Some brief overview of this book

Web site design has grown up. Unlike the old days, when designers cobbled together chunky HTML, bandwidth-hogging graphics, and a prayer to make their sites look good, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) now lets your inner designer come out and play. But CSS isnt just a tool to pretty up your site; its a reliable method for handling all kinds of presentation—from fonts and colors to page layout. CSS: The Missing Manual clearly explains this powerful design language and how you can use it to build sparklingly new Web sites or refurbish old sites that are ready for an upgrade.Like their counterparts in print page-layout programs, style sheets allow designers to apply typographic styles, graphic enhancements, and precise layout instructions to elements on a Web page. Unfortunately, due to CSSs complexity and the many challenges of building pages that work in all Web browsers, most Web authors treat CSS as a kind of window-dressing to spruce up the appearance of their sites. Integrating CSS with a sites underlying HTML is hard work, and often frustratingly complicated. As a result many of the most powerful features of CSS are left untapped. With this book, beginners and Web-building veterans alike can learn how to navigate the ins-and-outs of CSS and take complete control over their Web pages appearance.Author David McFarland (the bestselling author of OReillys Dreamweaver: The Missing Manual) combines crystal-clear explanations, real-world examples, a dash of humor, and dozens of step-by-step tutorials to show you ways to design sites with CSS that work consistently across browsers. Youll learn how to:

-Create HTML thats simpler, uses less code, is search-engine friendly, and works well with CSS

-Style text by changing fonts, colors, font sizes, and adding borders

-Turn simple HTML links into complex and attractive navigation bars-complete with CSS-only rollover effects that add interactivity to your Web pages

-Style images to create effective photo galleries and special effects like CSS-based drop shadows

-Make HTML forms look great without a lot of messy HTML

-Overcome the most hair-pulling browser bugs so your Web pages work consistently from browser to browser

-Create complex layouts using CSS, including multi-column designs that dont require using old techniques like HTML tables

-Style Web pages for printingUnlike competing books, this Missing Manual doesnt assume that everyone in the world only surfs the Web with Microsofts Internet Explorer; our book provides support for all major Web browsers and is one of the first books to thoroughly document the newly expanded CSS support in IE7, currently in beta release.

Now that Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) have finally come of age, web designers can take complete control of the appearance of their web pages. This text clearly explains this powerful design tool and how to use it.
