We Can Use CSS3 Now

If you go to any blog post on the CSS 3, you will find it is flooded with comments by web designer and developers who feel they still cannot use CSS 3 on their website. As per their opinion, why we cannot use CSS 3 include; the specification not being finalized or that some elements of CSS 3 are either poorly supported on browsers or not supported at all. It is true but it’s not an excuse to not use CSS 3.

In the case of CSS 3 we have enough browser support in a number of properties to start using them to enhance our websites we produce. Our primary objective is to enhance a design. Any CSS 3 property you are using in your website should be done in such a way that it should not break its appearance and purpose in older browsers.

If you can accept the simple truth that a website doesn’t need to look the same in all browsers then you will see that CSS 3 can be used in your browser without negatively affecting the user experience of those using older browsers.

So I think that those want to use CSS 3 but those who not aware this truth let’s start using CSS 3.

What’s So Great About PHP?

You may be attracted to PHP because it’s free, because it’s easy to learn, or because your boss told you that you need to start working on a PHP project next week. Since you’re going to use PHP, you need to know a little bit about what makes it special. The next time someone asks you “What’s so great about PHP?”

PHP Is Free

You don’t have to pay anyone to use PHP. Whether you run the PHP interpreter on a 10-year-old PC in your basement or in a room full of million-dollar “enterprise-class” servers, there are no licensing fees, support fees, maintenance fees, upgrade fees, or any other kind of charge.

Most Linux distributions come with PHP already installed. If yours doesn’t, or you are using another operating system such as Windows, you can download PHP from http://www.php.net/. Appendix A has detailed instructions on how to install PHP.  As an open source project, PHP is available for anyone to inspect.

PHP Is Cross-Platform

You can use PHP with a web server computer that runs Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, Solaris, and many other versions of Unix. Plus, if you switch web server operating systems, you generally don’t have to change any of your PHP programs. Just copy them from your Windows server to your Unix server, and they will still work. Apache is the most popular web server program used with PHP. PHP also works with a large number of databases including MySQL, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase, and PostgreSQL. In addition, it supports the ODBC standard for database interaction. PHP probably runs on it just fine and works with whatever database you are already using.

PHP Is Widely Used

As of March 2004, PHP is installed on more than 15 million different web sites, from countless tiny personal home pages to giants like Yahoo!. There are many books, magazines, and web sites devoted to teaching PHP and exploring what you can do with it. There are companies that provide support and training for PHP. In short, if you are a PHP user, you are not alone.

PHP Hides Its Complexity

You can build powerful e-commerce engines in PHP that handle millions of customers. You can also build a small site that automatically maintains links to a changing list of articles or press releases. When you need advanced features such as caching, custom libraries, or dynamic image generation, they are available. If you don’t need them, you don’t have to worry about them. You can just focus on the basics of handling user input and displaying output.

PHP Is Built for Web Programming

Unlike most other programming languages, PHP was created from the ground up for generating web pages. This means that common web programming tasks, such as accessing form submissions and talking to a database, are often easier in PHP. PHP comes with the capability to format HTML, manipulate dates and times, and manage web cookies, tasks that are often available only as add-on libraries in other programming languages.

CSS 3 – Basic Information

Cascading Style Sheets, or CSS, is a language used to specify the visual appearance of a Web page—in contrast to HTML (HyperText Markup Language), which is a markup language that defines the structure of a document for distribution on the Web. HTML tells a Web browser how the content is organized on the page, whereas CSS tells the browser how it should look.

CSS3, an abbreviation for CSS Level 3, is the next generation of this style language that adds several new capabilities. It may still be under development by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium), but CSS3 has already taken its place alongside HTML5 at the forefront of all cutting-edge Web design.

Unlike CSS1 and 2, a single, comprehensive CSS3 does not exist. Instead, rather than trying to release the entire specification at once, the CSS Working Group has split the spec into a series of modules; each of which has its own developmental timeline.
