Just came across Tony's .clearfix method described in Stylin' with CSS so I guess that means the method is mainstream and immortalized for all time. Once again, way to go, Tony.

Shouldn't they have sent you a complimentary copy? Smile

If your web page is as clever as you can make it, it's probably too clever for you to debug or maintain.

Stylin' with CSS

Just wanted to make it clear that the method was properly attributed in the book as having been created by Tony, with a reference to csscreator.com. Tony was described in very complimentary terms (but no complimentary copy, I guess - write the author and ask for an autographed one, perhaps?).

It is not a bad little CSS book and it takes an incremental approach to the subject, handling positioning issues and their use in creating different types of layouts, starting simple and working up to the more complex.

It's an honor to get mentioned, even if I don't get a free book Cool

Stylin' with CSS

Is this book worth getting to learn CSS from or is it more for the experienced CSS coder?

Stylin' with CSS

I don't own it, just browsed it at a bookstore. It is servicable, taking a progressive approach from simple to more complex layouts. The explanations of why things are done are adequate but not stunning. There is a bit a repetition that is not needed, I think, but then for someone learning that might be useful review so it is not necessarily bad. It is good but not great. Eric Meyer's Cascading Style Sheets The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition from O'Reilly is probably one of the best, but again, I don't own it, having only browsed it. I have learned all I know from online resources and forum discussions and my own failed experiments.
