About the Author

Chris Casciano started building web sites professionally in 1997 when web development meant working with tables and font tags, sticking to a "web safe" color pallette, and worrying about load times for those using dial-up modems. He is now working as freelance web developer, spending the last 9 years in the trenches architecting and building web sites for digital agencies and their clients. Throughout his career Chris has explored ways to implement emerging technologies like HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript in practical ways -- balancing the bleeding edge with the responsibilities of serving a diverse audience. His personal projects and writing have inspired industry leaders with projects like "Daily CSS Fun" in 2002 serving as inspiration for the popular "CSS Zen Garden". Since 2003, Chris has been an advocate for adoption of standards as a member of the Web Standards Project.

His personal web site, Place Name Here (http://placenamehere.com), now home to a blog covering both web development and his other passion of digital photography, has been online since 1998.

This is really an outstanding book on CSS that I fear will be overlooked by beginners. It doesn't necessarily teach CSS, but is fully aimed at beginners and is perhaps one of the best CSS books I own. Anyone interested in style sheets for the web will find this to be a treasure.
