For web application developers, do it make sense to list CSS/HTML (or any markup) on your CV, resume or LinkedIn profile?
It is useful when you are in starting level and small employers, do not require if you are in senior position and tring in big and MNC companies, because in big companies there is separate web designer and HTML developers are available to do that works.

How to make sure the CSS work fine with all browsers without eye testing on each broswer?

  1. Make sure you declare a doc-type.
  2. Use reset css.
  3. Avoid using width and padding(left and right) on the same element where you can.
  4. clean the code in HTML and css.
  5. Don't use margin left and right when floating elements and use its parent overflow:hidden, display:inline and height: 1% if the parent does not already have a height.
  6. Don't give an element both margin-top or margin-bottom but only margin-top or
    margin-bottom. Because margins of adjacent elements collapse into one another, making the positioning somewhat unpredictable for novices.
  7. Don't rely on z-index unless your scripting needs it.
