The CSS Detective Guide: Tricks For Solving Tough CSS Mysteries, EPub

This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. One of the toughest challenges novice CSS developers face is when seemingly perfect code doesn’t translate into a perfectly rendered browser page—and with all the different browsers available today, this happens all too often. The CSS Detective Guide aims to help, by teaching real world troubleshooting skills. You’ll learn how to track clues, analyze the evidence, and get to the truth behind CSS mysteries. These aren’t pat solutions, but rather strategies for thinking about CSS. Author Denise Jacobs begins by going over the basics of CSS with a special emphasis on common causes of problems. Then she shows you methods for giving your code the third degree. Then you’ll take a look at the line-up of usual suspects, the common problems and persistent bugs that are often encountered in CSS.Finally, you’ll have the chance to play detective and find the guilty culprit in: The Case of the Devilish Details The Case of the Mistaken Identity The Case of the Single White Space The Case of the Float with a Mind of Its Own The Case of the Browser Who Hated Me The Case of the LOL LayoutAt the end, you’ll find that you can crack any case and solve any future mystery that you encounter, and your coding problems will become elementary.

"Great, just what the world needs - another book about CSS"Is what some people *might* think upon learning that there's another CSS resource on the shelves to buy. Heck, I thought the exact same thing when I was approached about writing a book a few years ago, I really wondered if there was a need for what I was about to produce. Turns out there's plenty of space in the market for technical books still, and yet there are still too many coming out that cover the same ground, oftentimes the only differentiating marks being the production (colour photos, yay!). But *this* book really is something different.If you want a how-to guide on writing CSS, there are numerous choices out there, ranging from the beginner to the kind of people who get CSS but want to refine it into a real art; you got it covered. But all of these books guide you through the steps required to create your masterpieces and try to avoid covering the potential mistakes that can crop up. But the reality as a web developer is that you *will* hit upon problems, and sometimes they can be real head-scratchers to fix. If you've been in the web game for a few years, some of the solutions will come to you magically out of the ether, based on a hunch, a cumulation of years of 'bodging it to work in IE6', but for a newcomer this can be a bit daunting. What Denise has done here is write a book that's never existed (perhaps surprising that it's not been done before) and approached it in a fun way.In the first chapter, the author covers a lot of the basics of HTML and CSS, explaining concepts such as doctypes, validation, elements and attributes and so on.
