CSS Unleashed – Experiments with Lists, Menus, Tables of Content, and More

There are many ways of arranging content. Articles often feature tip boxes, pull-quotes, blockquotes, lists, tables of contents, and menu items helping people get the information they need within and without of the scope of the article. These can also include step-by-step instructions pulled from the article to help take people through the process.

We decided to experiment with a few of these content handling designs to find ways of moving beyond the pull-quote or blockquote to actually presenting bits and pieces of information in an interesting and eye catching fashion with CSS as part of our CSS experiments. In general, the HTML is simple, but the design elements can be sophisticated. As mentioned before, these are CSS experiments, so test them thoroughly within your own design to make sure they work.

Most of these content handling designs begin with a list. It’s what you do with the list that makes the design interesting and part of our CSS experiments.

For more information on how these were done and how to use these CSS design elements and style experiments, see CSS Experiments – How They Were Done and More and CSS Experiments Putting It All Together.

To see how these CSS experimental boxes and styles work, view the source code of the page. In your web browser menu, click VIEW > SOURCE or VIEW > PAGE SOURCE to view the source code. For the most part, the styles are included inline with each design.

The HTML for these CSS experiment designs can be set up in lists, paragraphs, or other HTML tag divisions and containers. We’ve kept the style codes inline for tweaking and messing, and we discuss how to pull these inline CSS codes out to become style sheet references in our last section on this series.

As with all these types of designs and CSS experiments, the color choices are unlimited, so use your imagination and play with these designs to match your own web page designs.

WANT SOME ANSWERS?
If you are looking for answers to your nature photography questions, you’ve come to the right place.
QWhat camera do you use?
AWe use two different camera brands, Canon and Nikon. The Canon equipment is lighter, travels well, and we have a wide range of lenses well suited for travel photography. Our Nikon equipment is older, heavier, and ideal for serious nature photography. We have the long and fast lenses which are ideal for both wildlife and scenic landscapes.
QWhat kind of film do you use and why?
AWe currently use two types of film from one brand: Fuji. We use Fuji’s Sensia 100 for our normal work on just about everything. We also use Fuji’s professional film, Velvia, for high contrast and quality color and slower ISO 50 when the moment cries out for vivid colors, such as for the wildflowers of Texas.
QWhat are your favorite photographic subjects?
AAs nature and travel photographers, our interests are both narrow and diverse at the same time. In general, we avoid photographing people unless they add something to the scene like a cultural event. Yet, we photograph a wide range of animals from large elk, moose, and bear, to the smaller insects and butterflies of the world. We do a lot of scenic landscapes and closeups, and feature a wide range of textures and patterns in our inventory. You could call us focused and selectively diverse.
