    Question Is there a CSS book?

    Yes, there are a lot of short tutorials and everything, but none of them is thorough. So that's the key word. All of them are short (or am I wrong?).

    So, can somebody tell us where to find a good tutorial or book about CSS on the net?
    Thnx

    There are lots of books on CSS. I'm currently saving up for Eric Meyer on CSS - www.ericmeyeroncss.com - which came out a few weeks ago but there are plenty of other ones. Search for CSS on Amazon and see what comes up.

    My local Barnes and Noble has a wide range of books and usually carries everything Wrox and O' Reilly have. No other bookstore has the variety. Though Barnes & Noble is in a 65,000 square foot building and all the other local stores are 1,800-4,500 sq. feet.

    However, I usually order my computer books online through Amazon.com or BN.com.

    I have the O'Reilly "Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide" and find it pretty useful.

    I reviewed Eric Meyer on CSS the other day in the books store and I really liked it. The bookstore at my college didn't have it, so I put it on order. It's colorful and gives lots of practical examples on how to convert a site to pure CSS. I liked it because it didn't start out with "this is how to declare a style..." or give a laundry list of elements.

    I just bought O'reilly's DHTML: The Definitive Guide and it has everything from Javascript to the DOM to CSS and is a great resource.

    I ordered both "Cascading Stylesheets: Seperating Content from Presentation" and "Eric Meyer on CSS" from Amazon the other day - unfortunately they won't arrive for a couple of weeks, probably because both books have only just come out. I'll review them on my blog once I've read them.
