I found a very simple, nice CSS-only method for making a sticky header in WordPress today. This is for Genesis but is easy to use with non-Genesis themes.

I could get lost in here for days – check out this enormous list of typography tutorials with topics including:

- 3D and animated font effects
Few things have influenced me as a web designer as much as the huge impact made by the original CSS Zen Garden, launched in 2003. It’s about 95% responsible for me learning CSS for the first time, and it’s recently been relaunched for HTML5 and CSS3 – learn more.
And then visit the new CSS Zen Garden and plan to spend some time looking around; I’m looking forward to wandering through it this weekend. Joy!
The folks at MFG Labs say they created this set for an internal project, but it has a really nice, clean selection of icons that should be useful for just about any project. Download and learn how to use them here.
Stylify Me offers an easy way to generate a very light style guide. It will show you a site’s background colors, Typography (fonts, sizes, colors and text samples) and a screenshot of the home page. It also shows sample image dimensions, but it looks like it only pulls a few images from the home page, so that’s kind of confusing. Also if your type is white, it doesn’t show since the page background is white.
May be good for very basic use, but it doesn’t replace a detailed style guide by any means.
