CSS with jQuery.


The latest Sitepoint book “JQuery Newbie to Ninja” is outstanding!
I consider myself quite accomplished with Javascript, but this introduction to the JQuery library is changing my mind about how to structure a [hand-crafted] webpage!

BTW: This may be ‘old news’ to those who are familiar with JQuery. But I realized, while reading the book, JQuery provides that long sought-after CSS capability to set an element’s size based on another element; including proportional measurements (like +=15px). Phenomenal!!!
