Style Sheets are the public face of evolution on the Web. They are the exciting new development which facilitate faster, spicier web sites. Up until now web developers wishing to present their pages in anything other than a bland and uninteresting manner have had to resort to all kinds of complex guru tricks and hacks. Any desire for compelling presentation has been required to make heavy use of graphics to ensure satisfactory results. Maintenance has become a nightmare as opposed to a simple routine task. Style sheets solve all of this. Now developers can put all styling information in one place halving the size of files, reducing the need for images and greatly easing the maintenance nightmare. Added to this is the upcoming force of XML which allows developers to custom design their documents and thus requires another form of style sheet: XSL. Professional Style Sheets for HTML and XML is, therefore, the book which charts the future of the Web.

Review:

Here's a book for those already proficient in using HTML to design more complex Web pages. Its purpose is to educate the reader on using style sheets and XML to make better Web pages. Style sheets are a means of providing additional and advanced specifications for the translation of mark-up codes. As a result, designers can present more advanced designs while actually reducing coding, increasing the legibility of marked-up copy, and creating a page that's easier to maintain. They can be used with the Web's workhorse markup language, HTML, or with the newer, more advanced XML.

Boumphrey walks you through the thinking behind style sheets and XML, and then shows you how to use them to get more out of your design efforts. This is not a book for beginners--it requires at least a sound intermediate understanding of HTML. No knowledge of XML is required, though. Boumphrey provides all the explanation you need to follow the examples and start putting XML to work for you. The first part of the book deals with the basics--the purpose and use of style sheets and an introduction to XML. Part 2 tackles the question of what approaches work best with which browsers. Part 3 goes on to cover more advanced information and techniques. Also included is coverage of CSS1, CSS2, XSL, and Mozilla standards as well as nine technical information-dense appendices. --Elizabeth Lewis

From the Publisher:

This book is for the discerning and forward thinking web developer. One who recognises the limitations of plain HTML and wants to take full advantage of technological advancements such as CSS and XSL to create the most attractive, information packed and yet totally user friendly real world web pages. It assumes a basic understanding of HTML but requires no experience of XML.
