Review:

Ian Graham's HTML Stylesheet Sourcebook explains the hows and whys of cascading style sheets (CSS). This Web document standard allows you to update all of the pages on your Web site at once--substituting an entirely new graphical style for every page--by only editing one document. In CSS, text and formatting instructions are entirely separate. A single style sheet maintains the style information (fonts, backgrounds, colors). The text-and-graphics HTML document passes through this style sheet, making the creation of a Web page a two-step process.

Graham's writing style is easy to understand and he uses practical examples to support his message that CSS is a vast improvement over conventional HTML. You'll learn the finer points of formatting and how text can be displayed through different style sheets, radically altering the pages' presentations.

This is not a general "how-to" HTML book (although he does provide background information about HTML). Instead, it is a guide for Web designers who are sick of the tedium of updating pages one at a time and for Web masters who are thinking hundreds of Web pages into the future.
