  1. Looks awesome and if it’s written as well as his Transcending CSS Book, it should be a great book! Can’t wait to get it 🙂

  2. I’d been waiting for this to be released for ages, so ordered it as soon as it dropped.

    Make sure to download the example files Andy provides. It really shows what the future possibilities will be with CSS3.

    Just a shame about IE9…

  3. @Abid IE9’s seems to be coming on quite nicely now and has quite a bit of support for CSS3 + HTML5 technologies, I wouldn’t be surprised if they managed to squeeze a bit more CSS support in before launch as I know they’ve been working hard with the community and testing. I’m esp a big fan of it’s newer UI although it’s going to take something big to pry me away from FF and the extension set I use day in and out for development (Chrome still can’t touch FF on this).

    @Richard just noticed your entry whilst Google’ing about. Absolutely agreed this book is very good. I can also recommend Introducing HTML5 ( and the books from Other than that hope all is well with uni.


    1. Cheers Andy. You are welcome to Andy Clarke’s talk if you are around. Got the HTML5 book. As a teacher the idea that it looses the strictness of XHTML (you can be a sloppy coder) isn’t good.
