Cascading Style Sheets (Quick Study Computer) Pamphlet – February 24, 2006
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

That's not what this card is about at all. In fact, this seems to be more of a quick reference guide to a CSS for Dummies book. For example, almost 1/3 of the first page is devoted to acquiring and running 'TextPad', a text editor for Windows. Every item on the Menu Bar of TextPad is spelled out. Here's a quote: "1. New File, Open File, Save File - standard features on most menu bars; TextPad allows you to customize the default document type". I kid you not. By page 2, they've forgotten all about TextPad and write "Create a new file using Notepad or similar text editor, and save within the web directory as 'anyname'.css"...
This card is written exclusively for IE6. There are a number of typos, like in the 'Defining Styles' section, where paragraph b of the 'Styles with the Same Rules' section is literally "b. [SAMERULES.JPG]". Obviously someone didn't insert the link to the image correctly, and no one bothered to proofread this thing. There's almost nothing about block-level layout or writing cascading styles (this is CSS right?), but an entire section on changing the browser cursor, even listing all the varied cursor types. Yup, that's both well-supported by browsers *and* useful. Sigh. When you think of all the useful information about CSS that could have been crammed on 6 full-color laminated pages, and then look at this product, you want to cry.
I reserve one-star reviews for products that either explode unexpectedly, never had a chance of working due to design, or have customer support provided by Attila the Hun. This quick-reference has none of those features, so two stars for it.
Seriously, if you want a laminated CSS quick reference, download and print one of the excellent PDF quick references off the net and spend a few bucks at the copy shop to have it laminated. If you are just trying to get up to the free shipping amount like I did, there are better box-fillers out there than this card.
