Table with Expando Rows
"Expando Rows&quot; is a concept where multiple related rows in a <table> are collapsed until you open them. You'd call that &quot;progressive disclosure&quot; in interaction design parlance.
After all these years on CSS-Tricks, I have a little better eye for what the accessibility concerns of a design/interactivity feature are. I'm not entirely sure how I would have approached this problem myself, but there is a good chance that whatever I would have tried wouldn't have hit the bullseye with accessibility. … Read article

Self-Host Your Static Assets
Harry Roberts digs into why hosting assets on someone else’s servers (including CDNs) is not such a great idea if we want our websites to be lightning fast.
Harry writes:

One of the quickest wins—and one of the first things I recommend my clients do—to make websites faster can at first seem counter-intuitive: you should self-host all of your static assets, forgoing others’ CDNs/infrastructure.

I think perhaps the most shocking example Harry shows is this one:

...on a reasonably

CSS Remedy
There is a 15-year history of CSS resets. In fact, a "reset&quot; isn't really the right word. Tantek Çelik's take in 2004 was called &quot;undohtml.css&quot; and it wasn't until a few years later when Eric Meyer called his version a reset, that the word became the default term. When Normalize came around, it called itself a reset alternative, which felt right, because it wasn't trying to obliterate all styles, but instead bring the base styles that browsers … Read article

Styling a Select Like It’s 2019
It's rather heartwarming to know you can style a <select> in a rather cross-browser friendly way that doesn't hurt accessibility. Kudos for documenting this Scott!

How to create a logo that responds to its own aspect ratio
One of the cool things about <svg> is that it's literally its own document, so @media queries in CSS inside the SVG are based on its viewport rather than the HTML document that likely contains it.
This unique feature has let people play around for years. Tim Kadlec experimented with SVG formats and which ones respect the media queries most reliably. Sara Soueidan experimented with that a bunch more. Jake Archibald embedded a canvas inside and tested cross-browser compatibility that …

Crafting Webfont Fallbacks
There is a great bit in here where Glen uses Font Style Matcher to create some CSS for a fallback font that has font-size, line-height, font-weight, letter-spacing, and word-spacing adjusted so perfectly that when the web font does load, the page hardly shifts at all. Like barely noticeable FOUT. Maybe we'll call it FOCST (Flash of Carefully Styled Text).

Poly Fluid Sizing
Fluid typography is pretty amazing. We have a writeup of how it all works. But as fancy as that is, it's still scaling the type linearly. What if we wanted the type size to fall along a curve? The math gets a bunch more complicated, but it's possible.
Jake Wilson digs in, and while he finds that calc() isn't quite up for the job (e.g. font-size: calc(3vw * 3vw); /* This doesn't work in CSS */), he does land …

Etsy’s Evolving Icon System
Etsy moves away from an icon font in production to using SVG. It's going to be an inline <svg> system, but abstracted as a &lt;etsy-icon> custom element for ease of use.
Two cents:

I could see the need for that abstraction going away if we had a more convient syntax for &lt;use> available, like: &lt;svg use="icons.svg#cart&quot; />
I like how dedicated they are to icon consistency. I struggle with this a lot. An SVG icon process can be so easy

Improving Your CSS with Parker
Harry Roberts has written about Parker, a stylesheet analysis tool by Katie Fenn. He explains why using tools like Parker are wonderfully helpful to developers:
I use Parker almost daily, and regularly go through it with my clients and workshop attendees. Parker surfaces some really interesting numbers, and if you know what they represent, you can draw some really valuable insights about your CSS from them.
Harry also describes a very important reason as to why developers might use …

Remove the outline from links on :active only | 456 Berea Street
