CSS3 adds powerful new functionality to the web’s visual style language to help you create beautiful and engaging designs more easily than ever. With CSS3, you can create eye-catching visual effects such as semitransparent backgrounds, gradients, and drop shadows without using images; display text in beautiful, unique, non-web-safe fonts; create animations without Flash; and customize a design to the user’s unique device or screen size without JavaScript.

You’ll learn how to accomplish these effects and more by working through a series of practical yet cutting-edge projects. Each chapter walks you through standalone exercises that you can integrate into projects you’re working on, or use as inspiration. You’ll learn all of the most popular, useful, and well-supported CSS3 techniques, plus:

  • How to use CSS3 to enhance your pages, not just in terms of looks, but also in terms of usability, accessibility, and efficiency
  • When and how to provide workarounds and fallbacks for older, non-supporting browsers
  • How to create stunning designs with unique typography and beautiful graphic details
  • Advanced new selectors to streamline your markup and make it less prone to human errors
  • New methods for creating multiple-column layouts
  • How to quickly and easily create mobile-optimized web designs without using scripting
