Product Description

Review

Everything You Know about CSS is Wrong! is worth buying if you use CSS for website layout. It describes several new CSS layout methods. It has made me think about these methods and when I might use them and that's a good thing. -- CVW Blog

Making me think differently about CSS tables is Rachel's aim in Everything You Know About CSS Is Wrong! As we'll see, she does a damn fine job. -- Andy Clarke

The sooner that IE8 can be adopted, the better, and these techniques can start to get a proper working out. Who knows, there may be a whole new raft of tricks that will arise as a result of these CSS table layout properties... -- Ian Lloyd

it is a good introduction to CSS tables, detailing the advantages and disadvantages. I might disagree with the underlying assumptions and Rachel and Kevin conclusions. However, it has got me thinking about using CSS tables to get certain outcomes in designs and then replicating the results in IE6 & IE7 using a conditional comment, a little CSS and JavaScript. -- Nick Cowie
