Handcrafted CSS: More Bulletproof Web Design (Book)
This is a different kind of CSS book.  It takes the approach that there's a real connection between craftsmanship and Web design. Handcrafted CSS gives frustrated Web designers the ammo they need to convince their clients and bosses to adopt innovative and effective CSS techniques that make their lives easier while improving the end user's experience. This book offers designers a transitional approach that teaches them when it's OK to push the envelope a bit, how best to do it, and when not to.

The book's seven chapters deconstruct various aspects of a case-study Web site, focusing on aspects that make it bulletproof and demonstrate progressive enrichment techniques over more traditional labor-intensive methods. Subjects include building for unanticipated future use; progressively enriching designs using CSS3 properties that work today; the magic and flexibility of using RGB color with an alpha channel; modular float management, crafting flexible frameworks; fluid layouts using grid-based design principles; and craftsmanship details on typography, jQuery, and shifting backgrounds.

Handcrafted CSS: Bulletproof Essentials (DVD)

This video, created and presented by Dan Cederholm, builds on the techniques and ideas in the book and takes the viewer further along the path to discovering how CSScraftsmanship applies to Web design. The video uses a fictional case study and covers the following topics: Color, Typography, and Microformats.

    Well Presented Thoughts on Cascading Style Sheets

    Dan Cederholm does a good job of presenting the argument for not worrying about old versions of web browsers. At the same time he presents a simple, straightforward CSS framework as the starting point for building good websites. The framework is much more simple that frameworks from Yahoo and Google in that it doesn't try to handle all things but rather gives you a basis that won't trip you up.

    I particulary liked the flow chapter by Ethan Macotte also. Highly recommended I keep referring back to the book when ever I try to get too tricky.
