When we released Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide in 2000, we believed CSS was poised to become a major force in web authoring -- and we were right. Since then, CSS has continued to mature as a standard, dozens of books have been published on the topic, and most recent browsers have at least partial support for CSS2 and excellent support for CSS1. CSS is the W3C-approved method for adding to and enriching the visual presentation of web documents. It allows web authors to mimic the sophisticated layout and pagination of desktop publishing with clean, easy-to-maintain scripts. This second edition of Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide completes the discussion of CSS2, explores CSS2.1, and introduces emerging elements of CSS3. Eric A. Meyer, now an even more respected expert on the subject of CSS, uses his trademark wit and humor to explore properties, tags, attributes, and implementation, as well as real-life issues, such as browser support and design guidelines. This book addresses experienced web authors and scripters, as well as novice authors who may be implementing CSS from scratch. Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide, Second Edition also includes a new foreword by Molly Holzschlag, a steering committee member for the Web Standards Project and one of the Top 25 Most Influential Women on the Web.

Eric A. Meyer has been working with the Web since late 1993. He is currently the Hypermedia Systems Manager for Digital Media Services at Case Western Reserve University, Eric has been called "an internationally recognized expert on the subjects of HTML and Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)," and he knows a thing or two about other aspects of Web design as well. He is an invited expert and member of the W3C CSS&FP Working Group, coordinates the W3C's CSS Test Suite, remains active on CSS newsgroups, and edits Web Review's Style Sheets Reference Guide. He does as much writing as he can without burning out, and also does his best to keep up with CSS support in popular Web browsers. If you have a taste for early jazz and swing, you can catch his weekly big band radio show over the Internet via WRUW-FM 91.1 in Cleveland. When not otherwise busy, Eric is usually bothering his wife Kat in some fashion.
