    CSS Books/Tutorials

    Hi,

    I need a good css tutorial or book, that starts with the basics and goes right through to advanced stuff, and it needs to cover css positionsing quite well.
    Can anyone recommend something?

    thanks, rmacca

    www.glish.com has some good info on CSS layouts although not really tutorials & lots of general CSS links too.

    Do a search on the forums. Lots pf people have asked for good CSS books and/or tutorials.

    My recommendation for a CS book is "The Web Designers Guide to Stylesheets" by Steven Mulder. He's the guy who wrote most of the CSS tutorials at WebMonkey.

    Make your own book.

    Whenever I read a usefull resources about CSS I always dump the text of it into MSWord for a later date. Once I print it out It usually covers most of my CSS reference needs.

    Print our the W3C CSS spec if you really want a definitive reference.

    Agreed. Its worthmaking some reference material for yourself cheaply using DIY, then you can format it the way you want and get rid of the stuff you dont.

    I have been thinking of cutting and pasting w3's HTMl and CSS reference into word and doing a general tidy up and reformat (its not the prettiest or easisest site to navigate) for my own use but it seems a little bit of a job for when I have a spare half an hour.

    You could download someones elses css code from an appropriate site and use it to find out the tip, tricks and techniques.
