Looking for recommendations on CSS how-to books that include a good listing of elements and attributes, as well as an explanation of usage and browser compatibility. Is there such an animal? If so, I'd love to hear some suggestions. (I know it's info that's pretty freely available online, but would like a hard copy to peruse at my pleasure -- if you want to call it that...)

Thanks,

Terry

Eric Meyer is the king of CSS and has quite a few 'definitive' books.
Cascading Style Sheets 2.0 - ISBN 0-07-213178-0
is hard to beat.

I mentioned the Christopher Schmitt or another post a few days ago and put a few links to reviews.

Glasshaus had a CSS book out a while ago, they're supposed to be updating it at the moment to include CSS-P. I've not read this tome but their books on PHP were pretty good so maybe it's worth checking out the CSS one.

Glasshaus have been bought out by another publisher but their website was still up and running last time I looked.

Jeffery Zeldman's Designing With Web Standards is pretty good. Zeldman not only knows the subject, but he's a talented and entertaining writer as well.
