Front Cover
Apress, Jan 14, 2016 - Computers - 325 pages
Pro CSS3 Layout Techniques demonstrates the newest and most cutting-edge layout tools found within CSS3, allowing you to quickly create advanced design patterns for websites and apps.

This book teaches you how to make the most of CSS3’s existing specification, including those parts of the specification already widely implemented, as well as the upcoming specification extensions that are still being developed by the W3C. After reading Pro CSS3 Layout Techniques you’ll be able to confidently develop sophisticated, vertical-aware layouts that aren't possible with CSS2.

CSS1 allowed designers to separate content from presentation for the first time and CSS2 cemented support for advanced typographical control and integrated vendor-specific extensions, but neither specification provided more than rudimentary layout control. CSS3’s latest additions allow designers to craft fully responsive, sophisticated layouts without the need for complex scripts or smoke and mirror workarounds.

CSS3 is still in active development, with browser vendors racing against each other to implement the latest recommendations from the W3C. Pro CSS3 Layout Techniques will help you cut through the waffle and get straight to the heart of what works now, while showing you how to be ready for the future of CSS!
