While most books concentrate on basic skills, this one is different, assuming that you already know the basics and why you should be using CSS in your work, and concentrating mainly on advanced techniques.

Through a series ofeasy-to-follow tutorials, you will learn practical CSS techniques you can immediately start using in your daily work. Browser inconsistencies are the thorn in most CSS developers' sides, so we have dedicated two whole chapters to CSS hacks, filters, and bug fixing, as well as looking at image replacement; professional link, form, and list styling; pure CSS layouts; and much more. All of these techniques are then put into practice in two beautifully designed case studies, written by two of the world's best CSS designers, Simon Collison and Cameron Moll.

Synopsis:

By bringing all of the latest tips, tricks, and techniques together in one handy reference, this book demystifies the secrets of CSS and makes the journey to CSS mastery as simple and painless as possible. While most books concentrate on basic skills, this one concentrates mainly on advanced techniques, assuming that readers already know the basics.

Synopsis:

These days, web designers and developers take more care in designing and building web sites. Less readily do they turn to old-fashioned techniques such as GIF spacers, tables for layout, and deprecated HTML elements, which can cause accessibility/usability problems and are just bad practice. There are three main web standards married together to create usable, standards-compliant web designs-XHTML for data structure, JavaScript for dynamic effects, and Cascading Style Sheets for styling your data.
This book covers advanced Cascading Style Sheet techniques, and it is recommended that you have some knowledge of CSS and web design basics before reading this book. Included are all the techniques you need to master CSS and craft modern, standards-compliant web page designs. We don't bore you with pages of theory; instead, we jump straight into practical solutions, allowing you to get what you need as quickly as possible.
Renowned web designer Andy Budd starts off by introducing the elements of an effective CSS toolkit, including good working practices, the cascade, the box model, relative and absolute positioning, floating, and more. He then delves into advanced techniques like replacing images, styling links and lists, creating navigation menus, making forms look good, debugging and overcoming browser quirks, and hacking and filtering. The book is rounded off with two case studies to give you inspiration for your own designs, written by two more of the world's finest web designers, Simon Collinson and Cameron Moll.
