★★★★ Rachel Andrew’s 2nd edition of The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks, and Hacks is now available from Sitepoint. The book is essentially a reference, the sort of volume you grab when you need a specific answer quickly. It uses the question and answer technique.

The 101 tips cover a wide range of CSS information. A random selection of questions include:

  • How do I add borders to images?
  • How do I make a horizontal menu using CSS and lists?
  • How do I add a border to a table without using the HTML border attribute?
  • How do I hide some CSS from a particular browser?
  • How do I decide when to use a class and when to use an ID?

The book is in full color, which is nice, even if not entirely necessary. There a web site where a reader can download all the code used in the book.

The tips advocate best practices. Each answer is clear, concise but complete, and ready to be used. All in all, a useful reference.
