Any great chef will tell you that the key to creating good food is using quality ingredients.
Author Christopher Schmitt has just gone shopping for you.
By compiling hundreds of CSS recipes into this single book, he’s giving you a one-stop shop where you
can pick up the ingredients to create stylish, flexible web pages.
When I was first learning the wonders of CSS, trial and error prevailed as my primary means for discovering its creative powers: “Hmm, I’d like to turn this list into a horizontal navigation bar,” or “I need to stylize the components of a form using CSS for a client.” Several hours (or days) would go by after plugging in various CSS rules, removing some, and experimenting with endless combinations.
This hit-or-miss approach worked (at times), and although a curious person like me may even consider it “fun,” it sure ate up a lot of time in the process. I wish I’d had this book. Instead of stumbling upon the solution for styling every element of the page, I could have just thumbed through CSS Cookbook, grabbed the recipe, and started baking. The guesswork would’ve been eliminated, and I could have instead spent my time doing what I love to do best: creating.
The modular nature of this book makes it an indispensable reference for designers and developers of any caliber. Posed with problems from how best to handle typography, links, and navigation to even entire page layouts, Christopher clearly explains not only the styles necessary to complete the task, but also the caveats that may be attached for certain browsers.
And that’s the heart of this book’s purpose: real problems and the goods that will deliver real results. You’ve heard about how CSS will simplify your life, making pages lighter and easier to maintain. Now it’s time to start using it, and with this book, you’ll have one less excuse not to. So, my advice is to clear off a space on your desk because CSS Cookbook will take up permanent residency in the corner. Hopefully for you, that spot will be easily within arm’s reach.

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a style sheet language used for describing the look and formatting of a document written in a
Although most often used to change the style of web pages and user interfaces written in HTML and XHTML,
the language can be applied to any kind of XML document, including plain XML, SVG and XUL.
CSS is designed primarily to enable the separation of document content from document presentation, including elements such as the layout, colors, and fonts. This separation can improve content accessibility, provide more flexibility and control in the specification of presentation characteristics, enable multiple HTML pages to share formatting by specifying the relevant CSS in a separate .css file, and reduce complexity and repetition in the structural content, such as semantically insignificant tables that were widely used to format pages before consistent CSS rendering was available in all major browsers.
CSS makes it possible to separate presentation instructions from the HTML content in a separate file or style section of the HTML file.
In this ebook, we provide a compilation of CSS based examples that will help you kick-start your own web projects. We cover a wide range of topics, from text styling and table design, to class inheritance and hover effects. With our straightforward tutorials, you will be able to get your own projects up and running in minimum time.

As of October 2014 this is the final and complete fifth revision of the HTML standard of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The previous version, HTML 4, was standardised in 1997.
Its core aims have been to improve the language with support for the latest multimedia while keeping it easily readable by humans and consistently understood by computers and devices (web browsers, parsers, etc.). HTML5 is intended to subsume not only HTML 4, but also XHTML 1 and DOM Level 2 HTML. (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5)
