PE: Decorating Your Profile
Community Week
Your profile page is the first thing people will see when they click on your name, so it's very important to leave a good impression! This article will provide some useful tips and tricks for both premium and non-premium members who want to convert their profile into their own, unique page. First off, some Do's and Don'ts of profile decoration:
Use dA's profile widgets-- there are lots of great options to chose from
Show off some art (that's what people are here for!)
Express your personality through colors, stamps, gifs, etc.

Add so many images that your profile takes forever to load
Use garish or headache-inducing colors
Make text difficult to read with dark backgrounds
Non-Premium Widgets
While many widgets are restricted or locked for non-premium members, there are still a variety of great widgets that you can add to your profile, even without a membership.

CSS Tricks: Fonts and Text Basics
Today I want to talk about fonts in journal skins :XD: You probably saw this one coming :giggle: And maybe you also saw coming that this will be a rather long tutorial :faint: There is just a lot to say about this! Actually this will only be the first one about fonts and text. This one will cover the basics of working with fonts.
I will start by talking a bit about web-safe fonts and the concept behind a fallback hierarchy. Further down you'll find a selection of properties that can be styled with examples and explanations.
So, let's go! :eager:
The standard web safe fonts
A font is defined as web safe when it is installen on a great number of user's computers. They are also called system fonts, and can vary depending on your PC. Fonts on a Mac OS are not necessarily the same as fonts on a Windows OS.
Here's is a little example: on the left side is an image, an image created in PS on the right side. If both sides look the same, or at least very similar, it means they a

Compact embedded player [v4]
Tutorial has been updated three times
Changelog in the description
A quick guide to embedding of compact video players :dummy:
The "compact" I mean player that embedded only for music (in case when you don't care about video or don't want it to take too much space in your custom box or journal).
Here's an example:

Default embedded youtube player (<da:embed profile="youtube" id="NWd5x09gWoE">):
[text valign] [text valign]

And compact version (see the code below):
[text valign]
[text valign]

How it works:
<container with overflow:hidden>
   <spacer with necessary height>
   <video with position:absolute, bottom:0>
Actual code:
<div class="pagination f sitback-container talk-post popup2-clear">
