CSS Cheat Sheet

Below you will find an ever growing list of CSS cheats I come accross, find and record right here for all to find, use and do what you like with. If you know of any, please leave a comment and tell others. If you find an issue with any I have documented, then please let me know.

word-wrap: break-word;

Ok so it is MS only, and is a proprietary css "property", but it will break long words or URL’s in a paragraph so that it doesn’t break your design by pushing your borders and margins, or sticking over into other content.

selector {
height:auto !important;

This CSS works in IE6, IE7, Mozilla/Firefox/Gecko, Opera 7.x+, Safari1.2+
