As you probably heard, Yahoo released a useful CSS framework called "Yahoo Grid CSS." It allows users to build, quickly and easily, basic and complex web page layouts with minor hassles. If you want to learn the most relevant features that come with this library, this series of articles shows you how to put this framework to work for you in a very short time.
Using Additional Web Page Presets with Yahoo Grid CSS (Page 1 of 4 )
Welcome to the third tutorial of the series that began with "Using Yahoo Grid CSS." Comprised of four instructive articles, this series shows you how to rapidly build DIV-based web documents by using the helpful tools provided by this handy CSS-based package.
It must be admitted that this recently-released Yahoo framework provides web designers with some interesting features which can be real time savers, particularly in those situations where a concrete web project demands the development of several DIV-based web page layouts on very tight deadlines.
Based upon this concept, the CSS framework in question offers a small set of predefined web page templates, as well as a decent number of presets, which can accelerate the development of more complex web page layouts. It's worthwhile to mention here that this library works with the concepts of "block," "holders" and "grids;" these will be discussed in detail, both in this tutorial and the next one in this series.
As you'll see shortly via the examples that I plan to create in this article, using presets in conjunction with nested grids can give you the versatility required to build complicated web page layouts without the need to appeal to your existing background on this subject. Therefore, having introduced the subject of this third installment of the series, let's learn together how to use the Yahoo Grid CSS framework to build more complex web documents.
