CSS is finally supported by all modern web browsers, empowering web designers to do what they’ve been hungering to do for years: control layout more precisely, use color more effectively, and expand typographic options beyond the frustrating limitations of the past. So where to begin? Where can you get design-focused instruction on CSS while learning the technical details?
Cascading Style Sheets: The Designer’s Edge is precisely the resource you’ve been looking for. Written by renowned web designer Molly E. Holzchlag, this book begins with an in-depth look at structured markup, both XHTML and CSS. It then explains how to use CSS to achieve specific design goals involving typography, color, layout, and more. Finally, it deconstructs a series of impressive designs, showing you how these designers used CSS to maximize their efficiency and get exactly the right effect.
Key topics you’ll learn about include:
- Writing valid XHTML
- Authoring effective CSS rules
- Working with classes and Ids
- Validating your CSS
- Creating great typographical designs with CSS
- Using CSS for backgrounds, borders, and color
- Creating multiple link styles
- Using absolute positioning
- Working with relative positioning
- Laying out pages using the float property
- Creating great CSS layouts

Non-linear Modeling and Analysis of Solids and Structures This book presents a theoretical treatment of nonlinear behavior of solids and structures in such a way that it is suitable for numerical computation, typically using the Finite Element Method. Starting out from elementary concepts, the author systematically uses the principle of virtual work, initially illustrated by truss structures, to give a... Advances in Magnetism: From Molecules to Materials
In the past few years our understanding of magnetic behavior, once thought to be mature, has enjoyed a new impetus from contributions ranging from molecular chemistry, materials chemistry and sciences to solid-state physics. The book spans recent trends in magnetism for molecule - as well as inorganic-based materials, with emphasis on new...
