Overview

Ready to commit to using more CSS on your sites? If you are a hands-on learner who has been toying with CSS and want to experiment with real-world projects that will enable you to see how CSS can help resolve design issues,
this book is written just for you! CSS master Eric A. Meyer has picked up where Eric Meyer on CSS: Mastering the Language of Web Design left off. He has compiled 10 new, highly useful projects designed to encourage you to incorporate CSS into your sites and take advantage of the design flexibility, increased accessibility, decreased page weight, and cool visual effects CSS offers.

Each project is laid out in an easy-to-follow, full color format complete with notes, warnings, and sidebars to help you learn through example rather than theory. Some of the concepts covered include:

• Converting an HTML-based design to a pure positioning layout
• Styling a photo gallery
• Using background images to achieve cross-browser translucency effects
• Using lists of links to create tabs and drop down menus without the use of JavaScript
• Styling weblog entries, and placing them in a full-page design
• Creating a design for the CSS Zen Garden

The Barnes & Noble Review
For years, the experts have sworn by one CSS book: Eric Meyer on CSS. Now most web pros are using CSS -- and More Eric Meyer on CSS is the perfect follow-up. Its hands-on projects will help you use CSS in more projects, with more confidence.

Meyer starts with a project you’ll doubtless encounter (if you haven’t already): revamping a tables-based site for CSS. You’ll style photo collections, financial reports, and weblogs. You’ll build list-based and CSS-driven drop-down menus. You’ll learn how to create translucent effects that many CSS users thought were impossible; and build stunning tab-based layouts (not the “boxy” ones you’ve seen).

You’ve heard the claim that CSS can do just about anything: this book is proof. Bill Camarda
