Submission + - 53 CSS-Techniques You Couldn't Live Without

Sushi writes: CSS is important. And it is being used more and more often. Cascading Style Sheets offer a strict separation between layout, or design of the page, and the information, presented on the page. Thus the design of pages can be easily changed, just replacing a css-file with another one. Over the last few years web-developers have developed many useful techniques, which can save you a lot of time — of course, if you are able to find them in time. The article 53 CSS-Techniques You Couldn't Live Without lists essential techniques, which make the life of web-developers easier.

In the response he got, he discovered that the prices are double due to 'EU legislation.' Despite this, he was told that Vista can be ordered from the US and installed on machines in the UK, therefore saving half the cost!

Will you be ordering your copy of Vista from the US, or paying the inappropriate tiny-island tax?
