Css Card


CSS Basic Selectors

Grouping Selectors

These are mostly commented out. You will need to uncomment them to see them in action. Quick tip: try selecting from the start /* to the end */ and then press command + / on macOS or ctrl + / on Windows.

This will toggle comments on and off for what you have selected. Works in VS Code as well.

Crime Blotter

This is a modification of an example project from the website for the book Thinking with Type by Ellen Lupton. You can find the original on this page http://thinkingwithtype.com/text/#heirarchy. The idea is to use adjust the text to give the repeating elements a hierarchy that makes them easier to read and compare.
