Cascading Style Sheet: The Definitive Guide

Cascading Style Sheets - The Definitive Guide, Eric A. Meyer, ISBN: 0596005253

It is a very complete guide. It did allow me to understand my own blog CSS code and I have been able to fix an alignment problem related to margin values in <div> tag style property. Since my banner was displaying correctly in IE (incorrect behavior) but was misaligned in Firefox, a full understanding of CSS was necessary to figure out what was wrong and this book helped a lot. This small experience did allow me to appreciate the type of challenges HTML professionals are confronted to daily to support a wide range of browsers.

My only complain, and maybe it is because HTML editing is not my thing, is that while I was reading the book, I did not felt the author has succeeded in transmitting his passion for the topic. Instead reading this book felt as exciting as reading a dictionary for the most part. For this reason, I would not recommend it for learning CSS but if you need a good reference document then it might do fine.

I want you to find in this blog informations about C++ programming that I had a hard time to find in the first place on the web.
