Hello,

The title of the book seems interesting. I have two questions about this book:


1- Will this book improve my sense of design. I mean give me new design ideas and inspire new imaginations or just it is a technical book on CSS and HTML.


2- I am a Java Web Developer who is not directly involved in web page design. Is this book for me

Thanks in advance.

Will "Pro CSS and HTML Design Patterns" improve my sense of design?
Pro CSS and HTML Design Patterns focuses on the technical patterns you need to use to code a design.

Thus, if you code web pages, this book is a must read. It is one of the few books on CSS written for the programmer rather than the designer. This book helps you translate a design into code that will reliably and accurately recreate the design.

My book doesn't teach how to design the look-and-feel of a web page. But, it will give you ideas on web-page layout, such as fluid layout, bread crumbs, tabs, rollups, popups, menus, etc.

To get a feel for what is in my book, you can visit its website and look all the examples in the book: http://cssdesignpatterns.com
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
