CSS3 and HTML5
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) have finally released CSS3 after the 12 year over-haul of CSS2.1. Now, all major browsers are HTML5 compatible and have adopted the new CSS3 features - giving hope to struggling web developers. Combined, these two powerful tools, can create fantastic solutions for modern websites needing to cope with the explosion of differing screen resolutions as the mobile markets come online. Both CSS3 and HTML5 are still not completely 'signed off' and there will be further releases in the future as pockets of 'recommendations' become finalised and ear-marked for general release. An exciting future for sure and a timely response to the many problems facing designers derived from the rapid advancement in mobile technology.
W3C have now modularised CSS and in CSS3 there are currently in excess of 50 modules that we can count - each addressing different subjects of styling and layout. Without doubt, the most important of these modules is 'Media Queries' which quite simply allows website designers to apply conditions to a style sheet to accommodate fluidity.
HTML5 and CSS3 are merely two of many technologies that are evolving and adjusting to the problems presented by the modern internet. Understanding these changes and picking the right solutions (of which there are many) is something that we at Saxon Websites™ do well. All new websites designed by ourselves are built specifically to our clients instructions and will include all of this new technology and lots more besides - we only use current and up to date web technologies.
