CSS Cheat Sheet

Here's a handy cheat sheet for CSS, which includes selectors, the box model, and organizes the various properties into logical categories. Read the full explanation here. You'll still want a bookmark to the spec property index though.

Dave Hyatt, who works on the Safari browser (but used to work on Gecko, the rendering engine in Mozilla and Firefox) recently posted a fascinating blog entry on some optimization possibilities in CSS browser implementations. As part of his long discussion, he mentions that both Gecko and Safari call HTML attributes that affect CSS "mapped attributes". I didn't know that -- in my code I've called them non-CSS presentational hints, as in applyNonCssPresentationalHints(). Yep - super ugly name but that's what the CSS spec calls them. I like "mapped attributes" better so I think I'm going to rename my related methods!

Finally, JSR 273 which I recently mentioned was discussed on the ServerSide the last couple of days, but the signal to noise ratio was extremely low. However the referenced Artima interview with Joe is good.
