Review

“…perfect for people who are starting to use CSS…” (oraclehome.co.uk, October 2005)

From the Back Cover

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a standard for Web site presentation that allows Web developers to define styles for all the visual aspects of a Web document. This example-packed book provides you with necessary information that will enable you to combine CSS with HTML, XHTML, or XML to create rich, aesthetically powerful designs.

You'll start by reviewing the background of CSS, followed by a discussion of the tools required to create and test Web pages, a look at the basic syntax used in CSS, and an examination of how CSS comes together with markup to create a Web page. Then you'll examine how CSS controls different aspects of markup in a Web document. Along the way, you'll end each chapter with exercises and sample solutions that will help you grasp the CSS level 1, 2, 2.1, and 3 specifications.

What you will learn from this book

  • How to choose the right document for a project
  • Why the Document Type Declaration (DTD) is important to the CSS designer
  • Ways to manipulate the presentation of fonts
  • Ways to manipulate text and fonts
  • The four different types of positioning: static, relative, absolute, and fixed
  • Various ways of styling for tables, XML, print, and handheld devices
  • Techniques to make a CSS design compatible with Internet Explorer

Who this book is for This book is for beginning Web developers and designers who want to use CSS for better, faster design and markup. Basic familiarity with HTML is helpful, but not required.

4.0 out of 5 stars There might be better books now, but this is a staple July 26 2010

This book is a great CSS reference. I'm sure it's a little outdated, but most of it is still applicable today. I actually bought two copies. One for me and another for an elderly lady designing a Church website. Here's an example of how good of a book this is. Using only this book, she made a killer, standards compliant website. To give you an idea of how good her technical skills are, well, she called me and we spent an hour over the phone teaching her how to use an FTP client to upload the site!
3.0 out of 5 stars Okay for Old Edition March 17 2014

I liked this edition over the new one. There is still much unnecessary verbiage. Somebody needs to tell these guys they are not good writers. Their job is to teach a technical subject. Maybe involve some technical writers who work on developing educational materials--the ones they cut all the fluff out of.
