    HTMLGoodies is notorious for incomplete and/or incomplete information, and its CSS tutorial is no exception The difinitive resource on CSS is http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/.

    For books check out Eric Meyer on CSS, and Beginning JavaScript from Wrox. The CSS book is more of a pratical usage of CSS, and the JS book is for newbies. Wrox books tend to be my favorites.

    Hey!

    I used 2 books, which I highly recommend:

    1) SAMS TEACH YOURSELF CSS IN 24 HOURS - Kynn Bartlett (I think).

    2) ERIC MEYER ON CSS.


    The first book is for beginners. it lays out the CSS in a really easy, step by step fashion. What I like about it is it talks a lot about browser compatability... which is still the achilles heel of CSS. The end of each chapter has a "browser report card" which tells you how well each rule is supported by the various browsers. Note that as browsers improve this will eventually become a moot point.

    The second book takes real life page examples and "does them up" with CSS. Eric Meyer knows his stuff, and I highly recommend his book. it does NOT teach CSS, though... more HOW TO USE CSS. That is why I put this as the second book if you are a beginner.


    ...hope that helps!

    I'll agree with anything above involving the name "Eric Meyer", and add the name "Jeffrey Zeldman". There's a whole heap of good links on both those sites.

    this article is a good run through CSS positioning and the Box Model.

    Sections eight and nine, in particular, of the CSS 2 spec are well worth a read. A bit heavy going in places, but often very informative. (actually, that goes for most of the CSS2 spec)

    This article also has a bunch of practical examples.

    Finally, my advice to anyone attempting CSS stuff is:
    • start with plain text.
    • mark it up semantically (paragraphs, headers, lists, blockquotes, and maybe a div or two)
    • now, *play* with the CSS. Poke, prod, tweak, and generally fiddle with it, and see what happens.

    I would also recommend that you check out:

    http://www.westciv.com/courses/free/index.html

    Their free course on CCS Level 1 is just ending but CSS Level 2 will be starting in 2 weeks. CSS2 incorporates all of CSS1 and then takes you beyond.

    You might also take a look at Dave Raggett's site:

    http://www.w3.org/MarkUp/Guide/Style

    Can't help myself, but if you don't already have a good HTML editor, try HTML KIt. Best of all, it's free! Includes a great validator, FTP tool, among lots of other goodies. Get it at:

    http://www.chami.com/html-kit/

    I'm a newbie who recently migrated from FrontPage, and I love my HTML Kit editor. I stay in control and my code stays standards compliant.


    Another wonderful site where you can pick up all sorts of wonderful CSS tips is:

    http://www.wpdfd.com/

    Good luck!
