I have been doing a lot of CSS work and it is all going pretty well. The main thing to do is:
- read up on a LOT of CSS to find out what your options are.
- use firebug to track down what needs to be changed and test how to change it.
- alter the css file or the inline css. inline css can often be changed from within drupal if you have a content type with some text. The title text on the SS below uses inline css that i added via the “source” button of the CKEditor module on that particular piece of content.
- subtheme all your css files by copying the ones you need into your subtheme directory, making sure to note their existence in the .info file for your subtheme.
