Hi,

I have a growing interest in CSS, and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations for good books or comprehensive sites about CSS.

The good ones I have found at the moment are glish.com and w3schools, but I'd like something a bit more in depth, with lots of examples and tips. Any hints?

- Vanessa

A topic that has often been discussed here - and "here" is an excellent resource. If you haven't already tried it, you'll find a whole lot with the site search function.

Some good threads, which also include further resources:

Favorite CSS Books [webmasterworld.com]
The Beginners Journey into CSS [webmasterworld.com]

I read some good reviews of Eric Meyer on CSS [ericmeyeroncss.com]. Have a look at the W3C CSS1 Test Suite [w3.org] and the new CSS2 Test Suite [meyerweb.com] (created by Meyer).

Coming from a complete beginner standpoint, I've found this site very good to work through.

Fast enough to work through that you feel you're getting somewhere, and still quite clear and understandable.

I'll second that WebmasterWorld is one of the best (if not the best) resource for CSS - my flagged threads on the subject are better than any book I have or have seen.

However, the book I use as a resource is Cascading Syle Sheets: Designing for the Web by Hakon Wium Lie and Bert Bos.

A good meta-list is Owen Brigg's CSS Panic Guide [thenoodleincident.com], which technically hasn't even been published yet (go to the top level of the domain to see what I mean). ;)

Another big list 'o CSS links can be found at Website Tips [websitetips.com].

Thanks for that last link moonbiter. Already picked up some gems from it.

Firstly, think about what your pages do, not what they look like. Let your design flow from the services which they will provide to your users, rather than from some overarching idea of what you want pages to look like. Let form follow function, rather than trying to take a particular design and make it "work".

from AListApart [alistapart.com]

That echoes my own slowly growing understanding of web "design" (so-called).
