Good reference

Comments about oreilly CSS Pocket Reference, 3rd Edition:

The CSS Pocket Reference is very complete for CSS 1.0 and 2.1. Sadly enough it does not contain CSS 3.0 references yet, but I'm sure the next version will.

I must agree with one of the reviews below, that I missed the guide words at the top of the pages, but the index in the back of the book covers for it quite well.

One other thing I liked quite well is that the book tells you with what browser the CSS will work. Downside to that is that it doesn't tell what version. It just says Internet Explorer, but not if it'll work with 5.5, 6.0 or 7.0

All together I can conclude that this is a very good reference. It's more complete and easier than the W3Schools website. It's easy to use and very complete.

Excelent Book

What can I say? Its the CSS reference to have. The only problem I have, and maybe I am just blind, is the chart showing every element and cross browser compatibility -- because its not there!
