    Can anyone recommend a book for a beginner to learn CSS. I have a decent
    understanding of HTML.

    Thanks

    Hi,

    try this Homepage:

    http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_reference.asp
    I think a better reference you couldn't get.

    Kind regards

    For a *reference* only the w3c spec will do.

    Seeing as the OP is looking to *learn* CSS it would have been better had
    you pointed him to w3school's CSS tutorial:
    http://www.w3schools.com/css/css_intro.asp With an added warning that it
    contains errors and that w3schools has no affiliation with w3c.

    Outstanding book for beginners, and great to leave on the shelf for a
    quick reference:

    Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide, 2nd Edition

    You can find it at Amazon.com

    Well, for some definition of "reference". The problem is that the W3C
    doesn't work like a standards body. Take a look at
    http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/#specs
    titled "CSS Specifications". What have we got here?
    CSS 3 is _under development_ (actually, a collection of drafts)
    CSS 2.1 is "candidate recommendation"
    CSS 1 is the good old specification approved in 1996, later
    modified in 1999, never actually implemented as such, and
    in some essential ways in conflict with CSS 2 (though
    most a subset thereof)

    So where's CSS 2? They don't even bother mentioning it there.
    It _is_ a W3C recommendation, but you need to find it through other
    paths, and this gives a hint of the W3C's real position on it.

    May I suggest that next time you feel the urge to have a moan about
    something you start a separate thread. Follow ups should be relevant to
    what you are replying to.
