  • Nice! Btw, you have Andy’s and Ian’s review URLS mixed up there Shayne.

  • Thanks Simon, all fixed!


    so is that title an upgrade/update/corrections for ‘The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks, 2nd Edition’ which released last year?

  • Robert

    Does it state clearly which items function in IE6 and which not?

  • If you’re after a little more information on the book. Kevin has recorded this

  • Katia

    This sounds like a fantastic and exciting book to explain and embrace the new CSS specifications.. I love the power of CSS and the theory behind all the things you should be able to do with it (ignoring cross browser hacks etc).

    HOWEVER as a website developer working in the real world – I can’t help but know that all the cool new CSS specifications will be unsupported older browsers, and it will not be practical to implement these new properties etc for some time..

    You cannot ignore the fact that a high percentage of people still use Internet Explorer 6 and are highly unlikely to EVER upgrade. Believe me, I wish we could ignore these people and/or blow up IE6, but I work in the real world..

  • Looks like a good book. But final verdict can be given only after trying it.

  • Shady

    Though I respect Kevin Yank, the name of this book turns me off. Therefore I would never consider it.

  • The title seems a bit…hm…But the name of the author and the review makes me to try it, however
