I have been creating websites on my own for a while now and I am sick to death of getting one looking perfect in FF only to open it in IE and have it look horrible or vise versa. I then spend hours upon hours reading online articles and hacking away at my CSS to get it to render properly on both. Because of this I would like to find a book that focuses on good web design structure and cross-browser friendlyness. I have read many tricks to get things to appear properly in both but I am not looking for a cheat sheet of hacks and fixes, I want to design my code and sites based on proper standards that are also supported by the most popular browsers out there.
If anyone has any suggestions (preferably from Authors who frequent JavaRanch) please let me know and thanks!!
For jQuery, of course, I'll recommend my own book.

I'll probably end up getting it too... only 376 pages and the review sounds good.
I can't help always looking at number of pages. If your learning a language like Java then you'd expect a lot of pages and avoid books with a few, and if you're reading about a framework or tool you expect it to be much smaller and avoid the encyclopedias. I'll never forget my C++ Bible, over 1,250 pages... and not small pages either, lol... I hated that book
