SASS. I have toyed with SASS a little, and I do mean a little. We have it built into one of our projects. Usually when you create your styling you rarely need to go change it. So those few times I have managed to figure things out.
Personally that is not good enough. It is one of those topics I keep meaning to learn about and yet not have the time. I received an email with a link to Luke’s article from Simple Programmer. It is a long read, but it is worth it.
Simple Programmer is a great resource as well. I highly suggest you subscribe to his news letter. You never know what you mind find in your inbox; today I found this article. I went to Luke’s site and saw right away several more I would like to read.
This is more of a note to myself than anything else. I am trying to create a new MVC project using our Telerik subscription. I wanted to try their menu, but noticed it wasn’t styled properly. Nothing like in their demo, it was huge.
I did some searching on the Internet to no avail, so I fired up Opera’s web tools and started tooling around. I noticed my menu was using a non-Telerik style, but one of the default ones found in Site.css. Specifically it was using ul #menu.
I had to laugh at myself. Telerik’s menu renders as a UL, like most menus these days. Silly me used the name menu. That is why that style was being applied. I changed the name to masterMenu and it looked as advertised.
This post is to store a little bit of information I found that relates to Internet Explorer 8 and CSS. Like many, doing CSS for three browsers can be a headache, especially with IE not wanting to play.
Well it turns out it can play well, you just have to tell it to with a simple meta tag. I really wish I could remember the URL I found this information on originally but I am sorry I cannot. Trust me, this is an easy one to forget so it goes here in my E-Brain.
Here is the meta tag you will need to use. I have used it in a .NET master page that other master pages used and it still worked.
<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=8"/>
