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. You’ll discover the great styling possibilities of CSS paired with semantic structures like Microformats and RDFa, while enriching the self-describing semantics of XHTML content. Learn how to group logically related declarations, minify style sheets, and prevent performance bottle necks such as reflows and repaints. 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.

What you’ll learn
  • Discover how to make use of CSS 2.1 alongside CSS3
  • Use CSS generated content to automatically number arbitrary elements and expose attribute metadata
  • Learn how to use CSS for print and mobile devices, as well as for presenting XML data
  • Uncover the techniques used to organize, manage, and apply CSS to large-scale projects
  • Learn how to optimize your CSS for better site performance

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.
