Home Forums CSS On-Page Dictionary in CSS Only? Re: On-Page Dictionary in CSS Only?


I would say no, that it’s not over your head ;) but you should probably iron out the basics of web markup before you try something like this. CSS is for layout – no text or content will be produced with it – it’s all about styling content. You could use PHP to help you populate that static box either with a text file that can be read line by line or with a database.

You may want to read up on the differences of CSS, HTML, and maybe Javascript and PHP and how they work together.
