There is a LOT of buzz right now about the strength of web technologies for all kinds of development.

CSS has always been a bit of a black art to me but as I’ve embraced developing with jQuery I’ve needed to develop some level of expertise.

With HTML 5 and CSS 3 we get an incremental expansion of features.

I got “The Book of CSS3” by Peter Gasston from the folks at No Starch Press.

It covers the new features of CSS3 and all the fancy stuff but has solid practical guidance for developers on how to do things like layout and columns (which I have struggled with.)

I also found the sections on using the visual features of things like transforms, animations, gradients, and fonts very useful.
