Thanks Dan, Bulletproof web design is one we had been thinking of...

As far as the other, I'd not thought of that, I will look it up on Safari.

CSS, DHTML and AJAX Visual Quickstart Guide by Jason Cranford Teague.

It may be a little advanced, but if you use this book and only cover up to Ajax, the user then can read on their own.  The book $18.26 at BUY.com
http://www.buy.com/retail/product.asp?sku=202455699&listingid=14378739&dcaid=17902

Another good ol favorite is Bulletproof web design.

Howdy yens!

We're looking for some suggestions for books for HTML/CSS design with positioning...Goals we have in mind for the books based on some issues we've noted from other books we've read:


1. Graphical over text descriptions...

2. Fewer explanations of the "whys" of things (such as Why the W3C chose this or that tag over another one)..

3. Keeps newer users in mind but doesn't go into details that we already know (ie. What the heck is the internet....um..cough)

4. Geared towards CSS positioning rather than table based design.

5. Cheap (ok we're not gonna find that Kevin says sooooooooo skip to 5a...

5a. Skip to 6.

6. Lots of examples...

7. Not geared to a particular program (ie dreamweaver, front page...."Just the code ma'am, Just the code..."

8, Really what we are looking for how to over concepts...so for instance I love the book "Don't make me think", but he doesn't get too much into the code...

Any suggestions are welcome and kindly regarded

Joseph James Frantz
