Description

Web site design has grown up. Unlike the old days, when designers cobbled together chunky HTML, bandwidth-hogging graphics, and a prayer to make their sites look good, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) now lets your inner designer come out and play. But CSS isn't just a tool to pretty up your site; it's a reliable method for handling all kinds of presentationfrom fonts and colors to page layout. CSS: The Missing Manual clearly explains this powerful design language and how you can use it to build sparklingly new Web sites or refurbish old sites that are ready for an upgrade.

Like their counterparts in print page-layout programs, style sheets allow designers to apply typographic styles, graphic enhancements, and precise layout instructions to elements on a Web page. Unfortunately, due to CSS's complexity and the many challenges of building pages that work in all Web browsers, most Web authors treat CSS as a kind of window-dressing to spruce up the appearance of their sites. Integrating CSS with a site's underlying HTML is hard work, and often frustratingly complicated. As a result many of the most powerful features of CSS are left untapped. With this book, beginners and Web-building veterans alike can learn how to navigate the ins-and-outs of CSS and take complete control over their Web pages' appearance.

Author David McFarland (the bestselling author of O'Reilly's Dreamweaver: The Missing Manual) combines crystal-clear explanations, real-world examples, a dash of humor, and dozens of step-by-step tutorials to show you ways to design sites with CSS that work consistently across browsers. You'll learn how to:

* Create HTML that's simpler, uses less code, is search-engine friendly, and works well with CSS

* Style text by changing fonts, colors, font sizes, and adding borders

* Turn simple HTML links into complex and attractive navigation bars-complete with CSS-only rollover effects that add interactivity to your Web pages

* Style images to create effective photo galleries and special effects like CSS-based drop shadows

* Make HTML forms look great without a lot of messy HTML

* Overcome the most hair-pulling browser bugs so your Web pages work consistently from browser to browser

* Create complex layouts using CSS, including multi-column designs that don't require using old techniques like HTML tables

* Style Web pages for printing

Unlike competing books, this Missing Manual doesn't assume that everyone in the world only surfs the Web with Microsoft's Internet Explorer; our book provides support for all major Web browsers and is one of the first books to thoroughly document the newly expanded CSS support in IE7, currently in beta release.

Want to learn how to turn humdrum Web sites into destinations that will capture viewers and keep them longer? Pick up CSS: The Missing Manual and learn the real magic of this tool.

Still problems

:
Still major problems after the update. Example code that is indented runs off the page and is truncated even in landscape mode. Check out section 3.8 to see what I am talking about.

Particularly in a book like this, if you can't read everything that is supposed to be there, you're not getting your money's worth.

4/5 stars

Great book to learn CSS. Some bugs though..

:
Great book, good details. Even goes over HTML for beginners. Very good style to learn with. Only problem, kind of a big problem, is the code won't stay on the pages and you can't tell what's going on. Nobody's going to always have code in front of them that is what is offered as a free download... Please fix this! Otherwise great..

2/5 stars

Buy cheap, get cheap

:
I recently purchases Dreamweaver CS3: The Missing Manual on iBooks for whopping $39. I am enjoying it so much that I thought the CSS: The Missing Manual would be equally satisfying. The app version is a joke! It is formatted for the iPhone. So much for the low price.
