    VERY VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Are you a web designer and/or developer who needs to work with CSS layouts? If you are, then this book is for you! Authors Rachel Andrew and Kevin Yank, have done an outstanding job of writing a book that takes stock of the current best practices methods that are being considered for CSS layout.<BR/><BR/><BR/>Andrew and Yank, begin by exploring the current problems with CSS layout techniques, as well as the mismatch between what designers want and what CSS provides. Next, the authors explain the current techniques that use absolute positioning and floated elements, and the complexity involved in getting them to work reliably. Then, they test the limits of what CSS tables can do, explore the edge cases, and deliver concrete solutions. They continue by showing you how that CSS table-based layouts are ready for prime time by providing practical solutions for supporting IE6 and 7. Finally, the authors take a look at three CSS3 modules for layout control: the multi-column layout module, the grid-positioning module, and the template layout module.<BR/><BR/><BR/>This most excellent book takes a good look at what's just around the corner with Internet Explorer 8. More importantly, this book has been written to inspire debate and experimentation in a time of change and development.
