Comments about oreilly The CSS Anthology:

Very objective reference about CSS. The book has a small introduction on CSS's Structure and part immediately for practical examples.

The subjects are boarded in the book: Positioning CSS, columns in CSS, creation of alternative style, forms presentation, presentation and interaction of tabular data, effects in links, lists effects and image positioning.

I liked a lot of the book structure. It is divided into questions and answers and provides the sensation that you are talking directly with the author. Each question is followed by the solution and some has discussion. The discussion even deepens the subject carrying to the extra reader knowledges as problems with browsers, other properties values, codes optimization and hacks. Most answers own very interesting examples with simple and complex structures.

The book chapters are divided by elements HTML and CSS's special techniques. Each starts with a brief introduction on the subject and then it goes to the questions and solutions about the main needs to webdesigner. The book also owns some JavaScripts who complete the needs to interaction.
