Subject Re: Default Tapestry page CSS
Date Wed, 03 Jan 2007 05:09:15 GMT
This sounds like it would be good in general, but I have some
misgivings about doing ~too~ much styling. (ie I noticed your body
specifier )

Dojo does a lot of this on some widgets and it has been disastrous.
(Tab / combobox are probably the worst offenders )

Of course if it is just for normal things like styling a component
being used (like error handling ? ) or whatever then it's probably no
big deal. I'd just be careful with things as overarching as doing a
body { } definition.

My head is a little in the sand here though, have you seen other
examples where default css rules have been something people really
liked in other frameworks/etc ?

Don't get me wrong, I do think it's a good idea ...It just seems like
the kind of thing that could easily stay in the extreme realm of being
loved / despised, depending on how it's done.
