Learning about CSS
CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets, have taken over the design end of websites, it seems. I’m not that good with them yet, so I’m starting to collect useful CSS Links.
- http://css.maxdesign.com.au/ – Great site to learn CSS. Straightforward to find available topics.
- http://www.csszengarden.com/ – an amazing demonstration of what can be accomplished visually through CSS-based design. Each link on the side shows exactly the same text with a completely different CSS design and layout.
Here is a list of Books that were recommended thru the CWP group.
1. Designing With Web Standards – Jeffrey Zeldman
2. CSS Definitive Guide OR http://proquest.safaribooksonline.com/0596527330
has a ton of info — better as a reference than to just read since it’s information overload – it covers all sorts of minute details on CSS and is guaranteed to give you a headache.(Sue)
3. CSS Cookbook by Christopher Schmitt -
4. The Zen of CSS Design: Visual Enlightenment for the Web is a great book for design ideas from a more artistic than technical standpoint.
6.Bullet Proof Web Design: Improving flexibility and protecting against worst-case scenarios with XHTML and CSS (Paperback) by Dan Cederholm (Author)
7. CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions (Paperback)
by Andy Budd (Author), Simon Collison (Author), Cameron Moll (Author)
Also, don’t forget that UCLA has access to Safari Online Proquest) which lists 5 or 6 books on CSS that you can read online for free from a UCLA computer (or using the VPN from off-campus).(Sue)
