XHTML and CSS Resources

In this chapter, I've barely hinted at the power of CSS. If you have well-crafted XHTML markup, you can do many things with CSS. Here are a few resources that you can turn to when you want to learn more:

  • The idea of creating an inline list like the one in the Shoes Are Not Love site navigation came from an A List Apart article called “Taming Lists,” by Mark Newhouse (www.alistapart.com/stories/taminglists/).

  • As mentioned earlier in the chapter, Mark also manages a site called Real World Style (http://realworldstyle.com/). He likes to create layout problems and find CSS solutions for them. The solutions are often beautiful, and many of them work acceptably even in Netscape 4.

  • The Web Standards Project (www.webstandards.org) is a fine place to stay on top of news, tutorials, and, if you feel so moved, community action in nearly every aspect of web standards.

  • Eric Meyer has created many fantastic resources, including a few books on the topic: Eric Meyer on CSS (New Riders Publishing, 2002), Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide (O'Reilly & Associates, 2000), and Cascading Style Sheets 2.0 Programmer's Reference (The McGraw-Hill Companies, 2001). He also maintains a list of resources on his site, Meyerweb (www.meyerweb.com/eric/css/).

  • Jeffrey Zeldman is my personal favorite web standards evangelist. Zeldman's A List Apart: A Magazine for People Who Make Web Sites (www.alistapart.com) regularly features articles on the mechanics of creating standards-compliant web sites. His Daily Report follows standards-related news (www.zeldman.com), and his book Designing with Web Standards fills in where this chapter leaves off. I know that because as I write this book, he is sitting behind me writing his book. We don't get out much.
