CSS Instant Results helps you quickly master and implement the diverse web applications CSS enables for web designers. The book is centered around ten ready-to-use projects with all the code for all the projects included on the books CD-ROM - that you can use immediately. CSS Instant Results dives into working code so you can learn it rapidly. The book and code projects are written for web developers and designers who are looking to learn how to use CSS for better, faster design and markup. Some previous JavaScript use is helpful.

Each of the 10 project features step-by-step set-up instructions with a description of each project that enables you to understand and then modify it so you can reuse it in different situations.

The code has been tested with several browsers including Mozilla Firefox 1.0, Opera 8, Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 for Windows, and Safari 1.3 for Mac OS X. The 10 projects covered in the book with complete source-code on the CD are:

  • Tab-based navigation

  • Web-based slideshow
