Sample text

Css. Note that in CSS, a word followed by parentheses is known as a function. A function requires at least one argument (depending on the function being used), which, in the case of the url() function, is the path to an image. In Chapter 5 you will learn more about backgroundimage and what exactly those two dots mean in the path. You now see a background image applied to the body of the page, as shown in Figure 3-2. What happened to the background color? Don’t worry; it’s still there! The browser sees that you’ve added both a background color and background image to the same selector.

This is known as graceful degradation. In a browser that doesn’t support CSS3, it simply falls back to what it does support. The user of that browser still sees a nicely styled web page and is none the wiser to the fact that in a modern browser, he could be seeing a few extra niceties. Nothing appears broken to him, and the way in which he is interacting with your web page isn’t affected. There is also another technique similar to this known as progressive enhancement, but what’s the difference?

This saves you work (and if you’re creating a web page for a client, it saves money), but the user can still see all the information on the page because, after all, CSS is just presentation. Of course, if you’re creating web pages for a paying client, now or in the future, you would need to discuss browser support. By analyzing the latest usage statistics for browsers, as well as the client’s existing statistics on their own website (should they already have one), you can determine what browsers your client’s users are using to view the site and aim to support those browsers with the site you’re creating.
