Preface

Preface

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a simple standardized system that gives designers extensive control over the presentation of their web pages. CSS is an essential component of web design today. Compared to 90's-era workarounds, web builders have greater control over a web site's design and spend less time editing and maintaining that design. CSS also extends beyond the traditional web design to design and control the look of a web page when it's printed.

This book is a collection of CSS-based solutions to common web design problems. The solutions range from the simple to the complex, but hopefully everyone will learn something from this book.

CSS is easy to use: it doesn't demand any special hardware or software. The basic requirements are a computer, a modern browser like Mozilla or Internet Explorer for Windows (to name a few), and your favorite web page editor. A web page editor could be anything from a simple text editor like Window's Notepad or Macintosh's SimpleText to a full-fledged WYSIWYG tool like Macromedia Dreamweaver in code view.
