Today I finished up lesson 2. I'd been having issues with trying to move from my old design to a new one. I really like the one I've got now's look so I stuck with it. Though in order to show the Power of Style Sheets I'm going to actually implement the 3 other themes I created a while back - "Making Business Grow", "Breaking the Mold", and "Changing Times".
I have a series of things I need to do in order to complete My Portfolio tho. My first project either tomorrow or Monday will be to get a static page of DM's current "Old School" design working on my site so I'm not pulling bandwidth from DM, and rid the page of all it's dynamic ads and stuff using static images instead in order to really show what I'm looking at.
I will do a little bit of background information on the site, like how much space that one page takes up and use it to estimate how much bandwidth it takes.
Then I'll redo the site using ALL CSS. I've done it before so it shouldn't be too difficult to do. And then do the same thing with the estimation. The point of this portfolio example is that my designs will save you money in the long run and you will get the same look if an "old school" designer did the job.
That is one good thing for CSS. The second thing I'll need to do is make the style switcher for my portfolio in order to demonstrate the power of style sheets. To show that all the same information that a mere switch of a style sheet can change the entire look of a site. The Zen Garden demonstrates that, but this is my work and it will be limited.
