Matthew Inman has just posted an excellent CSS resource over at SEOmoz. For those of us who are not designers but are found frequently editing HTML and CSS, Inman's 15 CSS Properties You Probably Never Use (but perhaps should) is a great resource to be printed and filed away for frequent reference.

In this tutorial, Matthew provides both the CSS code and explanation for the following CSS properties:

  1. clip
  2. visibility
  3. text-shadow
  4. content
  5. quotes
  6. counter-reset and counter-increment
  7. marks
  8. page-break-before and page-break-after
  9. orphans and widows
  10. font-size-adjust
  11. font-stretch
  12. font-variant
  13. caption-side
  14. table-layout
  15. empty-cells
