Introducing The SitePoint CSS Reference!

By Matthew Magain

We’re very excited to reveal that the SitePoint CSS Reference is now open to the public!


Written by two of the world’s most renowned CSS experts, Tommy Olsson and Paul O’Brien, the reference contains a bunch of features that make it stand out from the pack — things like cross-browser compatibility charts and user feedback (ala the PHP manual) — to ensure that it is accurate, up to date, and best-practice. If you’re building sites with CSS, this is a reference you’ll keep coming back to again and again.

We’d like to extend a big thank you to everyone who got involved during the private beta test stage! We received some excellent, constructive feedback from many members of the SitePoint community, some of which has already been implemented; we’ve also penciled in many other suggestions for future releases.

We believe that the unique combination of expert commentary, thoroughness of content, useful examples, up-to-date browser charts and dynamic user feedback make this the best CSS reference online. Period.

    Yeah! I’ve been waiting for this one to go live! Good job everyone. Any idea when we can expect to see the beta of the JavaScript reference?

    I love having such a great reference at my finger tips! :)

  • Wonderful! Have you considered working with the folks at to include your reference in their api?

  • Jdawg2k

    Right on! I have been waiting for this since I became a member just after the open beta.
    I had a quick look and it all looks very organized and easy to use. I now have a reference for myself and my students taking an Internet publishing class. Thanks!!

  • Great resource.
