All those pretty colors...

Creating a CSS design always has that little element of chaos, not being sure it you've got the right selector or not. A smart little trick is to start of by setting the background color of all the different elements. This way you'll be able to check that all selectors are correct, as well as having a simple way of telling them apart.

This little trick becomes even more powerful when performed on markup that isn't your own, I don't think there's a faster and easier way to learn someone's design principals.

(un)pretty websiteThat's where I'm at with this site now. I've just started with the initial styling process by trashing all the previously used styles and simply adding background colors to the different sections. I've always found this technique to be incredibly useful. Usually I keep all the colors around towards the end of the design process, as it's very easy to see where something goes wrong. So please bear with me for a couple of days as this site looks even less appealing...

Anyway; That's what all the (not so) pretty colors on this site are all about...
