Busy Day with Rod and Asuh

Spent the day with 2 friends teaching each other, by going over what we are each learning. Which is cool, because we each work in very different environments (from corporate to freelance) and different types of teams (individual, local central shared, and remote). we have a lot to learn from each other, and one day is just an introduction.

why NOT using @import for css

1. CSS3 Media Queries JS (polyfil for older browsers)

http://code.google.com/p/css3-mediaqueries-js/

css3-mediaqueries.js by Wouter van der Graaf is a JavaScript library to make IE 5+, Firefox 1+ and Safari 2 transparently parse, test and apply CSS3 Media Queries. Firefox 3.5+, Opera 7+, Safari 3+ and Chrome already offer native support.

Usage: just include the script in your pages.

(And you should combine and compress with other scripts and include it just before /body for better page speed – but you already knew that).

Write your media queries like you would for browsers with native support. The script will parse your CSS and apply the styles for positive media query tests realtime (also when you resize).

Note: Doesn’t work on @import’ed stylesheets (which you shouldn’t use anyway for performance reasons). Also won’t listen to the media attribute of the link and style elements.

2. I’m also using scott jehls respond.js

https://github.com/scottjehl/Respond

Respond.js doesn’t parse CSS refrenced via @import, nor does it work with media queries within style elements, as those styles can’t be re-requested for parsing.

also notice the…
