There are an increasing number of CSS resources around, yet you only have to look at a CSS mailing list to see the same questions popping up time and again. “How do I center a design?” “What is the best rounded-corner box technique?” “How do I create a three-column layout?” If you follow the CSS design community, it is usually a case of remembering which website a particular article or technique is featured on. 

However, if you are relatively new to CSS, or don’t have the time to read all the blogs, this information can be hard to track down. Even people who are skilled at CSS run into problems with some of the more obscure aspects of CSS such as the positioning model or specificity. 

This is because most CSS developers are self-taught, picking up tricks from articles and other people’s code without fully understanding the spec. And is it any wonder, as the CSS specification is complex and often contradictory, written for browser manufacturers rather than web developers? Then there are the browsers to contend with. 

Browser bugs and inconsistencies are one of the biggest problems for the modern CSS developer. Unfortunately, many of these bugs are poorly documented and their fixes verge on the side of folk law. You know that you have to do something a certain way or it will break in one browser or another. 

You just can’t remember which browser or how it breaks. So the idea for a book formed. A book that brings together the most useful CSS techniques in one place, that focuses on real-world browser issues and that helps plug common gaps in people’s CSS knowledge. A book that will help you jump the learning curve and have you coding like a CSS expert in no time flat

Building on what made the first edition a bestseller, CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions, Second Edition unites the disparate information on CSS-based design spread throughout the internet into one definitive, modern guide. 

Revised to cover CSS3, the book can be read from front to back, with each chapter building on the previous one. However, it can also be used as a reference book, dipping into each chapter or technique to help solve specific problems. In short, this is the one book on CSS that you need to have.

This second edition contains:

New examples and updated browser support information

New case studies from Simon Collison and Cameron Moll

CSS3 examples, showing new CSS3 features, and CSS3 equivalents to tried and tested CSS2 techniques

Who is this book for? 

CSS Mastery is aimed at anybody with a basic knowledge of (X)HTML and CSS. If you have just recently dipped your toes into the world of CSS design, or if you’ve been developing pure CSS sites for years, there will be something in this book for you.

However, you will get the most out of this book if you have been using CSS for a while but don’t consider yourself a master just yet. This book is packed full of practical, real-world advice and examples, to help you master modern CSS design.

About the Author:

In October 2006, Simon Collision started Erskine Design based in Nottingham, U.K. which grew to become an eight-strong team of creative web designers and developers who are afraid of nothing. Some people say they're one of the best agencies out there, and their clients include major magazines, government stuff, software companies and polar explorers. 

Moons ago, he was a successful visual artist, and founded an independent arts org and annual arts festival, putting his degree to some use at least. Then he caught the interwebs bug. 

As lead web developer at Agenzia from 2002 to 2006, he worked on numerous web projects for major record labels (such as Poptones, Universal) and bands (including The Libertines, Dirty Pretty Things, Beta Band), visual artists and illustrators (Jon Burgerman, Paddy Hartley, Lucy Orta, NOW Festival), businesses, community, and voluntary sector orgs, passionately ensuring everything was accessible and complied with current web standards. 

He does a bit of public speaking here and there, and will generally do anything for a biscuit and cup of tea, but prefers hard cash. 

He has lived in many cities, including London and Reykjavik, but has now settled back in his beloved Nottingham, where the grass is green and the girls are pretty. 

He also drives a 31-year-old car, and has a stupid cat called Bearface.
