In this video, CSS guru Andy Clarke, author of Transcending CSS: The Fine Art of Web Design, takes a step back and teaches some fundamental concepts about designing using CSS and working with a range of browser tools to open up the creative opportunities.

You will learn how to design for the Web by using the browser and how to lay the foundations for your designs using meaningful and accessible markup. You’ll also learn about the fundamentals of CSS typography and color, and how to lay out pages using CSS floats, positioning, and columns.

Andy demonstrates these concepts using examples from a fictitious social networking site he created.
