Want to make your articles, reports, blog postings more visually appealing? Assembled here are my all-time favorite textboxes, callouts, sidebars, and formatted quotations easily created using simple CSS. Included are the little code snipplets you’ll need to duplicate these on your own blog (whether using WordPress, Blogger or another CMS).
When presenting information online, you often want to do more with it than just italicize some text, or make a headline big and red. You probably want the means to create callout boxes and sidebars, with different colors, different borders, in differing sizes — just like you would find in offline documents created with OpenOffice, Microsoft Word, or your favorite Desktop Publisher. Often, the code to create such boxes is not usually included in the stylesheet that comes with your theme or template. This series remedies that!
