css

I’ve started playing around with the css…
I’m very much in “playground mode”. Everything is in transition…
And this process will take some time. Cos my day job also involves sitting in front of “The Great Monitor” for hours on end, I try to use my free time to recover from the side effects of working long hours. Essentially this means it will be a while before the design is final (don’t know about final…. maybe “has settled” is what I mean). Apologies for hurting designer eyes along the way… BTW, if you know of some cool links or have some advise, please feel free to comment below.

I’ve started by defining a color scheme and I’ve prepared a basic design in Photoshop.

The current colors:

{#7786b2}  
{#abc0ff}  
{#b3b3b3}  
{#ffffff}  
{#4d4d4d}  
   

The file to change is wp-layout.css.
I find these links useful:

wp-layout explained – description of the css file

css explained – step by step procedure

I’m using a text editor and Dreamweaver 4 to change the code.

Can’t decide on a font yet… I’ve tried Verdana.

Why not Verdana — it’s nice and common. Nice color scheme. Have you seen slayeroffice’s site? Some really nice & useful things there. [slayeroffice dot com]
