Well hopefully this is going to be one of my last weekly round-ups. In my redesign, I am going to have an area made especially for asides where I can just post a link and a little description. The problem is just finding time to finish my design. So here are the links I enjoyed in the past week:
- Be Kind to the Color Blind
Chris Campbell, who has a color vision deficiency, shares techniques to make sure that your designs are still effective to those who have vision issues with color.
- Everything You Know About CSS Is Wrong
Rachel Andrew’s discusses how we will be able to utilize the table value of the display property to make layout much easier.
- A List Apart: Issue 270
Aaron Gustafson discusses Progressive Enhancement with CSS and the A List Apart readers provide some tips from working from home. I’m not sure I agree with Aaron’s technique of using multiple stylesheets. I think using just one makes it easier to manage, but to each his own.
- Creating Custom Listings with Expression Engine, Part II
I have been trying to learn as much about EE as possible, and this tutorial definitely give some insight on how to customize it and utilize its power.
- On the Subject of Design
This is just a simple list of design books that Jason recommends, but I just love the way he lays things out.
- Upgrading our RSS feeds
The Guardian becomes the first major newspaper to provide full RSS feeds. According to my poll from last week, this makes sense.
- Relative readability
Wilson Miner discusses why 16 pixels is the most readable font size to use on the web.
- Is CSS3 RGBa ready to rock? (screencast)
Andy Clarke talks about Dan Cederholm’s talk at An Event Apart Chicago on RGBa. I had never really heard of it until Dan talked about it, but it sounds really promising.
