Information

The above is an index of all my css demonstrations which range from the very simple to the more bizarre and advanced.

These demonstrations all work in the latest versions of the most popular browsers but cannot be guaranteed to work in older browser version or some of the lesser known browsers. I am unable to test on Mac browsers so if you want to use any of my demonstration ideas on a Mac then you should check that it works on your particular platform / browser combination.

For these demonstrations to work in ie please make sure that you are using a standards compliant doctype as the first line of your code. A list of the recommended DTDs can be found at the following link:
Recommended DTDs to use in your Web document.


Copyright

Most of my demonstrations can be used without asking for permission. However, some will require email approval first. Just check each page for the copyright requirements before use.

If you are having problems integrating any of my demonstrations into your website then I now offer a service to fault find and correct any errors that you may have introduced. Please email me for more information.
