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 :-/

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.
