I stumbled across the WordPress CSS guide a while ago which is really handy for understanding how WordPress reads the CSS and applies it to the blog but I really wanted a MT version. Although I’ve not quite come across the same thing, the following posts help a great deal.
From Slayeroffice is a Mouseover DOM inspector which to the unitiated is a bookmark you put on your links bar and then when you click it and move your mouse over the webpage a popup window tells you whether the area is a div,p,tr,td etc. VERY handy for debugging a rogue web page.Thanks to ScriptyGoddess for this useful link
I tried to use Firefox at Movable Style with the really neat Modern Lines style sheet last night and it worked great – I really like the clean look for it (but shouldn’t it be called Movable Styles?). However for best effect the Style Selector plugin needs to be installed as you can then switch between styles from the icon in the bottom right of the statusbar (as well as from the drop down list on the web page). The annoying thing is that the styleselector extension has gone missing from the Firefox list of plugins. It does still work though as I’m using it right now.
Incidentally I tried using the EditCSS plugin to see what this page would look like with the Modern_lines style and the date text disappears which is annoying and it was too late last night to work out why (and too early right now to try again)
Apparently when posting bold text and italic text you are meant to use strong and em tags instead of b and i tags (which look like bold and italic) due to the latter tags being used for formatting and don’t *mean* anything. Personally i reckon that bold text means a lot more to people that strong text does. Does this mean that one day we are going to see the Worlds Strongest Text on tv (with the endless repeats?). Thanks to A List Aparts page on hacking dreamweaver which incidentally looks like a good way of customising the editor. Zempt uses the strong and em tags when writing posts, but bloggar doesn’t. Fortunately in this case I happened to use Zempt to write this post.
