He explains how we can now add an MP4 file directly to the source of an img tag. That would look something like this: The idea is that that code would render an image with a...

Here’s a nifty post by Jonathan Snook where he walks us through how to make a calendar interface with CSS Grid and there’s a lot of tricks in here that are worth digging into a little bit more, particularly where Jonathan uses grid-auto-flow: dense which will let Grid take the wheels of a design and try to fill up as much of the allotted space...

Every month for the past year, David Jonathan Ross has been publishing a new font to his Font of the Month Club. It’s only $6 for a monthly subscription and it provides early access to some of his work. I’d highly recommend signing up because each design is weird and intriguing in a very good way: Join the Font of the Month Club and get a...

Experiments are a fun excuse to learn the latest tricks, think of new ideas, and push your limits. "Pure CSS" demos have been a thing for a while, but new opportunities open up as browsers and CSS itself evolves. CSS and HTML preprocessors also helped the scene move forward.
