Great Dozen of Advices to the Beginning HTML Coders

Great Dozen of Advices to the Beginning HTML Coders

Introduction

I am a freelancer. Previously, I didn’t think much about how and what coders do. I was responsible for the server, and my friend was coding and managing with the content. Quite recently I wanted to try to understand “what’s what”. A couple of days ago I came across the material that I liked very much. It was a clear example of what and how to write.

How to Create Simple Tooltips with CSS3

I was asked for several times to create simple tooltips, the one with the arrows. It seemed to be easy: I had to do a block with round corners, take triangles and voilà. However, it’s not that simple. Because you know that designers’ imagination is very creative and sometimes even wild. They want to make inclined arrows, frames, or add some shadows. Certainly, it is possible to complete everything on the pictures, but it is impractical. If for no other reason than the heap of actions, in order that all will stretch on all sides.
