Know some CSS? Do you want to enhance what you know and can do? Ever wonder about how to do something you’ve seen in on some site somewhere? Well, I have and do, and I’ve just finished reading a book that provides me with a good theory and example reference for CSS that provides that extra information I was looking for. O’Reilly’s CSS Cookbook, Second Edition (ISBN: 0596527411)
- I definitely like the “Quick look-up” format
- Simple and clear explanatations that can be easily understood.
- Great for extending knowledge, not just the normal “basic” CSS info
- Lots of good code snippets that can be adapted to real world situations
- Covers CSS 2.1 conventions
- No color images? Um…how many black and white web sites do you see out there?
- If you’re a beginner, check out another book
- I see tables in their code…we’re talking CSS right. Maybe this was done to keep things simple, but still.
All in all this is a great book for extending what you know about CSS and how to solve specific problems that may crop up. Like I mentioned, this book is probably not for the CSS beginner, but definitely a good reference to have around the keyboard!
