Publisher Comments:

This book is your indispensable guide to cutting-edge CSS developmentall you need to work your way up to CSS professional. You'll learn how to: Plan, organize, and maintain your stylesheets more effectively Apply the secrets of liquid, elastic, and hybrid layouts Create flickr-style image maps, remote rollovers, and other advanced CSS features Lay out forms using pure CSS Recognize common browser bugs, and how to fix them While CSS is a relatively simple technology to learn, it is a difficult one to master. When you first start developing sites using CSS, you will come across all kinds of infuriating browser bugs and inconsistencies. It sometimes feels like there are a million and one different techniques to master, spread across a bewildering array of websites. The range of possibilities seems endless and makes for a steep and daunting learning curve. 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 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. It begins with a brief recap of CSS fundamentals such as the importance of meaningful markup, how to structure and maintain your code, and how the CSS layout model really works. With the basics out of the way, each subsequent chapter details a particular aspect of CSS-based design. Through a series of easy-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. Summary of Contents: Chapter 1: Setting the Foundations Chapter 2: Visual Formatting Model Recap Chapter 3: Background Images and Image Replacement Chapter 4: Styling Links Chapter 5: Styling Lists and Creating Nav Bars Chapter 6: Styling Forms and Data Tables Chapter 7: Layout Chapter 8: Hacks and Filters Chapter 9: Bugs and Bug Fixing Case Study 1: More Than Doodles Case Study 2: Tuscany Luxury Resorts

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.

This is the second edition of the 27,000 selling (on Bookscan) CSS Mastery. It brings the old book up to date with information on CSS 3 and modern browser standards. It also includes completely new case study chapters and new examples.

Synopsis:

Building on what made the first edition a bestseller, CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions, Second Edition unites the disparate information on CSS-based design spread throughout the internet into one definitive, modern guide. Revised to cover CSS3, the book can be read from front to back, with each chapter building on the previous one. However, it can also be used as a reference book, dipping into each chapter or technique to help solve specific problems. In short, this is the one book on CSS that you need to have.

This second edition contains: New examples and updated browser support information New case studies from Simon Collison and Cameron Moll CSS3 examples, showing new CSS3 features, and CSS3 equivalents to tried and tested CSS2 techniques What you?ll learn The best practice concepts in CSS design. The most important (and tricky) parts of CSS Identify and fix the most common CSS problems How to deal with the most common bugs Completely up to date browser support information Covers CSS3 as well as CSS2 showing you the future of CSS Who this book is for

This book will be aimed towards intermediate web designers/developers, although the examples should be simple enough for novice designers/developers with a basic understanding of CSS to grasp. Readers will probably have read beginner/intermediate instructional books such asWeb Standards Solutions and will be looking for more practical and in-depth information. This book is likely to have a broad appeal, attracting intermediate developers wanting to improve their skills as well as advanced developers wanting a useful reference.

The CSS 2/3 content of the book is delivered in a way that allows readers to learn CSS2 techniques that they can implement now in professional work, and then gem up on CSS3 techniques if they want to start looking towards the future.
