Real world css
In the previous four sections of the guide we covered the entire cascading style sheets technology. We looked at selectors, properties and advanced aspects of CSS that involve special selectors and special properties. That was where the other editions of the guide have ended. We thought though for this latest edition it might be time to start including some of our ideas about how to really start making style sheets work under the heading of Real World CSS. The sections here are quite diverse. Some, like the section on tables, are very practical in nature, helping you pull together the different parts of the guide and make your style sheet do something that works. Others, such as the Web Design section, concern themselves more with general principles of flexible accessible web design using style sheets.
The extra chapters are as follows
- Tables with CSS - a practical look at the challenges styling tables with CSS presents
- Browser compatibility - develop strategies for maximizing forward and backwards compatibility with CSS
- Design for the *world* *wide* web - a thoughtful look at design issues specific to the web, and how they differ from designing for the printed page
- Validating - how to validate both your CSS and your HTML
This final section is only available in the full version of The Complete CSS Guide, available for purchase and download for just $24.99. It also comes as a bonus if you purchase our CSS editor Style Master. As well, it's included in many of our self-paced course bundles.
