Overview

So you think you know CSS? Take your CSS skills to the next level and learn to write organized and optimized CSS that will improve the maintainability, performance, and appearance of your work.

You’ll learn how document flow and CSS positioning schemes will help you make your documents more accessible.

With support for CSS enjoying unprecedented ubiquity, you can finally use such features as generated content, complex selector chains, and CSS3’s visual properties, like box-shadow, in your projects.

    CSS done right should always be the focus

    This book gives a good overview of CSS that has been already establish and gives a reader like myself, who has been around CSS for a while, a push to recall those good old tricks and reapply those I have forgotten to be useful.

    It seamlessly integrates good standards and practices along with new CSS3 and HTML 5 ideas that will boost any designers skills, giving the reader an understanding of what should be used and on what browsers.

    CSS is changing for the better and becoming more advanced, giving us more choices in how to apply our designs and I think this book helps keep you ahead of the curve.
