Leveraging the Cascade

At times, we seem to take the "cascading" portion of CSS for granted. It is time to delve deeper in one of the most powerful areas of CSS, the "Cascade". In this meetup, we will talk about:

  • Overview of CSS Selectors
  • Efficiency Rules
  • The Cascade
    • The Three Types of Styles
    • Priority Rules
    • Specificity and Inheritance
  • Examples of Cascading styles

    Wendee gave some great explanations on the specifics of how the cascade works. Laid the perfect foundation for the newcomers and provided some nice insights for veterans. I am looking forward to future discussions on CSS pre-processors and maybe something on templating engines?
