Acknowledgments

Acknowledgments

To Wendy Sharp, my acquisitions editor at Peachpit/New Riders, for approaching me in the first place, helping me solidify the concept of the idea for the book, guiding me through the process, and having patience with yet another late author.

To Wendy Katz, my editor, for her incredibly detailed and thoughtful revisions and advice that have made this book much better than it would have been otherwise. Her support and guidance were invaluable, and it was a tremendous pleasure working so closely with her.

To Sheri German, my technical editor, for her painstaking work checking all those code samples and example pages, her help tracking down answers to the tough questions, and—most of all—for her enthusiasm.

To all the people at Peachpit/New Riders in production, marketing, and other departments whom I never worked with directly but who made this book a reality.

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

To my friends and family who provided photos of their pets for the example site used throughout the book: Karen Brock and her dog Shelby, Dean Gillenwater and his cat Alley and dog Dutch, Sarah Grover and her cat Nomar, and Laura Sandt and her dog Bailey.

To Stephanie Sullivan and John Gallant, both CSS experts, for getting me into this writing thing years ago. I’ve learned so much from them and am blessed to have their support.

To all the other CSS gurus and web designers who have inspired and taught me, including Cameron Adams, Holly Bergevin, Doug Bowman, Andy Budd, Dan Cederholm, Ingo Chao, Andy Clarke, Bruno Fassino, Roger Johansson, Eric Meyer, Cameron Moll, Georg Sortun, Russ Weakley, and countless others.

To all my colleagues at the UNC Highway Safety Research Center, for putting up with a sometimes tired, distracted, and stressed version of me over the last several months. Special thanks to my supervisor and friend Katy Jones for her support.

Most of all, to my husband Cary and our mystery baby, both of whom have been there with me throughout this whole process (well, the baby came a little late to the game). I love you both. Cary, I’m humbled by your patience in dealing with the double threat of stressed author and pregnant woman simultaneously. Thanks so much for your amazing support, encouragement, and for taking over cooking duty. I owe you several dinners. And cake.
