Professional CSS: Cascading Style Sheets for Web Design, 2nd Edition

Focusing on the best-practices aspect of web development, this full-color book is revised to reflect the changes to cascading style sheets (CSS) development procedures since the first edition was published. Featuring examples from real-world web sites, each chapter provides easily digestible CSS tips and techniques that were used for a specific site. The chapters document the designer's process from start to finish and provide insight as to how the designers overcame each site's unique set of challenges as well as ways they would have done things differently.

Offering a hands-on look into designing standards-based, large-scale, professional-level CSS web sites, this unique book presents understandable solutions to common problems and offers an intelligible approach to effectively developing CSS-enabled designs at a professional level.
