Working together for standards The Web Standards Project


It’s been in beta for some time but last week Sitepoint made their new CSS Reference available on the Sitepoint website as a free community resource.

Authors Tommy Olsson and Paul O’Brien have created an incredibly detailed and complete reference to CSS, not simply listing the various properties and syntax but showing examples, detailing browser compatibility issues and giving best practice guidelines throughout. A huge amount of work has gone into this – and it’s going to get better with time as the reference also enables user submitted comments. If you have solved a particular issue or know that certain usage can cause problems in a browser and that hasn’t already been listed, you can go and add this information.

If you are struggling with CSS bugs and workarounds the CSS Advisor from Adobe is another place to go and find help – or contribute to the pool of knowledge. The Adobe CSS Advisor is a community wiki where you can find solutions already contributed, add comments to those solutions or add new solutions to browser bugs and issues.

Finally don’t forget the CSS Discuss wiki, documenting a wide variety of information from bug fixes to layout examples.

If you have a favorite CSS resource not mentioned here – let us know in the comments.
