CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions
In our wonderful world of web design, there are 3,647 ways to accomplish the same goal. Approximately. And that absurdly fictitious number is increasing every day. Instead of one, correct way of solving a particular problem, we’re both blessed and cursed by the abundant choices we have as web designers. It’s these choices that make designing for the Web fun and interesting, while at the same time overwhelming. CSS Mastery will help cure that ov- whelmingitis (a word that I’ve just invented). Andy Budd has been writing, designing, and speaking about standards-based web design for years, and we’re now lucky to see his clear, easy-to-follow way of teaching essential CSS te- niques compiled in this very book. The result is a card catalog of indispensable solutions, tricks, and tips that a web professional such as yourself should not be without. I’ve always frowned on publications that suggest a single, correct way of accomplishing a goal, and Andy does the complete opposite, offering multiple methods for tasks such as styling links, creating tabbed navigation, or creating columned layouts (to name but a few). Armed with these popular and stylish approaches to common design elements, you’ll be b- ter prepared to make your own informed decisions.
