Editorial Reviews

The Barnes & Noble Review
Q. If you could learn CSS from one person on Earth, who would it be? A. Eric Meyer -- and now you can.

If you've ever seen Lynda.com's Hands-On Training books, you know they're as personal as training gets without the classroom. You don't just get hands-on exercise files for every project: You get QuickTime training videos straight from a world-class expert. Meyer qualifies, big time. He created the original W3C test suite, ran the Internet's CSS mailing list, wrote the widely used CSS Browser Compatibility Charts, and hosted the Web's most advanced experimental site for CSS design. (He wrote the classic Eric Meyer on Design, too.)

Here, Meyer illuminates everything from simple floats to background properties, white space to captions, navbars to typography. There are full-color examples, 60-plus step-by-step tutorials, and tips galore: just as if Eric Meyer really were standing over your shoulder. Bill Camarda, from the January 2007 Read Only
