In this follow up to the well-attended TAI CHI HTML5 and CSS3 webinar on 8 March, author and Web design specialist Christopher Schmitt continued the discussion with a more in-depth look at how CSS3 is being used to improve the design, layout, and functionality of modern Web sites. The advent of CSS3 allows for greater control and creativity in Web design.
