Buy

The power to build visually stunning web sites is now at your fingertips. This comprehensive introduction clearly shows you how to combine Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) with HTML, XHTML, or XML to create rich, aesthetically compelling web designs. It follows a browser-neutral point of view so you can easily develop sites that are compatible with IE6, IE7, Firefox 2, Opera 9, and Safari 2.

Packed with detailed examples in syntax-colored code and showing the resulting web pages in color, the second edition will help you discover how and why CSS works. It first guides you through the principles of sound CSS-based web design and the properties for manipulating the presentation of a document. You'll then find out how to take your sites to a higher level with CSS concepts such as multi-column layouts and centering positioned elements vertically.
