I've just read a book review on a book that claims in its title to be The Ulimate CSS Reference. The book also has a website associated with it. The contents of the site appear to be identical to those of the book. No registration is required to use the site.

If you use CSS, bookmark it now!

This looks like a really good find Mick, and SitePoint definitely have plenty of street cred. I was even more intrigued by the upcoming javascript. At the moment I use w3schools as a reference, which is okay, but could be better.

Another very good book I'd recommend for css is Bulletproof Web Design published by New Riders. I managed to get my copy locally through Borders. The samples in the book are extremely good, with very solid tips on improving your design for broader usability.

the saviour !!!

basically you use CSS to style your site, and XHTML to define the structure of the content.

I'm looking forward to that one too. The HTML one might also be interesting but I'll wait until it's out of beta. It's be great if it goes into HTML 5.

I use the fifth edition of HTML & XHTML: The Gefinitive Guide (no prizes for guessing the publisher!). It's a bit old now but it makes a great reference.

You know what I find most frustrating about new standards, is you have to wait so long for them to become the standard!

Old browsers have to be supported so damn long, even early versions of Safari with all it's documented bugs. Having switched predominately to internal development though, I can force everyone to use Firefox, which is the accepted standard inside our company.

One thing I like about developing web apps targeted at the iPhone, is you only have to worry about one browser. You can even use Apple specific stuff without worrying about other platforms. Pure bliss smile.gif

There are debates about which formatting advantage is best with attention to Search Engine Optimization . For example, can a seek engine can spider a tables-based website as calmly as a Cascading Style Sheet (CSS) based site? In the assessment of this author, indexing algorithms are altogether able of extracting argument from tables-based pages, about a lot of designers now use CSS-based designs, for the afterward reasons.
