I feel confident enough in my CSS that although "More EM" is still in my Amazon cart, it's the one that's hanging on my a thread.... Zeldman.... well, it seems he's writing for someone who needs to be convinced, and that's not me. (I wish there were a sample chapter of "More EM" somewhere :-/ > If you're in PHPland, you might also check out The PHP Anthology by Harry Fuecks (2 volumes, sitepoint.com). Thanks for the recommendation.... That looks overkill for my needs, but if I were going to do more serious PHP it looks right on track. current shopping cart: Web Standards Solutions: The Markup and Style Handbook (Pioneering Series) - Dan Cederholm; Building Accessible Websites (With CD-ROM) - Joe Clark Beginning PHP 5 and MySQL: From Novice to Professional - W. J. Gilmore (I wasn't thrilled with the Welling/Thompson book, so this looks good) More Eric Meyer on CSS (Voices That Matter) - Eric A. Meyer Cart stands at $107 which is $7 over my imaginary budget. Not a huge deal, but I've still got a nagging feeling that the CSS book isn't going to be something I use (although I'm in favor of sending money Eric's way in principal ;-) I'll give it the weekend to look around and see what else I might find/what others might suggest.
