9780735712638: Designing CSS Web Pages

Go beyond the mechanics of CSS to how to think in the language of web design, and avoid the common pitfalls. Full of examples and deconstruction's to aid in understanding CSS and its application. The ability to use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is fast becoming a vital tool in the web professional's toolkit. But understanding how to use CSS is not intuitive--it requires a new way of thinking when it comes to building web pages. This book encourages web designers to look at the perceived limitations of the web as a new challenge to their design skills--without relying on HTML for presentation of pages. The overall theme is to instruct readers to build pages by using relative design techniques: understanding the relationship within the dynamic space of the web rather than the fixed-design "old-school" notions that have been in use for so long. The web site will include all of the files needed for the exercises and additional information of interest to web professionals including, but not limited to, recommended readings (suggested books, web sites and online articles), full-length interviews and a listing of CSS tools. www.christopher.org

From the Author:

Designing CSS Web Pages, a Web development book published by New Riders, came about because the material covering the design language of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) always seemed to be knee-deep in geek speak that produced only superficial design enhancements to Web pages. CSS was merely discussed in theory or simply used to reinvent HTML-based hacks. Until now, there wasn't a clear resource on how CSS could help to create outstanding, unique, and holistic Web page designs.

At the book site, you will find code listings and example projects used in the book, Designing CSS Web Pages, available for download. Also on the site to help you learn more about CSS and Web design is a page with CSS-related links and a listing of Web development tools. There's also gratuitous biography information about the author, table of contents and some editorial reviews.
