The web development community has gradually uncovered the best ways to solve all kinds of problems with CSS and HTML. Now, Michael Bowers has brought these optimal "design patterns" together in one place: Pro CSS and HTML Design Patterns. Bowers' solutions run the gamut, helping you improve design control, site maintainability, standards support -- and, especially, your own productivity and sanity.
There are a whopping 300 design patterns here, all created by combining common CSS properties, elements, and positioning. (So if you're reasonably comfortable with HTML and CSS, there's nothing in here you can't do.) What's covered? Just about everything: block, positioned, floated, and inline layouts; text styling; backgrounds and borders; blocks; lists; images; tables; table columns; drop caps, callouts, quotes, and alerts; images; navigation; forms; even accessibility. If you're a web designer or developer, this is your next indispensable book. Bill Camarda, from the June 2007 Read Only
