From the reviews:
"Croft, Lloyd, and Rubin promise real-world cascading style sheet (CSS) techniques for real-world CSS professionals. … The basics of CSS are covered, along with a number of tricks, handy shortcuts, and workarounds. The book offers down-to-earth advice on how to handle browser differences from simple problems. Screen shots and graphics illustrate the main points clearly. … the main target audience for the book is likely to be Web page designers, or programmers implementing a given design." (Annika Hinze, ACM Computing Reviews, September, 2008)
Music, design, typography, web standards, South Florida beaches. What could these things possibly have in common? Dan Rubin, that's what er, who. From vocal coaching and performing to graphic design and (almost literally) everything in between, Dan does his best to spread his talent as thin and as far as he possibly can while still leaving time for a good cup of tea and the occasional nap. His passion for all things creative and artistic isn't a solely selfish endeavor either you don't have to hang around too long before you'll find him waxing educational about a cappella jazz and barbershop harmony, interface design, usability, web standards, and which typeface was on the bus ad that just whizzed by at 60mph. Dan has been known to write the occasional entry on his blog, superfluousbanter.org (you might even find a podcast or two if you poke around enough), and his professional work can be found at his agency's site, webgraph.com.
Ian Lloyd runs Accessify.com, a site dedicated to promoting web accessibility and providing tools for web developers. His personal site, Blog Standard Stuff, ironically, has nothing to do with standards for blogs (it's a play on words), although there is an occasional standards-related gem to be found there. Ian works full-time for Nationwide Building Society, where he tries his hardest to influence standards-based design ("to varying degrees!"). He is a member of the Web Standards Project, contributing to the Accessibility Task Force. Web standards and accessibility aside, he enjoys writing about his trips abroad and recently took a "year out" from work and all things web (but then ended up writing more in his year off than he ever has). He finds most of his time being taken up by a demanding old lady (relax, it's only his old Volkswagen camper van). Ian wrote his first book for SitePoint, titled Build Your First Web Site the Right Way with HTML and CSS, in which he teaches web standards-based design to the complete beginner.
Jeff Croft is a web and graphic designer focused on web standards-based development living and working Lawrence, Kansas. As the senior designer at World Online, Jeff works on such award-winning standards-based sites as Lawrence.com and LJworld.com. Jeff also runs a popular blog and personal site at JeffCroft.com, where he writes about many topics, including modern web and graphic design. In addition to his work with World Online, Jeff has also worked at two major universities in an effort to bring web standards to the education sector, and completed many freelance and contract jobs for varying clients. When he's not hunched over a computer, Jeff enjoys photography, music, film, television, and a good night out on the town.
Being quite new to CSS, I wanted an introduction that was "advanced" but still an easy read, i.e. not a reference. Read morePublished on August 14, 2013 by Thomas Svensen
