Using CSS with Java

I've not been posting very regularly since the start of the school year. That will change once my class starts doing Java. Whenever I teach Java I get lots of material for this blog. One question can make me realize how non-obvious a whole range of things are to new programmers.

Right now the class is working on developing web pages, you can see their first efforts, severely constrained by the available class time at CSS is one of the things we're working on, and this dovetails right into Java since you can use CSS with Java to style your user interfaces.

There's a nice tutorial with sample code showing how it works at Swing and CSS by Joshua Marinacci.
