CSS3 is the latest revision of Cascading Style Sheets, the language used to define the appearance and layout of web documents. A still-evolving standard, CSS3 presents a moving target for developers who need to stay abreast of which features are supported by particular web browsers.
The Book of CSS3 uses real-world examples to teach the fundamentals of the CSS3 specification, highlighting the latest developments and future features, while paying close attention to current browser implementations.
Each chapter examines a different CSS3 module, and teaches the reader to use exciting new features like web fonts, background images, gradients, 2D and 3D transformations, animation, box effects, and more.
With in-depth code samples and detailed illustrations, The Book of CSS3 doesn’t waste time teaching the basics of the language, focusing instead on the ground-breaking new possibilities that CSS3 brings to the world of web design.
