CSS 2.1 and CSS 3, while not widely supported at the moment, are inching closer and closer to gaining the browser-level support we all wish for. Now that Firefox 3.5 has been released, and because of the fairly high adoption/upgrade rate of it's user-base, front-end developers are one step closer to the stress-reducing benefits these two versions of CSS provide.
In this presentation, you'll be introduced to a fair chunk of CSS 2.1 and CSS 3 selectors, properties, and values. You'll see actual code, the rendered output of that code, a few in-browser demonstrations, and we'll discuss the ways in which these new items can make your life, as a front-end developer, much easier.
If you and/or your company supports gracefully degrading certain aspects of a website's design, then you'll be able to apply a large portion of the CSS we'll be discussing right away.
