Note: A new edition of this book has been released. Please look for "The CSS Anthology, 2nd Edition" (ISBN: 097584198X)
A practical guide on CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for professionals and novices, that can be used both as a tutorial and read cover-to-cover or as a handy and practical reference book to common problems, solutions and effects.
The Question and Answer format makes it easy for readers to solve their problems and learn more about common pitfalls and workarounds.
CSS has been growing steadily in its adoption as a technology. CSS gives the developer complete control over how an HTML page looks without using cumbersome HTML tags- truly separating content from presentation. Many major organizations have been adopting CSS technology e.g. www.wired.com.
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.
