CSS gives Web designers control over the appearance of their web sites by separating the visual presentation from the content. It lets them easily make minor changes to a site or perform a complete overhaul of the design. In CSS Web Site Design, instructor and leading industry expert Eric Meyer reviews the essentials of CSS, including selectors, the cascade, and inheritance. The training also covers how to build effective navigation, how to lay out pages, and how to work with typography, colors, backgrounds, and white space. Using a project-based approach, Eric walks through the process of creating a Web page, while teaching the essentials of CSS along the way. By the end of the training, viewers will have the tools to master professional site design. Exercise files accompany the training videos.
Well this movie sadly brings us to the end of our time together. If you enjoyed learning about CSS, and I hope you did, then there are some related lynda.com titles you should check out. There's the CSS for Designers, featuring the excellent Molly Holzschlag and Andy Clarke and there's also Learning XHTML if you want to dig back into the markup side of things, and get to know XHTML inside and out. There're also some resources online that you could try.
The first one css-discuss.org is actually a website for a mailing list that you could join if you like getting tons and tons of e-mail and the average is 50 or 60 messages per day. That's why I say try the wiki if you don't want to set up for that much e-mail. There's a link up at the top of css-discuss.org to the wiki, which is an interactive online FAQ that stills some of the collective wisdom of the members of the CSS discuss mailing list, over several years, so it's something like a very large CSS frequently asked questions lists that has been collectively created by that community.
There are these other resources as well, any of which I commend most highly and so with that I will take my leave. Thank you very much for all of your time and interest and hopefully we will meet again.
