Don’t fall for Domain Slamming

I just sent this information via email to everyone I know who I do business with who has a domain name and thought it was worth a share on here as well.

Floats vs. Inline-Block

I had been questioning my use of each and was pleasantly surprised to see that I know a lot of these caveats and solutions. This article was well-written, clear and a quick read and can help you decide when to use each of these.

Of all these mentioned… I hate, hate, hate the clear fix div method. Ugh. What a sloppy solution. It's like puking in your code. (I'm working to style Drupal pages that have that scattered throughout the HTML. Yuck.)
