Stunning CSS3: A project-based guide to the latest in CSS by Zoe Mickley Gillenwater

CSS3 adds powerful new functionality to the web’s visual style language to help you create beautiful and engaging designs more easily than ever. With CSS3, you can create eye-catching visual effects such as semitransparent backgrounds, gradients, and drop shadows without using images; display text in beautiful, unique, non-web-safe fonts; create animations without Flash; and customize a design to the user’s unique device or screen size without JavaScript.

You’ll learn how to accomplish these effects and more by working through a series of practical yet cutting-edge projects. Each chapter walks you through standalone exercises that you can integrate into projects you’re working on, or use as inspiration. You’ll learn all of the most popular, useful, and well-supported CSS3 techniques, plus:

  • How to use CSS3 to enhance your pages, not just in terms of looks, but also in terms of usability, accessibility, and efficiency
  • When and how to provide workarounds and fallbacks for older, non-supporting browsers
  • How to create stunning designs with unique typography and beautiful graphic details
  • Advanced new selectors to streamline your markup and make it less prone to human errors
  • New methods for creating multiple-column layouts
  • How to quickly and easily create mobile-optimized web designs without using scripting

This book is designed for moderately experienced web designers who want to take their skills to a higher level by applying the enhanced web designing techniques and procedures that this book so aptly teaches and demonstrates. By using clear and compelling examples,most competent and ambitious web designers can readily apply the stunning lessons that are given in each chapter of this book successfully and achieve impressive results. Nervous novice web-designers be warned, if you cannot even understand the terms and topics that are listed in this book's table of contents, this book is definitely not designed for your current skill level and aptitudes.
