Best to wait for next edition
on 22 April 2001
I bought this book hoping to be able to implement some of the more complex style sheet ideas. However, a lot has changed in the two years since this book was published and a lot of factors are missing from the text. There is very little given to positioning, mostly suggesting it is really only used for dynamic effects, rather than constructing the layout of a site.
Examples are quite thin on the ground, but those that exist are good. If you are new to style sheets I would say this book is very useful, but if you have been using them for a while there probably isn't that much you'll learn.
That said, I was able to learn more about the fundamentals of using stlye sheets and for that alone the book was worthwhile.
As has been stated there are some problems with the book layout, with incorrectly numbered references and missing spaces.
Best advice is to wait for the next edition which will hopefully concentrate more on CSS as a full presentation media and will have updated information on newer browsers.
