8 different ways to beautifully style your lists

The use of HTML lists (<ol> for an ordered list, <ul> for an unordered list) is very common these days. Today, we're going to look a little bit further than creating regular lists, by showing 8 different ways to beautifully style your HTML lists with CSS. We'll use some pure CSS techniques to make a bored list look awesome (and even have some extra functionality).

As a reminder, here's how a default ordered list and a unordered list look like:

  1. Ordered list item #1
  2. Ordered list item #2
  3. Ordered list item #3
  • Unordered list item #1
  • Unordered list item #2
  • Unordered list item #3

And check out the demo to see what we're going to create with it.

Looks much better, doesn't it? And you get all that, just by adding a couple of sweet CSS stuff. Want to know how? Here we go!

CSS trick: Debug your HTML and CSS

Today, I'll be showing you a neat little CSS trick to Debug your HTML and CSS. Take note that this will not be actual debugging, but it can help you find the element depth on a web page. Also, when you didn't properly close a tag, this piece of code will expose it for you.

Debug your HTML and CSS

Simply check out the demo to view what we're going to create! At first, the demo looks like a regular web page. But when you start hovering the elements, you'll be able to see the HTML structure (in depth) of the HTML page.

There are just a couple of lines of CSS to get this effect! Check out how (or view the source) you can create this yourself.

Create a mouse follower with smokey trail in Silverlight

Last week, I started experimenting with Microsoft Silverlight. I've never worked with the technique before, but after using it, I was impressed. It works pretty good and the separation of the XAML and CS file is great.

Today, we're going to create a Smokey Mouse Follower in Silverlight. This was my first experiment too and pretty fun to see. I have to admit that the layout can be improved in loads of ways, but this tutorial is intended to be for beginner Silverlight users.

Mouse Follower

We'll be using Microsoft Expression Blend 3 in this tutorial. Visual Studio will probably give the same effect, but I haven't tested it. We're going to create the program using Visual C#. The images (cursors) I used are from IconFinder.

Make sure to check out the demo to see what we're going to create! As you can see, it's not really that useful, but pretty fun to see. Also, it's a great way to get in touch with Silverlight. Let's start!

Create a better jQuery stylesheet switcher

Style Sheet switchers (or "colour theme choosers") are not really that new. Apart from that fact, they still are pretty fun to use and cool to see. I was wondering how jQuery could help me achieve this technique. While searching, I came across several solutions.

There is a problem when using these techniques, which I will explain later. I created a little work-around to create a better jQuery stylesheet switcher. We'll simply change some colours for the user!

The cute little monsters used in the demo are created by Fast Icon (Dirceu Veiga). Now, let's take a look at how you can create something like this yourself!

Theatrical movie trailer with jQuery

Don't you wonder sometimes, when looking at something, how you can create something like that yourself? I have to admit that I do. This is why I came up with the Skype for Mac and the iPhone examples in your webbrowser. Today, we're trying something new in this Proof of Concept category: creating a theatrical movie trailer with jQuery

Theatrical movie trailer with jQuery

This technique could be really well used when creating a slide-show that just needs some text. Using the CSS letter-spacing property, we can really make it look like the movies.

Demo Theatrical movie trailer   Download Theatrical movie trailer

I'll leave out the CSS in this tutorial, since not much really important stuff is going on there. This example works best in Firefox - Although it works in Safari and Opera too, the letter-spacing CSS property gets rounded up (or down) and you won't be able to see the full effect. Also, you'll need to imagine the sound effects yourself.

jQuery Code Expander

There is a problem on the web. Displaying actual programming code takes away a lot of space of the webpage (especially the longer ones). You can split up the code in several parts, but that's really hard to read for programmers. You can leave it "as it is" and users would have to scroll a lot if they're not interested in the code itself. And scrollbars in code-examples - that's just horrible (and yes - that's what I have on this website).

I created a solution for this problem and call it the jQuery Code Expander. It does exactly what you think it does - Expand any code you want to place online using jQuery.

But, before you can expand anything, it has to be cropped. That's where the CSS kicks in. It's like a combination of using scrollbars and fully showing the code!

This script only changes those elements that needs to be expanded and doesn't touch those who don't. An additional overlay image is added, just to show the user that it can expand the code example. Check out the demo and read below what the secret of this technique is.
