Some good reading I found over the weekend (unfortunately, since we’re moving in less than two weeks reading time is at a premium):
- A List Apart on designing flexible CSS layout grids using absolute positioning
- evolt.org on how to deal with courtesy titles (Mr., Mrs., Lord) on Web-based forms
- Boxes and Arrows begins a 12-part series on interaction design
- since1968.com interviews the other big usability guy, Steve Krug (of Don’t Make Me Think! fame)
- finally, “Patterns for Personal Web Sites” makes information architecture easy to understand and provides some patterns to use as templates — this is a must read.
Steve Clay has mixed and match some of Eric A. Meyer’s CSS tricks to produce an entirely CSS pop-out menu that works amazingly well in Gekco-based browser, and does pretty good in Opera 7b1. No word on how OmniWeb deals with it, but if it does have problems, CodeBitch may help with some ways to block CSS from rendering in that browser.
