Clean up Your CSS

fix css code

The cleancss web tool takes you CSS (or CSS on an existing website) and cleans it up while giving you a lot of choices about how it does this. Why would you want to do this?…

Well for two reasons mainly. It helps you get smaller CSS file sizes and better written code. The way the optimizer works actually lets you decide how much compression you want. From super compressed (virtually unreadable and editable by a human being) to visually pleasing. I prefer the standard setting because it gives you a little of both.

Free Flash Banners

create a free flash banner online

Bannersnack gives you a configurable template style tool to create animated Flash banners. The free versions are watermarked though a fee of $9 will remove it. That’s considerably cheaper than hiring a Flash designer. If you have the money, a good designer will always outperform a free service like this, but if you are on a tight budget this may be a great option for you.
