In the previous blog entries I showed you how to create an ADF project that uses the new Alta UI and then showed you an example of implementing one of the design patterns for a flip card. In this blog/video I'm going to show you how you can further fine tune the look and feel of your Alta application by modifying and extending your skin with CSS.

At the end of the day, this is going to be done in a similar way to how you skinned previous ADF applications. (If you have never done this before, you might want to watch the videos in these two blog entries).
