Exceptionally Negative
Using negative margins on an element can at times be the easiest way to "nudge" it out from the rest, treating the exception to the rule in order to simplifiy code. (May 2005)
CSS Centering 101
"How do I center a fixed-width layout using CSS?" Find out how. (September 2004)

Slant-separated navigation that is flexible and accessible. (July 2004)

Magic Icons for Lazy People
A neat trick for creating one set of icons that changes color with a simple CSS update. (July 2003)
CSS Mini-Tabs

Using background-image to stylize heading tags and lists. An easy, but smart way to keep non-essential images out of your markup. (June 2003)
