I explored The Element Box Model and how to specify/control box functions using various properties in CSS. Specifying Dimensions, Padding, Margins, Assigning Display Types, and Box Drop Shadows were all discussed in this chapter. These properties help to precisely manipulate the space inside and outside specific elements (or possibly all elements).
So far, i’ve learned about properties and attributes that only control the display of elements in the flow of text. The floating & positioning properties, however, change things up a bit. Now, I can break up the normal flow of text and place any element box anywhere on the page. Very Cool!
This week, and for the remainder of my design career, I will be continuing my CSS studies; as it is critical for todays’ webpages. After a couple of weeks of studying/classes under my belt, I really am very excited to develop my current skills as well as learn new ones!
