Eric Meyer's Cascading Style Sheets is, as the second part of the title states, “The . Definitive Guide”. He provides a thorough and detailed explanation of.
In general, descendant elements inherit text-related properties, but their box-related properties are not inherited. Properties that can be inherited are color, font, letter-spacing, line-height, list-style, text-align, text-indent, text-transform, visibility, white-space and word-spacing.
Properties that cannot be inherited are background, border, display, float and clear, height, and width, margin, min- and max-height and -width, outline, overflow, padding, position, text-decoration, vertical-align and z-index.
Inheritance can be used to avoid declaring certain properties over and over again in a style sheet, allowing for shorter CSS. Inheritance in CSS is not the same as inheritance in class-based programming languages , where it is possible to define class B as "like class A, but with modifications".
However, it is not possible to define a CSS class B like that, which could then be used to style multiple elements without having to repeat the modifications. The style sheet h1 has the color pink, hence, the em element is likewise pink.
Whitespace between properties and selectors is ignored. Block items stack vertically, like paragraphs and like the items in a bulleted list. Normal flow also includes relative positioning of block or inline items, and run-in boxes. Floats A floated item is taken out of the normal flow and shifted to the left or right as far as possible in the space available.
Other content then flows alongside the floated item. Absolute positioning An absolutely positioned item has no place in, and no effect on, the normal flow of other items.
It occupies its assigned position in its container independently of other items. If an item is positioned in any way other than static, then the further properties top, bottom, left, and right are used to specify offsets and positions. Static The default value places the item in the normal flow Relative The item is placed in the normal flow, and then shifted or offset from that position.
Subsequent flow items are laid out as if the item had not been moved.
Absolute Specifies absolute positioning. The element is positioned in relation to its nearest non-static ancestor. Fixed The item is absolutely positioned in a fixed position on the screen even as the rest of the document is scrolled  Float and clear[ edit ] The float property may have one of three values.
Absolutely positioned or fixed items cannot be floated.
Other elements normally flow around floated items, unless they are prevented from doing so by their clear property. CSS, on the other hand, let a document's style be influenced by multiple style sheets by way of "cascading" styles. This evolution gave the designer more control over site appearance, at the cost of more complex HTML. Variations in web browser implementations, such as ViolaWWW and WorldWideWeb ,  made consistent site appearance difficult, and users had less control over how web content was displayed.
What if I missed egregious typos? What if nobody likes it?
Basically, the same doubts that strike most any author. This has been a longer-than-usual time coming, but as it usually does, the time has come at last. Looks great!
Will there be a companion update for the CSS pocket reference too? Will this one be there too? The book is now available on Google Play and ebooks. So far, it looks pretty definitive too.
Nearly everything that I have thought to look for is covered. Unless I am just missing it, there is no coverage of multiple column layouts using the column-count, column-gap, column-span, and related properties.
Is that just an oversight, or was there a reason that this is not covered? It was intentional. I dithered over whether or not to write it up for quite a while, but in the end it just felt too unstable and fragmented to include. It really appeals to me for print styles.
Hopefully it will fully stabilize and make it into the next edition assuming there is one. You did a fantastic job of getting what you did into the book. It was a long wait for this new edition, but it looks like it was worth it.
