Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Complete and up-to-date specifications of Cascading Style Sheets, Level 2 (CSS2).

* Ideal for program designers, HTML Web page authors, and others who need to keep abreast of current publishing standards for the World Wide Web.

* Describes how to attach a style sheet to an HTML document so that its appearance (fonts, colors, spacing) can be accurately defined.

* Explains "cascading" nature of style sheets-enables users to set display preferences.

Style sheets describe how documents are presented on screens, in print, or even how they are pronounced when spoken using a computerized speech synthesizer. The specifications for Cascading Style Sheets Specification, Level 2, have been prepared by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), an independent and international standards body devoted to furthering the technologies used on the World Wide Web. The W3C has produced two recommendations (CSS1 and CSS2) which are widely, although not consistently, implemented in browsers, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator. The CSS2 specifications are an enhancement of the earlier CSS1 specifications, and provide greater control and flexibility in rendering a page on screen or paper.

By attaching style sheets to documents on the Web authors and readers can influence the presentation of documents without sacrificing device-independence or adding new HTML tags. This book contains the complete and most up-to-date version currently available of the CSS2 specification. It's designed to be a handy desktop companion, saving you the time and expense of printing the documentation yourself. It is also useful when viewing the online version of the CSS2 specifications is inconvenient.
