Although the W3 (World Wide Web Consortium) have sent out CSS3 (New version of the CSS language) to various browser company’s such as Mozilla and Safari. Support for it is not high enough, so some of the great attributes that CSS3 will be bringing in such as box-shadow which allows you to add shadow (that we will be creating in this tutorial) with one attribute.

I will admit that towards the end of 2008, I was not active much so there wasn’t any new content posted, I have paid for this by having to nice spike in my traffic graph and also have -16% on my Google Analytics dashboard, it’s not pretty but I wasn’t exactly expecting a graph continously going up even when I didn’t post anything new. But in my what sounds like court room defence I was busy for my college work. It’s simple as that. Priorities are the word here. I love my blog, I spend to much time on it and it distracts me in college when im a on PC, but college work is important!
This was a topic covered in episode 6 of the FS-Air podcast which I am part of (Episode will go out on Friday), and we all shared our views on the subject and the reason why we’re excited about it.

(As we also covered other points so we generally spend the same time on each section) For anyone who is wondering what the hell CSS3 is, basically it is the new version of the CSS language.
Uploaders are scripts that give a user the ability to upload a file/image to a certain space defined in the script that runs the uploader, im sure the websites such as Imageshack and Photobucket are familiar to you, and there many services out there, but wouldn’t it be nice to create your own little uploader service?

I’ve been doing a big of changes to the header of James’ Blog and one of the main changes is the navigation, I’ve used a glassy effect to make them stand out but I’ve also noticed I’ve posted quite a few tutorials on creating a navigation bar, but in each of them I’ve used divs. But it’s time for change! In this tutorial however, no divs will be used, instead you will be forming a navigation bar using a unordered list. This tutorial will show you how to style and control lists in CSS, as well as showing you the valid ways of using lists and where to use them.
