Here you will find a number of articles I have written the last few years. The subjects vary but are usually around web development, especially HTML5, but other topics are explored too.

CSS stacking with display:table

With responsive design, one of the things that we often want to do is to change the stack order of certain elements, moving the aside on the left below the main text which we want to bring to the top. CSS3‘s Flexbox will do this for us, but there is a quicker, if dirtier, way which we can use now.

Help and be nice

Those of us who work in the web community are constantly learning. New technologies, techniques, plugins, etc. appear every day, some we ignore others we dive into. As well as official documentation we also rely on the articles, blog posts and coding examples of others to help us get up to speed. When talking about and responding to such writings we should always remember something important: be nice.

Mr. Sherlock Holmes

Like many other people around the world I am a huge fan of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. I thought I had read them all until recently I came across a list of stories and discovered that I had not. I was on my phone at the time so I searched online for some decent HTML version.
