    Buongiorno from 10 degree c sunny wetherby Uk :-)

    I'm going back to the drawaing board with CSS by making sure I understand (or try too) the critical fundamentals of the language. Apart from the Box model what other css principles are worth grasping before meddling with code?

    Grazie tanto,

    All of them.

    I recommend you get a good book that takes yo through the language so that you get a decent grounding in all of it.

    The key principles that I would recommend getting your head round are:
    • inheritance, cascading and descendent selectors
    • specificity and priority
    • different types of positioning (absolute, relative, fixed, float, static)
    • shortcuts for multiple properties (like border, font, margin)
    • differences between normal screen, mobile and print.


    How's that to be going on with?
