CSS: The Definitive Guide, 3rd Edition, provides you with a comprehensive guide to CSS implementation, along with a thorough review of all aspects of CSS 2.1. Updated to cover Internet Explorer 7, Microsoft's vastly improved browser, this new edition includes content on positioning, lists and generated content, table layout, user interface, paged media, and more.
Simply put, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a way to separate a document's structure from its presentation. The benefits of this can be quite profound: CSS allows a much richer document appearance than HTML and also saves time--you can create or change the appearance of an entire document in just one place; and its compact file size makes web pages load quickly.
Author Eric Meyer tackles the subject with passion, exploring in detail each individual CSS property and how it interacts with other properties. You'll not only learn how to avoid common mistakes in interpretation, you also will benefit from the depth and breadth of his experience and his clear and honest style. This is the complete sourcebook on CSS.
The 3rd edition contains:
- Updates to reflect changes in the latest draft version of CSS 2.1
- Browser notes updated to reflect changes between IE6 and IE7
- Advanced selectors supported in IE7 and other major browsers included
- A new round of technical edits by a fresh set of editors
- Clarifications and corrected errata, including updated URLs of referenced online resources

Meyer begins by explaining the unique relationship CSS has to HTML as it was designed. Many of the newer, or combination HTML/CSS textbooks out there these days do not address this relational importance. Good stuff, as it teaches one to utilize CSS in the way it was designed: to augment markup.
Another point is that is nothing in the book about animations and other widely supported but not established CSS. This has been deliberately left out by the author, but it's something to consider given that unofficial CSS rules are a large part of what's in use today.
Conclusion: if you have a lot of time and need to meticulously learn basic CSS, then this book is for you.
