5.0 out of 5 stars The Book of CSS 3 by Peter Gasston, June 21, 2011
This review is from: The Book of CSS3: A Developer's Guide to the Future of Web Design (Paperback)
CSS3 contains features that previously were impossible or required a complicated work-around to be possible using a cascading style sheet for presentation. Designers are still dealing with browsers that choose to implement CSS methods in different ways, but things are getting better as work on the standard progresses.

Some of the things available in CSS3 include gradients, color and opacity, web queries, flexible box layouts, border and box effects as well as methods for dealing with Web fonts and both 2D and 3D transformations. As is usually the case, everything is not available across all browsers at this time.

This book follows a great formula for each CSS3 module covered. First the basics are outlined, then more complex examples follow, ending with a summation and chart clearly showing how each browser group supports the modules' implementation. This will prove to be a useful book for the designer to have within easy reach when working on CSS3 code.

The book is annotated with many links to additional resources. Appendix A lists support for the CSS3 modules across the major browsers. It follows the book's chapter order and gives a quick reference glance the developer looking to use a module. Appendix B is a comprehensive listing of online resources relating to CSS3, browsers, and various tools that will make the developers task much easier. I think this book will be a great tool for updating my designs for modern browsers. I can't wait to experiment and implement the things I have read about in The Book of CSS3.
