1.0 out of 5 stars Unreadable; couldn't return it fast enough, June 14, 2009
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: HTML with CSS and XHTML 100 Success Secrets, Tips, Tricks, Hints and Hacks Toolbox and Practical Goodies Guide (Kindle Edition)
For $9.99, I made the ill-fated choice to purchase "...100 Success Secrets, Tips, Tricks..." without first sampling it. I just needed a CSS reference on my Kindle. After purchasing, I first began to get nervous when I saw that the table of contents didn't display well on my Kindle DX - as though there were no CRLF pairs.
But I'm more concerned with content, so I continued on.
"It is very advantageous for a person to gain enough knowledge about the correct placing of CSS position as this will vitally help him to direct the precise position of his HTML elements. Good thing, it is already possible these days to do the designs that require the use of HTML image maps or JavaScript previously through the use of CSS." (from "CSS Position: Marveling on Its Purpose").
What? Ok, perhaps my standards are too high. After all, good development guides don't need to define art, right? They just need to be correct...
"When a person specifies position: absolute, the elements is automatically being erased from the document and transferred exactly as to where he would want to place it." (from "CSS Position: Marveling on Its Purpose").
Ok I'm out. High standards or not, I rather need verb/noun agreement, even if it is "just" a development guide.
