John’s essential guide to CSS

I once taught a workshop on CSS and in the process compiled a list of essential reading for people interested learning CSS. I’ve revamped the list below, adding a few additional articles, and reorganizing it a bit. Most of the articles are from A List Apart, but the volume of articles at A List Apart can can be overwhelming to people just to getting started. Consider this a pocket guide to the best of A List Apart with a few additional links thrown in to spice it up a bit.

The Basics

The Power of Floats and Backgrounds

Print Stylesheets & Cross-Browser Compatibility

Lists, Rollovers, & Image Replacement Techniques
