Portlets developed using IBM® WebSphere® Portlet Factory should adhere to the design standards of other portlets provided by the portal server.
To ensure consistency in the appearance of the user interface, applications should use common style classes instead of inline style definitions. The style classes provided by IBM WebSphere Portal server are maintained in the file, styles_portlets.jspf
. The class names are the same as those suggested by the Web Services for Remote Portlets (WSRP) 1.0 specification to ensure consistency as portlets are ported across different portal implementations.
