The initial attempt was to compile the bunch of LESS files with: lessc less/* But then I got errors like: NameError: variable @line-height-computed is undef... The order of LESS files listed is important. Variables are defined in variables.less , so it should be listed first. For Bootstrap, the ordering is defined in bootstrap.less . So all you have to do is ( this is the right way ): lessc bootstrap.less bootstrap-compiled.css Just for the reference, this is the content of bpptstrap.css : /*! * Bootstrap v3.0.0 * * Copyright 2...

In an HTML page, elements can overlap because of position styles. When there's an overlap, elements coming later in the HTML code are displayed on the top. This can be altered by specifying z-index in the CSS. Elements with higher z-index are placed on the top. However , z-index only works for elements that are not static positioned. Static positioned elements are always at the bottom compared to relative , fixed and absolute positioned elements. This is a test page: <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <style t... Effects of z-index can be tested by adding it to the elements, for example: <div id="bg" class="big" style="z-index: 3"></div>...

If you think the JavaScript code below is simple, think again. Try it in different browsers and see if you can explain what you see. What is displayed in the browser window with this HTML page? <!doctype html> <html> <body> <p>befor... What is displayed inside the iframe? Try different browsers. <!doctype html> <html> <head> <style t...

It's probably more useful to make the JavaScript executor a bookmarklet. That way it gains access to the page on which it is invoked. Therefore, more helpful while debugging. Here's the code: <html> <body> <a href="javascript:(funct... Or, you can add this link to your bookmarks, name it "JS Executor". For a full featured JavaScript console, you may need Jash

I didn't know how hard it was to vertically align something to the middle until I had to do it. An excellent writeup about the various techniques (or should I say hacks?) to achieve this is here: http://blog.themeforest.net/tutorials/vertical-centering-with-css/ Here I present a technique with the help of jQuery. To make it simple, what I'm doing is to display a single line of text in the middle of the page instead of at the top. The markup is made simple because the logic is moved to JavaScript. There are two requirements to make this work: The parent container uses relative positioning jQuery code added to re-position the content with absolute positioning <!doctype html> <html> <head> <title>Vert... For some reason, the following code did not work although...

The code presented here is a simple implementation of a tab set. It is used to demo how a tab set could be implemented. The code is stand alone and does not depend on any JavaScript libraries. Multiple tab sets within the same page is supported. The HTML markup is fairly simple: Tabs sets are contained within a DIV element with class name "tabsContainer". Define a UL list for the tabs. Follow the UL list with equal number of DIVs for the tab contents. The Nifty Corners Cube technique is used to draw the rounded corners (original form, not the enhanced JavaScript form). HTML, CSS and JavaScript: <!doctype html> <html> <head> <style typ...

If you ever wonder how those "cool" dialog boxes are made, copy and paste the following code to a file and test it with your browser. This is probably the simplest code for such effects. If you don't know what I mean, try it anyway. <html> <head> <title>Test Overlay</ti...

The following page injects CSS rules with JavaScript. It works fine in Firefox and Chrome. <html> <head> <script type="text/javascrip... But in IE, it breaks with "Unknown runtime error" (seemed like it's trying to interpret the curly brackets in the CSS as JavaScript blocks!): In order to make it work in IE, the code need to be changed to: <html> <head> <script type="text/javascrip... The tricks to identify IE and insert new CSS rules came from Paul Irish .

By default, heights for jQuery UI tab panels expand or contract depending on the height of each tab. The code snippet here sets the height of all tabs to be equal to that of the container. <!DOCTYPE html> <html> <head> <title>jQu...
