You are like me and you will appreciate this little helper. It is very compact and filled with every CSS 2.0 style there is.
It also shows which properties and styles are compatible with which Browser. It is up to you if you want to use the latest styles available or rather fall back to the styles and properties that virtually every browser in use today can render correctly.
This is a compact reference for CSS and not meant for people who want to learn CSS. It would make a good addition when you buy a book to learn CSS and get this reference for quick look-ups of the already learned styles.
Not as Handy as It Should Be
I liked the Idea of a quick reference for CSS, because I always struggle with remembering the exact syntax (or confuse them with HTML or JS attributes) or can't recall which properties can be applied to which HTML element. I have to problems with this reference, which makes it for me less effective than I wish it to be.
1) This is not and issue with the content, but the page layout. It wouldn't be too hard to print the chapter and the property that can be found on the page at the top of every page to make scanning of the book easier and reduces the need for a detour to the index.
2) It would have been great if there would have been not only a list of attributes sorted alphabetically, but also a list of HTML elements sorted alphabetically with the information for each of them, which CSS attribute can be applied to it. It makes the book thicker, but you could have compensated that by using thinner paper and use less empty line in the content.
I hope that my suggestions might find it into a future, version of the book, which also incorporated the CSS 3.0 attributes that are supported by some of the latest browsers like Mozilla Firefox.
Of course, it IS a reference volume - not an introduction. Therefore (as some reviewers note) even the introductory material is not sufficiently elementary for the novice. The word REFERENCE is in the title, however, so I don't fault this book for not providing what it didn't promise to provide. So, beginners, feel free to buy the book now - because you'll want it to refer to. But get your grounding in a more basic book. Meyer's 2000 "Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide" could use its second edition, but is a great way to begin when you have this "Reference" volume to check the latest info on CSS and browsers supported.
And, if you're need persuading to minimize your HTML and move forward with Style Sheets, at least skim the first couple chapters of Owen Briggs. et al.'s "Cascading Style Sheets: Separating Content from Presentation" (ISBN 1904151043 ) They quickly helped me see why not to waste time and power on mere HTML when I'm involved in a complex web site - especiallly when growth and adaptations are planned over the years.
Eric's experience in the application of this advanced technique and his participation in the Web community is expressed in the organization and clarity of this book. No hand-holding tutorials here, just the facts and the context which gives those facts meaning.
And if that is not compact enough for you, Chapter 8 "CSS2 Quick Reference," condenses the material even more. Also handy is the lengthy chart on browser compatibility.
I can only fault the book for not going beyond its purpose. That is, the book covers the CSS specification properties only. In particular, styles implemented by Internet Explorer, which may be extremely handy yet not officially approved, are not covered.
As someone previously familiar with CSS, and fluent in a slew of other web based languages I needed a book that had all of the information I needed about CSS so I didn't have to troll the web everytime I ran into a problem. Well, this book is it. Eric Meyer is known for being the man at CSS and this book is well written and concise. I'd recommend it to anyone using CSS, fluent or not.
