Overview

Cascading Style Sheets is an essential stylesheet language to designers who want their webpages to stand out among the trillions on the Web. In straightforward language, this book explains CSS. Author Mike McGrath begins with a brief history of Web design and then explains how style sheets determine the presentation of elements within HTML documents, and how CSS makes for a simpler and more streamlined HTML markup. Examples show how CSS rules control the appearance of text, content boxes, lists, tables, backgrounds, and how they can create dynamic effects. This updated edition covers Web 2.0 components and includes useful screenshots illustrating each aspect of CSS.

This book covers a nice introduction and somewhat advanced concepts to CSS. It doesn't cover all the little details but pretty much an overall handle on what CSS can do. You must know XHTML and what you want to CSS to do, to appreciate the examples in this book.

If you've got some spare time on your hands and you're looking for a quick introduction to CSS, then I'd recommend this book. I got it despite the negative reviews I've read on the Internet and I'm glad I did. The explanations were clear and easy to follow, screenshots of the CSS in action have captions that warn you of potential pitfalls that you should avoid, such as browser quirks. I've been using CSS for about a year now and I'm understanding other CSS books much easier now than I was before reading this book.

I gave this book my best shot, but ultimately found it very unreadable. While the book tries to follow some semblance of an outline, the author leaves out great gaping holes in his writing--jumping from one topic to another without any wrapup, symmetry or suitable lead-in to the next chapter. The author clearly isn't a writer, doesn't have a good sense of what it takes to write an 'In Easy Steps' book - this is not a book for beginners! I finally gave up on the book and settled for some online content.

This series is not a 'how-to' series, as I'm finding out. At the $9 price, this book, and all the others in the 'in easy steps' series, are more like expensive pamphlets. They are teasers- only making you wished you had spent the money and had bought a 'real' book instead.

It would be hard to imagine a more poorly written or edited text than this. It repeatedly uses terms prior to defining them and fails to give adequate cross-referencing to css code and final product. CSS just isn't that hard, but this book goes out of its way to make it as confusing as possible.
