HMTL 5, CSS3 and JavaScript for Windows 8 – Media Types

One of the key features we are going to be using in Windows 8 it is Media Types.

Media Types allows you to set different types of screens of devices. It is really useful to create full accessibility to your site, so for example, if the person which is going to read the site can’t see properly, we can use the tag braille next to @media, in that way, if this person has a special device capable of translating sites into braille, it will work.

Other useful case will be having to deal with mobile devices or especial screens, then we can use handheld or screen and (min-width:480px)

Some other properties can be used for different media types. For example, the "font-size" property can be used for both screen and print media, but perhaps with different values. A document usually needs a larger font-size on a screen than on paper, and sans-serif fonts are easier to read on the screen, while serif fonts are easier to read on paper.

Media Types

Media Type Description
all Used for all media type devices
aural Used for speech and sound synthesizers
braille Used for braille tactile feedback devices
embossed Used for paged braille printers
handheld Used for small or handheld devices
print Used for printers
projection Used for projected presentations, like slides
screen Used for computer screens
tty Used for media using a fixed-pitch character grid, like teletypes and terminals
tv Used for television-type devices

Example:
This example displays screen,print and custom screens for a mobile device:

<html>
<head>
<style>
@media screen
   {
   p.test {font-family:verdana,sans-serif;font-size:14px;}
   }
@media print
   {
   p.test {font-family:times,serif;font-size:10px;}
   }
@media screen,print
   {
   p.test {font-weight:bold;}
   }
@media screen and (min-width:200px) and (max-width:480px)
   {
      #navar{
       float: none;
       width: 200px;
      }
   }
@media screen and (min-width:480px)
   {
      #navar{
       float: left
       width: 500px;
      }
   }
</style>
