Dynamic Web Development with Seaside


Styling web applications is a broad topic. This chapter has shown you the most important things to get started. For most people this will be enough to get a decent looking prototype up and running. For commercial applications you will often hire a graphic designer with experience of designing web pages. Once such designers have worked with you on the desired look and feel of your pages, they can provide you with a purpose built style-sheet. Using the techniques described in this chapter you will be able to integrate such style-sheets with the content generated by your application to make it look beautiful.

We have found the following two documents to be helpful in learning more about XHTML and CSS:

XHTML Specification http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/
CSS Level 2 Specification http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/

There are many CSS resources on the web. We’ve accumulated a long list but here are a few that stand out as sites that we repeatedly visit.
