About this book

Beginning CSS3 teaches you how to style web pages using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)—the language of web design. Starting from first principles, you’ll learn through a series of practical exercises how to change the default look of HTML tags, adding color, backgrounds, and borders. The book demystifies core concepts, such as the CSS box model and selectors, giving you the confidence and knowledge to create innovative and flexible page layouts. You’ll also learn how to create rounded corners, drop shadows, and gradients without the need for images, using the latest CSS3 techniques.

About the authors

David Powers is an Adobe Community Expert for Dreamweaver and author of a series of highly successful books on PHP, including PHP Solutions: Dynamic Web Design Made Easy and Foundation PHP for Dreamweaver 8. As a professional writer, he has been involved in electronic media for more than 30 years, first with BBC radio and television and more recently with the Internet. His clear writing style is valued not only in the English-speaking world; several of his books have been translated into Spanish and Polish. What started as a mild interest in computing was transformed almost overnight into a passion, when David was posted to Japan in 1987 as BBC correspondent in Tokyo. With no corporate IT department just down the hallway, he was forced to learn how to fix everything himself. When not tinkering with the innards of his computer, he was reporting for BBC television and radio on the rise and collapse of the Japanese bubble economy. Since leaving the BBC to work independently, he has built up an online bilingual database of economic and political analysis for Japanese clients of an international consultancy. When not pounding the keyboard writing books or dreaming of new ways of using PHP and other programming languages, David enjoys nothing better than visiting his favorite sushi restaurant. He has also translated several plays from Japanese.
