One of the most powerful mechanisms available to you as a stylesheet developer is the creation and use of property sets. Property sets help you abstract formatting needs into reusable components.
Want consistent level 1 headers? Create a property set that you can use every time your stylesheet encounters a level one header, without coding it over and over again or copying and pasting formatting code?
Property sets are the keys to the reusable kingdom for a stylesheet. In this session, we’ll talk about the power of property sets and show you how to use them.
