Hi Folk

Do you know if there is a document somewhere out there that describes exactly how to code html/css for silverstripe - that could be pretty useful. I want to give such a document to the person who does my css and html. If it does not exist yet, then I will create one.

we have started a pretty deep CSS documentation process here . Documenting the HTML process is something we are just talking about. In fact we were going to start it this afternoon to set up some quick guidelines!

great. It would be really nice to be able to give some random css/html hacker a one pager with things such as:

1. last element in a menu can have the "last" class added to it
2. doctype should be....
3. folder names are....

At the same time, you dont want to confuse the poor css-er with a raft of stuff they dont need to know....

The link you provided looks pretty good, although I would be a bit worried that it would get out of hand overtime...

Please add to it too, I probably missed something and made it too 'tutorially' but hey I failed english at school so I look forward to your rewrites :P

Hopefully that will be enough to help your designer get started.
