I'm a very experienced developer and would like an expert recommendation on a CSS book. I know CSS, but I've been reading a lot about using CSS versus tables and a bunch of other things and need a good kick-start book into what can and can't be done using CSS.
I don't have time to site down and trial and error.
I've downloaded TopStyle to help build some fairly complex CSS stuff, but some things I want to do are out of my current realm of expertise:
* How to create a portal-like display using columns with DIVs and still maintain wrapping text, etc.
* A lot of things I used tables for such as a row of header labels, how can you do this using DIV/SPAN without using absolute positioning? Even with relative I could only get it to work using relative and then positioning DIV's inside of the outer DIV.
I've got a bunch of other scenarios I'd like to do work out, but I don't have the time to play around with all of the CSS elements; so a good book with some advanced examples would be great.
Thanks for this recommendation, friend. I got both these books and am halfway through the second one. They're fantastic reading for someone (like me) who is familar with CSS but just doesn't get how the big boys use it. I'll be vastly improving my web sites now.
