The Barnes & Noble Review
The first CSS “recipe” you steal from CSS Cookbook will pay for the book several times over. After that, it will all be gravy.

So which one would you like to start with? A recipe for setting initial caps or creating pull quotes? For creating rollovers without JavaScript? Placing background images or page borders? Changing list formats? Creating form buttons? Creating printer-friendly pages? Hiding styles from (arrgh!) Netscape 4.x, or CSS rules from (arrgh!) IE5/Mac? Add 75 more recipes, and you’ve got the drift.

Each chapter includes a complete sample design. You’ll find them for typography, controlling page elements, links/navigation, lists, forms, tables, page layouts, printing, and more. If you want to do CSS right, but you’re on a deadline, this can’t be beat. Bill Camarda
