Figure 5-12. Moving up the weight scale

In the last two nested elements, the computed value of font-weight is increased because of the liberal use of the keyword bolder. If we were to replace the text in the paragraph with numbers representing the font-weight of each element, we would get the results in Figure 5-13: body { background-color: #e1ddd9; font-size: 12px; font-family: Verdana, Arial, SunSans-Regular, Sans-Serif; color:#564b47; padding:0px 20px; margin:0px; } #content { border:1px solid #564b47; background-color:#fff; }

that to be the browser's minimum value forwidth. In order to avoid this problem, make surethat you declare a width for your floated elements. Otherwise, youcould get something like Figure 7-66.

There are many other interesting effectsassociated with floating elements. Take the example of a short

XML is an open standard

By making the W3C the keeper of the XML standard, it ensures that no one vendor should be able to cause interoperability problems to occur between systems that use the open standard. This should be reassuring to most companies making an investment in this technology, by being vendor neutral, this solution proposes to keep even small companies out of reach of big companies choosing to change the standards on them. For example, if a big company chooses to change the platform at its whim, then most other companies relying on that platform suffer. By keeping all data in XML and using XML in communications protocols, companies can maximize the lifetime of their investment in their products and solutions.

XML is language independent

By being language independent, XML bypasses the requirement to have a standard binary encoding or storage format. Language independence also fosters immense interoperability amongst heterogeneous systems. It is also good for future compatilbilty. For example, if in the future a product needs to be changed in order to deal with a new computing paradigm or network protocol, by keeping XML flowing through the system, addition of a new layer to deal with this change is feasible.

scale, instead of up. With a quick modification of the previousexample, we can see this very clearly:

/*   assume only two faces for this example: 'Regular' and 'Bold'   */P {font-weight: 900;}   /* as bold as possible, which will look 'bold' */P SPAN {font-weight: 700;}   /* this will also be bold */STRONG {font-weight: lighter;}   /* lighter than its parent */B {font-weight: lighter;}   /*lighter still */<P>900 <SPAN> 700 <STRONG> 400 <B> 300 <STRONG> 200
colors were taken from the original sixteen basic
VGA colors, and
browsers are supposed to generate colors that at least come close to
matching those original 16. They may be a fairly motley collection of
colors, but they're what we have.

So let's say we want all first-level headings to be maroon. The best declaration would be:

This is a shorthand property for the other font properties. Any of these values may be omitted except for font-size and font-family, which are always required for a valid font declaration. Note the following incorrect examples.
