5.0 out of 5 stars Foreword of the Year, 2006
...goes to Andy Clarke for getting Logan's Run and Battlestar Galactica into a book on Cascading Style Sheets.

The book is divided into two parts with Colly first introducing the reader to the basics of CSS before moving on to an in-depth look at layouts, usability and accessibility enhancements, tips and troubleshooting and the obligatory (great looking) case...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but out of date
I would have given this 4 stars but the content is well out of date now. In general, the topics are covered well, but the content is showing its age, having been written in 2006 and never revised since. It's not really relevant to to know about workarounds to support IE5.5 any more for example and the website page created in the exercises also looks very dated and...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to good CSS/XHTML practice, 12 Nov. 2009

This review is from: Beginning CSS Web Development: From Novice to Professional (Paperback)
An excellent book that stresses good, XHTML and CSS practice from the start. Very easy to read with examples available on line. I found that it was such a good read that the authors occasional advice to "go and have a cup of tea before moving on" was a very necessary reminder to take a break!

5.0 out of 5 stars good book, shame it's pre IE7, 4 Mar. 2007

This review is from: Beginning CSS Web Development: From Novice to Professional (Paperback)
This is an excellent book on CSS development if, like me you're a beginner to CSS layouts. It's freshing to read a book written with an English sense of humour. Sometimes I find American authors style a bit irritating.

Unfortunately this book was written before IE7 came out and some of the authors points are now irrelevant. e.g. IE now supports text re-size.

I tried some of the CSS layout techniques in chapt 10 with IE7 for the first time. They rendered perfectly in Firefox but in IE7 the images disappeared. They were just simple image and text layouts. Under pressure to deliver I went back to table based layout and it worked fine.

This is a very sensible and practical book but it won't solve all your browser compatibility struggles. That will only happen when MS puts more effort into building a standards compliant browser. For the time being, security is thier priority. Us developers must struggle on...

A very useful and easy to use book, much easier than trying to read from the screen while trying to create a website. Anyone can use this book and learn a new skill.

This review is from: Beginning CSS Web Development: From Novice to Professional (Paperback)
I already new a little about CSS design before reading this book but wanted a book that would give me a good knowledge of the fundamentals. This book was very easy to read (even made me laugh a few times), will give you a great base knowledge setting you up to delve further if you want to.
