Decontstructing The Expressive Web

Inter­est­ing inter­view of the breakdown/process poured into mak­ing Adobe and Big Spaceship’s lat­est project: The Expres­sive Web.

Adobe Prin­ci­pal Prod­uct Man­ager Mike Cham­bers sits down with Stephen Koch, Sr. Devel­oper from dig­i­tal cre­ative agency Big Space­ship, to dis­cuss new design tools in HTML5 and CSS3 that can help you cre­ate expres­sive fea­tures in your web­pages’ UIs.

Clearfix Revisited

The new style rules I’m using:

.clear:after {
    content:" ";
    display:block;
    height:0;
    clear:both;
    visibility:hidden;
    font-size:0;
}
.clear { display: inline-block; }
/* Hides from IE-mac \*/
* html .clear { height:1%; }
.clear { display:block; }
/* End hide from IE-mac */

All I can say is that this is going to be one very nice Suite, and should be fun to play/work with.
