Brooklyn Review Webdesign

Getting to work on the Brookyln Review redesign was my first time handcoding a web site using HTML and CSS. The last time I ran handcoded websites CSS was but a glimmer in some web developer’s eye and webrings ruled the day.

As expected, the most difficult part of the process was creating columns that exist side-by-side using float. Eventually, I was able to get it but I’m not sure quite how. I never realized quite how useful Firebug’s ‘inspect element’ feature is until I needed help identifying which ‘boxes’ I had created and where!
