This book serves as an excellent practical introduction to CSS. You are thrust straight into projects that make you appreciate how you could go about a real world solution. It does not explain the exact syntax of every element etc - get a CSS reference book for that. Although IE6 is by and large covered naturally, there were a couple of projects that did not look exactly as designed. There is a good website by the author mentioned in the book that seems to cover all errata so far discovered (as well as loads of other CSS bits and bobs) and I expect the IE6 problems will be addressed soon as I had a quick and constructive response from the publishers after reporting them. You will find important points repeated throughout the book - I found this only helps to make you remember fundamental CSS syntax or rules that would otherwise be forgotten. I found that the best way to use this book was to work through the projects one by one - you would otherwise miss out on solutions to problems that you would undoubtably come across sometime or the other in the future. I wish all IT subjects were available in this sort of format.
