Resources


The CDAP, as its name states, helps in the final stage of assessing how websites may appear to others. It is set up to get reactions from volunteers on how they see your website. It is intended to either flag problems or to suggest a clean bill of health. It is not intended as a place for intense discusson and resolution of problems. These are more properly handled within some of the technical Forums. However it is not a black and white question and there will be shades of gray involved. We hope it will evolve as its users find helpful.

In the same way, resources to handle problems are more likely to be found in other Forums. Here we will only provide a few pointers to resources. The most important link is that to the Sticky topic in the CSS Forum entitled "CSS Resource Sites.

Those who prefer to read a book may find the following two useful:
Jeffrey Zeldman’s Designing With Web Standards (2nd edition) 2006
"The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks" by Rachel Andrew.

Are there any websites to test a website in multiple browsers?

I don't mean screen shots, I'm talking about testing AJAX, javascript, etc. Dynamic things that entail a client...

Edit: Lol. If I clicked on all the links before I posted that. I might save myself time. ;)

http://crossbrowsertesting.com is the solution. :)
