Overview

Pro CSS and HTML Design Patterns is a reference book and a cookbook on how to style web pages using CSS and XHTML. It contains 350 ready–to–use patterns (CSS and XHTML code snippets) you can copy and paste into your code. Each pattern can be combined with other patterns to create an unlimited number of solutions.

Each pattern works reliably in all major browsers without the need for browser hacks.

The book’s layout, with a pattern’s example on the left page and its explanation on the right, makes it easy to find a pattern and study it without having to flip between pages. The book is also readable from cover to cover, with topics building carefully upon previous topics.

A software developer can use this book to learn CSS for the first time. A designer familiar with CSS can use this book to master CSS and XHTML. If you are completely new to coding or completely new to CSS and XHTML, you may want to read an introductory book on CSS and XHTML first.

You can interact with all the examples in the book at www.cssDesignPatterns.com.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
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
