FSS Feature Roadmap

Work In Progress

This document is a work-in-progress.

The Fluid Skinning System is a group of CSS files with a specially designed modular structure and class-specific format.

It is meant to work well as both a standalone CSS foundation for your site and our components, and as the CSS engine of the (Floe) UI Options (2008-2009) component.

Please see Fluid Skinning System (FSS) for more an in-depth overview.

Current Features

With FSS and (Floe) UI Options (2008-2009), we are attempting to fulfil at least 2 requirements:

  • How can the user control the appearance of our components and/or a website to make it more usable for them?
  • How can we deliver a look-n-feel for our components?

Currently, FSS contains:

  1. Wrappers and containers for quickly laying out your page, such as:
    • fixed or flexible columns and page containers
    • mixed column layouts
  2. Convenience class names to quickly and easily create GUI elements such as :
    • Tabs
    • Menus
    • Icons
    • Widgets
  3. Basic font handling
    • convenience class names for font family, size, and formatting
  4. Theming
  5. Advanced Accessibility
    • easy page linearization
    • tested for useabiltity effectiveness
    • works with assistive technology by encouraging best coding practices
  6. Documentation & Testing
    • A tutorial
