CSS Kochbuch

by Christopher Schmitt Joergen Lang

Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) bieten unendliche Möglichkeiten, das Design einer Website gezielt und individuell zu gestalten. Mit CSS3 sind noch einmal viele Features hinzugekommen, auf die viele Designer schon lange gewartet haben: ob Schattenwürfe, abgerundete Ecken oder die Einbindung von Webfonts - ein genauer Blick auf die neuen Gestaltungsmöglichkeiten lohnt sich. Diese dritte Auflage des CSS Kochbuchs wurde grundlegend überarbeitet, aktualisiert und erweitert. In mehr als 200 Rezepten finden Sie Antworten auf gängige bis vertrackte Problemstellungen, denen Webdesigner immer wieder begegnen. CSS-Grundlagen: Der erste Teil des Buchs beschäftigt sich mit grundlegenden CSS-Techniken. Hier erfahren Sie Wissenswertes über die Auswahl und Gestaltung von Seitenelementen und erhalten Tipps rund um die Typografie fürs Web. Natürlich wird auch der Umgang mit Bildern behandelt. Fortgeschrittenere Techniken: Erfahren Sie, wie Sie Formulare, Tabellen und Listen gestalten und ins Layout Ihrer Seite einbetten. Lernen Sie, wie Sie Links und Navigationen optimal gestalten und Effekte wie Rollover, aufklappbare Menüs oder Tooltips mit CSS erzeugen. Seitenlayout und Design: Mit CSS lassen sich ein-, zwei und mehrspaltige Layouts umsetzen, die Sie wahlweise mit festen oder flexiblen Breiten versehen können. Dank der CSS3-Media Queries können Sie nun auch einfach feststellen, ob mit einem Desktop-Rechner, Smartphone oder Tablet auf Ihre Site zugegriffen wird und deren Ausgabe genau für das entsprechende Gerät optimieren. CSS 2.1 und CSS3: CSS3 ist noch relativ jung und wird nicht von allen Browsern gleich gut unterstützt. Dem trägt das Kochbuch Rechnung, indem CSS3-basierte Lösungen angeboten werden, wenn die Browserunterstützung schon sehr breit ist. Alle anderen Rezepte des Buchs basieren auf CSS 2.1.
