CSS as well as CSS3 are covered. Basics as selectors, cascading, inheritance and the basic application areas of CSS styles (text formatting, colours, margins, padding, borders, graphics, links) are explained.
A special chapter is dedicated to transformations, transitions and animations with CSS means. Tables and forms are covered.
Eventually, the important topic of page layout is discussed and illustrated in a detailed way. Distinction is made between fixed and liquid layouts; the floating mechanism is explained, a (good) introduction into responsive web design is given. Besides this, print layouts, good habits when using CSS and a broad appendix complete the book.
The book keeps what the title promises. Some stuff might be handled a bit shorter; so, it wouldn't be necessary to explain how to use text editors. On the other hand, all is well understandable and well explained. Many hints about browser compatibility, pitfalls, differences between CSS2 and 3, HTML4 and 5 and future trends can be found. Every topic is accomplished by a detailed tutorial (possibly, a bit too detailed sometimes (but better than too short)).
