Ready to commit to using more CSS on your sites? If you are a hands-on
learner who has been toying with CSS and want to experiment with real-world
projects that will enable you to see how CSS can help resolve design issues,
this book is written just for you! CSS master Eric A. Meyer has picked up
where Eric Meyer on CSS: Mastering the Language of Web Design left off. He
has compiled 10 new, highly useful projects designed to encourage you to
incorporate CSS into your sites and take advantage of the design
flexibility, increased accessibility, decreased page weight, and cool visual
effects CSS offers.

Each project is laid out in an easy-to-follow, full color format complete
with notes, warnings, and sidebars to help you learn through example rather
than theory. Some of the concepts covered include:

Converting an HTML-based design to a pure positioning layout
Styling a photo gallery
Using background images to achieve cross-browser translucency effects
Using lists of links to create tabs and drop down menus without the use of
JavaScript
Styling weblog entries, and placing them in a full-page design
Creating a design for the CSS Zen Garden
