  • By Our man in Berkshire on 28 May 2011

    Haven't used it that much as have other css books I use for reference too. When I look up a problem in the book, I find that I would like more answers/solutions. e.g. How to position images vertically using css. The answer given involves using the exact dimensions for each image. So if they're different heights you need to do the maths on every image and know the height of every image. This is probably the only way, I'd just like it to be easier. The obvious answer to me was make all the images the same height to make things quicker.Overall the book seems pretty good though. Very handy for checking rules you can't remember very well. Very handy to have to hand.
