The CSS Anthology : 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks

by Rachel Andrew

A practical guide on CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for professionals and novices, that can be used both as a tutorial and read cover-to-cover or as a handy and practical reference book to common problems, solutions and effects. The Question and Answer format makes it easy for readers to solve their problems and learn more about common pitfalls and workarounds.

CSS has been growing steadily in its adoption as a technology. CSS gives the developer complete control over how an HTML page looks without using cumbersome HTML tags- truly separating content from presentation. Many major organizations have been adopting CSS technology e.g. www.wired.com.

Book News, Inc. says:
      "Web developers use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to format website elements such as colors, background images, fonts, margins and indentation without having to rely only on on hand-coded HTML tags--which may very well be a career-limiting operation if not a dead bore because the same tag information has to be repeated over and over again.

Andrew, a director of a web solutions provider company, gets you started with a brief overview and then proceeds to text styling, images, navigation, tabular data, forms and user interfaces, browser and device support, positioning and layout, and closes with possible future technologies. She delivers her material in a question-and-answer format, with plentiful figures and examples--a clear, concise, and easily understandable presentation.

Reviewer: Jack D. Herrington (CA, U.S.) says:
      There are a lot of CSS books on the market. This book stands out in the field because of it's real world examples and practical advice. So many books have esoteric examples of pages you would never find in the wild. This book has elegant examples that show you not only what you can do, but also guide you towards what you should do.
