Cascading Style Sheets:
Separating Content from Presentation
Book overview (from the publisher)
Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) enable us to style and lay out HTML data on a web page without the use of messy <table> and <font> tags, and without the use of "hacks" such as invisible GIF files. CSS allows for the separation of content from presentation, so that web designers can change the entire design of a site by modifying one stylesheet, rather than updating each HTML document that makes up the web site.
This book is a focused guide to using CSS for the visual design of web pages. It's practical, there's no fluff, and the core CSS skills are balanced by techniques for using the technology in today's browsers.
What does this book cover?
Topics covered in this book include an introduction to CSS; discussion of CSS concepts such as rules, selectors, and inheritance; typography; the CSS Box model, and cross-browser CSS concerns.
