Since 1998, the westciv CSS Guide has been used by hundreds of thousands of developers to learn CSS, and as a detailed CSS Reference.
At westciv, we love the iPod. Not just for music, but to backup and transport files, and now as a reference library for CSS.
Grab a copy of the Style Master CSS podGuide today, and give yourself just one more reason to never go anywhere without your iPod.
To install the podGuide
- Make sure you have an iPod which supports Notes (iPod mini or 3rd Generation iPod or later - most iPods really)
- Download the zipped file - Stuffit Expander on the Mac and any zip application on windows will be able to unzip it to a folder called Style Master CSS Guide
- Mount your iPod as an external drive via FireWire or USB, just as you would to work with iTunes
- Open the Notes folder on your iPod on your PC or Mac - on Windows it will show up in My Computer, on the Mac in the finder sidebar, or in the Computer (use the Finder's Go Menu to open your "Computer" window)
- Drag the unzipped folder into the Notes folder of your iPod
- Unmount your iPod and you're done
To read the notes
- From the main menu of your iPod choose Extras
- From the Extras menu choose Notes
- Choose the entry Style Master CSS Guide
- To read any section just scroll to it using the scroll wheel and click to open it
If you've not read text on an iPod before, it is nice and easy, as you'd expect. In fact it will probably take you less time to work it out for yourself than it does to read these instructions, but just i case you like reading instructions...
Use the scroll wheel to scroll up and down the text. The iPod even supports simple linking, which we've taken advantage of in the podGuide. At the top of each section you'll find links to its subsections. Links are shown as a subtle underline. The current link has a solid underline. To select the current link just click the select button, in the center of the click wheel. As you scroll through the text, the iPod automatically jumps to the next link, and it becomes the current link.
The menu button takes you up to the next level. So the quickest way to go back to the top of a note is probably to click the menu button, then the select button.
