for me.
While doing that, I decided to learn CSS. Currently, the design of my web sites are based on table. It is considered out of date and difficult to maintain. Perhaps CSS is the solution? So, I searched the web for CSS tutorials. Lo and behold. I found a very good tutorial.
I found Selectutorial CSS selector to be the best CSS tutorial. It explains CSS step by step without watering it down. One of the things I like about this is that the author took the time to give a step by step example with a sample output of each step. I could progress from one step to another by reading the description and viewing the result. This is an example of good e-learning! I spent a couple of hours playing with the examples. I hope it's a good investment.
After that, I looked around for CSS examples or templates. I kinda like 3-column layout. All of my web sites are done with 3-column. I did it intentionally, but did not know the reason. (Could somebody tell me why people like 3-column layout? Any scientific reason(s)?) Here is an example of a list of interesting 3-column layout. A List apart is also an excellent source for web design.
Okay, it is time to roll my own CSS. Or ... before doing that, perhaps just "borrow" somebody else's design first and re-layout my web site. (Update: my trial page is here.)
