III. CSS for Presentation > 18. CSS Techniques

Chapter 18. CSS Techniques

By now you have a solid foundation in writing style sheets. You can style text and element boxes, create page layouts using floats, and even add subtle animation effects to your designs. But there are a few common CSS techniques that I want you to know about before we move on to learning about JavaScript in Part IV.

This chapter is a grab bag of sorts. It starts with some techniques that are part of the web developer’s basic toolkit: clearing out browser styles with a CSS reset, using images in place of text (only when necessary!), and reducing the number of server requests with CSS sprites. It moves on to general approaches and special properties for styling forms and tables. Finally—and I’ve saved the best for last—you’ll get to use media queries to create a responsive site in step-by-step exercises.
