A More Perfect Union with HTML5 and CSS3

Following last year's presentation, Christopher Schmitt presents the CSS flag updated for HTML5 and CSS3 again for the 4th of July!

CSS radically changes the way we can alter the presentation of our documents. As designers, though, we sometimes limit our designs by taking CSS properties at their face value.

In this fun-filled online session in celebration of USA's Independence Day and Web design nerdery, Christopher Schmitt walks you through various strategies for working with CSS3 to create a rich visual presentation--the US Flag--out of HTML5.
