Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

I want to thank everyone whose assistance has made writing this book possible and painless.

Immense thanks go to my copy editor Wendy Katz for ensuring my writing was clear, precise, and polished. It was wonderful to work with you again. Thank you for your guidance, advice, and revisions, particularly your continual correction of my placement of the word “only.” Someday I’ll learn its mysteries.

My writing also owes a lot to the tremendous work of Chris Mills, my technical editor. Thank you for painstakingly checking my code, offering helpful suggestions, answering my technical questions, and pointing out areas to correct or clarify.

I’m grateful to my acquisitions editor at Peachpit, Wendy Sharp, for making the book a reality. Thanks also to all the other staff at Peachpit/New Riders who have been involved in producing this book. I don’t know your names, but I know how hard you’ve worked on this and how talented you are, and I’m grateful.

Thanks to David Fugate, my literary agent, for his guidance and advocacy.

There are many people who weren’t directly involved in the writing of the book but to whom I owe so much of my knowledge. Thanks to Zoltan Hawryluk, Paul Irish, and Richard Fink for answering my technical questions and providing great tools for working with CSS3. I’m grateful to my high school teacher Mr. Butkus for starting me down this path by teaching me HTML and Photoshop 4. Thanks also to my former boss Lamar Heyward for putting the crazy idea of using CSS for all style and layout into my head. I’ve also learned so much from the work of John Allsopp, Dan Cederholm, Andy Clarke, Chris Coyier, Roger Johansson, Eric Meyer, Trent Walton, Estelle Weyl, and many others. Thanks for being so brilliant and sharing it with the rest of us.

Finally, thanks to my fantastic family. Cary, I’m so thankful for your loving support through this second book-writing expedition. You’ve been incredibly patient with my long hours and listening to me complain about browser bugs and confusing W3C specs, and you’ve taken such good care of Asha while I’ve toiled away. Mom, Dad, and Faith, you also watched Asha a good bit during this process, and I’m very grateful for your help. Asha, thanks also to you for letting Mama work and coming to visit me with hug breaks every once in a while. I love you all.
