Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: More Eric Meyer on CSS (Voices That Matter) (Paperback)
If you're a web designer you ought to know about standards. If you know about standards you need to know XHTML and CSS.
This book will teach you all about CSS in a practical series of demonstrations. You don't need to have read Eric's first book (Eric Meyer on CSS) to read this one, but if you have you might get into this one a little easier than if you havent.
Eric's style is informal but thorough, you get the impression that you're sitting at his side watching the master at work, solving problems. In this book you'll learn the basics right through to some very advanced 'tricks' such as pure CSS drop down menus (ones that work in ALL modern browsers, and yes, that includes the browser that is the thorn in Standards Compliance's side : Internet Explorer).
The book itself is entertaining and informative to read in its own right, but if you're going to follow along and do the projects yourself you'll learn even more. The style is easy and friendly with a clear explination for what's being done and pointers to potential problems or a new direction that could be taken.
If you need to figure out more about the benifit of CSS and what it can do take a look at [...] where you'll find one of the walk-thru projects covered in the book : a complete skin for the CSS Zen Garden project.
Worth getting no matter what your level of expertise (or not) in CSS. You'll learn a lot. Painlessly.
