Thorsten Scherler updated FOR-652:

    Component: Dispatcher (aka views)
                   (was: Skins (general issues))
      Summary: CSS Style Sheets need cleanup, optimization and better naming of elements 
(was: CSS Style Sheets need cleanup and optimization)*checkout*/forrest/events/forrest-friday/20060210-summary.txt
Cheche and Thorsten discussed the horrible CSS in version 0.7 and hoped
that Dispatcher will be better.*checkout*/forrest/events/forrest-friday/20060210-log.txt
[18:50] cheche: I am a bit  sad about forrest...
[18:50] cheche: I was doing a web site for a customer
[18:50] tscherler: why?
[18:50] cheche:
[18:51] cheche: I did it using forrest v.07
[18:51] cheche: and I ask a css programer to help me with the site
[18:51] cheche: I have got an email yesterday from him
[18:52] tscherler: and?
[18:52] cheche: he said that it was the most complex css code that he ever saw
[18:52] cheche: and he quit for the job :-)
[18:53] tscherler: lol
[18:53] tscherler: the css was growing
[18:55] cheche: well, that was with the old version
[18:55] cheche: is the dispatcher going to help in this way?
[19:00] cheche: I am ok with the new changes.
[19:02] cheche: xley: can I add as en example site?
[19:02] xley: better if they do.
[19:02] xley: sure please do
[19:03] cheche: but It has his own skin and a lot of modifications
[19:03] xley: no problem, it is still an example of what can be done.
[19:03] cheche: ok then
[19:04] tscherler: cheche yes and no
[19:04] tscherler: the css codes is not rewritten for the dispatcher
[19:04] tscherler: but it would make sense
[19:05] tscherler: it makes it way easier for a designer to change everything but still you
need to do it ;-)
[19:05] tscherler: k

> The current CSS implementation needs a bit of a cleanup, some tweaking and optimization.
It needs to be improved and some styles converted to % in order to cater for different browsers
and user resolutions. A more fluid design needs to be the outcome. The overall style and look
and feel of the current pelt skin is to largely remain the same where possible whilst implementing
these improvements. The style sheets are to remain CSS1 valid and aim for CSS2 valid. When
XHTML2 is implemented perhaps CSS3 can be achieved.
