Cascading Style Sheets: Designing for the Web
by Håkon Wium Lie and Bert Bos

Written by world authorities, this book is today's best guide to Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). CSS is a powerful and manageable mechanism to create much-needed and -requested typographical as well as visual effects that will reconcile aesthetics with the Web. CSS enjoys wide industry backing and will undoubtedly displace most of the "hacks" perpetrated by webmasters until today.

The authors explain clearly when to use CSS and when to select other methods, they describe how to create and maintain a (corporate) site with a consistent style that will display well on all screens and browsers, and they provide interesting case studies to transition a page's HTML implementation into a proper CSS design.

Contains an abundance of examples and illustrations, and a detailed index. (279 pages, 1997)
