I often come across books on web design that I think are not particularly well designed. So I was pleasantly surprised that, although the title "Cascading Style Sheets" sounded relatively boring next to titles such as "Sizzling Killer Web Sites that Make You Millions!", this book delivers and more. In fact, I think it's one of the most elegant technical books I have ever read. The writing is authoritative, clear and practical. And because the book's design and typography is so well-crafted and attractive, it's inspirational just flipping through its pages!

Good going, Guys!

Simply put, if you are interested in gaining more control over your web page and are up to learn CSS buy this book now. You just can't get any better. I'm writing the scripts up like they do with my own text and applying styles to it like they show and this really gets you in to it. The first day I had it, I wrote out a small simply script and came back the next day and had deleted the file, and wrote it all again from memory. This book is effective and amazing. All I can say is buy it now!

A great book to get started, but leaves one longing for more 11 Jun. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I powered through this book in one evening, which says three things about it: it's enlightening, easy to comprehend, and short. The chapters are organized logically, and the content of each is succinct and well supported with examples. I did notice some typos such as "margin-below" instead of the correct "margin-bottom," which will serve to confuse the novice, but overall, I felt it was an excellent purchase-one I reference often. One of the most helpful sections appears in the back, taking sites designed using traditional HTML means and converting them to more efficient style-sheet-enhanced sites. However, as I attempted to put some of these suggestions to use, I found that they didn't work as the authors purported. But I found the thought process behind the conversions enlightening.
Overall, I think this book offers the beginner a great introduction and the expert a excellent reference.
A solid introduction to Style Sheets 19 Nov. 1997
By Steven Savage - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent introduction to Style Sheets, the ways they are supposed to be implemented, and the logic behind them. There's little wasted space, just solid, useful information.
Each chapter focuses on a specific element or elements in an HTML document and how CSS alows one to alter the appearance of the elements. In general, the chapters are clear and concise, though the chapter on fonts and text formatting is a bit overwhelming. There are useful examples provided that are very helpful.

The only flaw in this book is that more examples of complex pages were needed, and the final chapters are largely focused on the future, tips, and miscellanea. More examples would have been appreciated.

I found this an excellent introduction to Style Sheets, despite some flaws. Well worth the price for any Webmaster wnating to stay knowledgeable.
Great Reference on CSS! 22 Aug. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are interested in learning about the Cascading Style Sheet spec., this is the book to get! Unlike the CSS docs on the Web, the text of this book is well-written, easy-to-understand and filled with lots of illustrations and examples.

However, the book suffers from the fact that despite the claims on the book's cover to the contrary that CSS is supported in Netscape Navigator and Internet Explorer, this is not entirely the case. IE and NN at present only support certain sub-sets of the CSS spec. As a result, you can't expect all of their code examples to work in either (or both) browsers. However, as Microsoft and Netscape (hopefully) come into line and adopt the spec., this problem will go away.

Well written, well presented, and bound to stay on my bookshelf at work as a handy reference for some time to come.

One very useful book 6 Nov. 1997
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This was the first book I read about CSS. After reading it I immediately wanted to write my first CSS enhanced web-page. Believe it or not: it worked out just the way I had intended.
This book is well written and well presented. But what I like most about it is that you can read it once and start writing your own CSS pages right away. It is so useful that I have two copies of it: one for work and for home!
