I say control, but it’s basically a group of radio buttons or checkboxes grouped in a fieldset with a legend – not Tom Cruise in Ridley Scott’s Legend. The real magic happens with CSS. This CSS magic only works in modern browsers. Oldskool browsers like IE8 and below are immune to quality, so instead, you get a bog basic group of inputs. Progressive enhancement in action.
So, so many times I see this same mistake being made with form controls. I guess it may be a case of people just copying the idea, but please don’t do this and group your form controls where appropriate.
So I was a bit bored and decided to make another page of the internet. This one specifically is for links to various web design/development blogs and magazines I use. It also includes links to online tools I use and galleries for inspiration during my working week. There a lot more items I could put on it, but this is what I’m going with for now. Just a simple thing I made.
Have a look at the stuff I read if you think you’re interested enough.
I stumbled across a post by John Rohan on creating triangles in CSS and thought it would be useful for using in CSS only breadcrumbs. Basically borders are drawn by browsers at angles and you can use this to your advantage to draw triangles.
