CSS and Documents
Publisher: O'Reilly Media
Final Release Date: September 2012
Pages: 19

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a powerful tool that transforms the presentation of a document or a collection of documents, and it’s spread to nearly every corner of the Web—as well as many non-web environments. In this free introduction to Cascade Style Sheets, you’ll learn how CSS makes it possible for you to completely change the way document elements are presented by a user agent. You’ll discover the origins of this specification and how CSS styles work with HTML.

Learn how you can choose style sheets based on the features of a given media type, including desktop screens, web-enabled phones, digital projectors, TVs, Braille devices, print documents, and even various audio renderings of a document. CSS and Documents is an excerpt from the forthcoming 4th edition of CSS: The Definitive Guide.

    I thought this was a great intro into css and a great overview. It is a short read and free. Eric Meyer does an excellent job explaining the basics and it is well worth the read.

    Comments about oreilly CSS and Documents:

    That's a very short (19p) introduction to some new features in HTML5. Nothing really strong, but some interest hooks to look forward.

    Fast to read, esay to understand. Free. Good start before Google. Or heavier books.

      Comments about oreilly CSS and Documents:

      Eric Meyer thoroughly describes the details in an easy to understand way so it's an entertaining read. There's not much in it you'll need in day-to-day work which is understandable since it'S probably the intro chapter of the complete CSS book.
