The above links demonstrate a basic navigational structure using an unordered list styled with CSS. Use this as a starting point and modify the properties to produce your own unique look. If you require flyout menus, create your own using a Spry menu, a menu widget from Adobe's Exchange or a variety of other javascript or CSS solutions.

If you would like the navigation along the top, simply move the ul.nav to the top of the page and recreate the styling.



CGD Student Talent

CGD Students' work below highlight the diversity of their career goals. Their career goals range from architecture, interior design, mechanical engineering, product and jewlery design.

CAD Technology for Designers

CGD 2 and 4 provide computer skills to prepare paramtric models for designing and drafing products for industry. These courses are designed to articulate with transfer university courses required for varous engineeer and inductrial majors in technical drafting and design.

Engineering Design Skills

Students intersted in becoming mechanical engineers are required to be able to use programs, such Steves Mailboxgearsas SolidWorks, to explore and solve industry challenges. CGD prepares you for transfer and for your ‘first job’ by designing and trouble shooting open-ended, industrial projects. CGD projects enable you to work as an individual and with teams to follow the complete design process from ideation to realization. Access to extensive design, analysis, and problem solving parpares CGD students for success in engineering fields

Because all the columns are floated, this layout uses a clear:both declaration in the .footer rule. Armando's KitchenThis clearing technique forces the .container to understand where the columns end in order to show any borders or background colors you place on the .container. If your design requires you to remove the .footer from the .container, you'll need to use a different clearing method. The most reliable will be to add a <br class="clearfloat" /> or <div class="clearfloat"></div> after your final floated column (but before the .container closes). This will have the same clearing effect.

solar cupAn image placeholder was used in this layout in the .header where you'll likely want to place a logo. It is recommended that you remove the placeholder and replace it with your own linked logo.

Be aware that if you use the Property inspector to navigate to your logo image using the SRC field (instead of removing and replacing the placeholder), you should remove the inline background and display properties. These inline styles are only used to make the logo placeholder show up in browsers for demonstration purposes.

To remove the inline styles, make sure your CSS Styles panel is set to Current. Select the image, and in the Properties pane of the CSS Styles panel, right click and delete the display and background properties. (Of course, you can always go directly into the code and delete the inline styles from the image or placeholder there.)


By nature, the background color on any div will only show for the length of the content. This means if you're using a background color or border to create the look of a side column, it won't extend all the way to the footer but will stop when the content ends. If the .content div will always contain more content, you can place a border on the .content div to divide it from the column.
