some useful tools to have

Postby mapleleaf » Fri Mar 18, 2011 11:03 am


Here are a couple of useful tools to have in designing web sites particularly if you are or have been considering html5
Note: they all work better in FF

1. HSL color picker

2. CSS3 generator

3. CSS wrap << this I like very much

Thanks, glad you like it. Here is a shot of it being used. It did take a bit of time to get the hang of it.

I have been toying with the wrap and using it on my web site; still thinking about it.
There is one problem namely IE as it works well in FF, Opera, Safari, Google and Maxthon.

So, as a solution against IE I had to do the following:
Code: Select all
<!--[if lt IE9]>
            <script>
                    location.href='design.html';
                </script>
              <![endif]-->


This essentially tells IE go to the old page before I applied the wrap but I am not sure IF this is a good solution or not.

I do however, see plenty of possibilities in the use of wrap in web design.
