Cases and Places
Apply your creative thinking and problem-solving skills to design and implement a solution.
1: Finding CSS Information Online
Browse the Internet to find two Web sites that discuss advanced Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). How
else can CSS be used in your Web development that differs from how it has been used in Chapters 2
through 7? What other properties and values can you use to format your Web pages? What are other
ways that you can create external style sheets to be used for printing only? Specifically evaluate how
CSS3 can be used with the browsers to which you have access. Write a brief report on each Web site,
including the URL, and be prepared to discuss what other advanced CSS you would like to utilize.

images. Determine how you could use this pop-up effect for text and why it might be helpful in your
own Web development. Write a one-page paper explaining your thoughts on pop-up effects created
