Speaking In Styles breaks down the walls between code and style, explaining in simple examples how to describe your designs for the online world. Find out what makes a Web page work and what tools you need to build one. Learn the syntax, semantics, and vocabulary of CSS without the technical jargon. Use CSS to describe the typography, color, images, and user interface of your designs. Stay up-to-date using this book's Web site: www.speaking-in-styles.com.
