Elements can be classified into two main CSS groups; these two groups are replaced and non-replaced. Elements can differ substantially in how they are presented depending on which group they belong to. Most HTML and XHTML elements belong to the nonreplaced group; in this group, an element’s content is viewed by the user agent within a box created by the element itself. Most elements in HTML and XHTML are nonreplaced elements, such as paragraphs, lists, table cells and headings.
There are two main kinds of element display roles in CSS3; inline-level and block-level. Every CSS3 display values land in either one of these two types. Because not all properties are applied to both types of roles, it is essential to learn which role a box is associated with.

A sequence of numbers on a film that start after the emulsion type. Once a film is created, every batch receives a number so one can shoot a single sequence with any one of the batches. Combing batches in the past was more difficult because frequently the emulsion batches could be “off” which of course affected the visible effect in the film. However, mixing emulsion batches is not such a bad thing nowadays because emulsion batches have become more consistent. However, they can still be a little off today. The ideal way is to shoot a single sequence with one particular batch.
A term that refers to the make-up of a film’s emulsion. An emulsion may be designed to be slow, grainy, fine, full of color, white and black, fast, tungsten….etc. Each emulsion’s type is signified by a number. For instance, Fuji uses 250D to represent that the film contains an emulsion that is daylight balanced film with an exposure index of 250. Certain emulsion types are more desirable than others based upon one’s end purpose of the film. It is often best to stick to one emulsion type when shooting a single unbroken sequence.

Lacking a particular enzyme can result in a host of problems due to the lack of chain reactions that the enzyme is responsible for starting. An example of the importance an enzyme plays is when someone is lactose intolerant; such a person lacks the enzyme in his/her stomach to break down milk sugar, causing uncomfortable symptoms to result.
A term describing a type of bone convex form, an epicondyle is a bump located by a condyle.
Refers to the equation that governs the horizontal layout of absolutely positioned elements. The equation that determines the width of the containing block is as follows: vertical scrollbar width + left + margin-left + border-left-width + width + padding-right + padding-left + border-right-width + margin-right + right.
Refers to the equation that governs the vertical layout of absolutely positioned elements. The equation that determines the height of the containing block is as follows: horizontal scrollbar height + top + margin-top + border-top-width + height + padding-bottom + padding-top + border-bottom-width + margin-bottom + bottom.

Expressionism (1905-1925) is a movement characterized by exaggeration and distortion in order to create an emotional impact. It did not just affect the visual arts, but it also affected other disciplines such as literature, theatre, cinema and dance. The aim of the movement in art was to try to visually express subjective emotions and responses experienced by the artist from the events and forms around him. He does this through the use of manipulating art elements in volatile ways, exaggeration, fantasy, primitivism, and distortion. The reproduction of the visible world were not the aim of the movement; rather, the artist’s own individuality was of the utmost in important in recreating the true meaning of the things according to HIS sensibilities. Expressing something intensely was key. Key artists of the movement include: Max Beckmann, Otto Dix, Lionel Feininger, George Grosz, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner, August Macke, andinsky, Emil Nolde, Max Pechstein, Oskar Kokoschka, Alfred Kubin, and Edvard Munch.

Artists that draw inspiration from the physical world around them are externally focused. Drawing what is around them is often the first thing people do to start developing as artists, and they may continue to be externally focused as artists for the rest of their lives. However, in time they may change and become more internally focused. Approaching art with an external focus creates objective art - art that is perceived rather than art that is subjective - stemming from the mind or heart.
Part of the torso, the external oblique is on the body’s ribs where they join up with the cartilages. The lateral edge of the rectus abdominis is attached to the medial edge through the use of a tendon that covers the latter muscle. The external oblique allows the ribcage to rotate from side to side. The left external oblique pushes the ribcage causing the left shoulder to move to the front; this works the same way for the right external oblique. It is also responsible for bending the lower part of the spine side to side.

Eye level refers to the height a viewer’s eyes are positioned in relation to the ground. There are various eye levels. For example, lying down creates a very low eye level, and standing on a mountain creates a very high eye level for the viewer. One’s eye level usually is the same thing as the horizon line. In one and two point perspective, the vanishing points are located on the eye level.
