Chapter 1. The CSS3 Lowdown

1. The CSS3 Lowdown

Before you start using CSS3, you should have a grasp of the what, why, and how behind it. In this chapter, you’ll learn how CSS3 is different from CSS 2.1 and get an overview on where browser support currently stands. For those browsers that don’t support CSS3 as fully as we would like, we’ll go over a number of ways to provide workarounds and CSS3 emulation. You’ll also learn about all the practical benefits that can come from using CSS3 right away in your projects, including a number of reasons (let’s not call them “arguments”) you can use to convince skeptical clients or bosses. Finally, we’ll go over how CSS3 fits into a progressive enhancement design methodology and best practices for using CSS3 to make it as robust and future-proof as possible.
