Website of the Week

Showcasing some inspirational designs is this week’s Website of the Week: css Zen Garden.

The aim of the website is to promote CSS to graphic designers. You can look up past designs and see the versatility of using stylesheets. The css Zen Garden also has a Resource Guide with links to CSS-related sites. CSS for each of the designs as well as sample CSS and HTML are available for download.

For those who want to know more about CSS (or Cascading Style Sheets) you can go to an introductory lesson at the w3schools’ website.

The library also has some books at varying levels that you can look up for more information:
