Publisher Comments:

With the latest generation of modern browsers expanding support for CSS 3, it is an exciting time in the CSS world. Featuring ten ready-to-use projects on the book's CD-ROM, this helpful reference dives into working code so you can rapidly master the increasingly diverse applications web designers can use with CSS, including some that previously could be done only with JavaScript.

Featuring in-depth explanations, these ten ready-to-use projects are easy to implement in your own projects. The description of each project enables you to understand and then modify it so you can reuse it in different situations. The code has been tested with several browsers including Mozilla Firefox 1.0, Opera 8, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 for Windows, and Safari 1.3 for Mac OS X.

These include (for example) tab-based navigation, dynamic drop-down menus, custom borders, and input forms. It is assumed that the reader has a fundamental knowledge of web programming languages such as CSS, XHTML, and JavaScript. The CD-ROM contains source code for all ten projects.
