CSS has grown from a language for formatting documents into a robust language for designing web applications. Its simplicity is deceptive, however. It belies the complexity of the box model, stacking contexts, specificity, and the cascade. CSS mastery lies in understanding these concepts and how to mitigate them.
This book will show you how to write better, more efficient CSS, and to take advantage of the plethora of the new cutting-edge CSS features available to the front-end developer. You’ll also learn to master tools that will improve your workflow.
This book is for designers and developers with some HTML and CSS experience.
