I’m going overseas next week to train people in web techniques and hopefully get them to appreciate and implement web standards in their work.
At the same time, I’m also teaching a few good friends how to customise their own blog templates using stylesheets. I guess it’s almost like killing two birds with one stone, although the former task is much wider in scope and has to be properly documented. Which explains why I’m still in the office right now, hacking away at a decent Powerpoint presentation / tutorial.
I’ve got a long way to go, but there was one section I definitely thought I should bring up to my hapless ‘trainees’ – what books to read on CSS. So I whipped up good ol’ Amazon.com, and our very own Computer Book Centre to check on the best prices in Singapore for those titles. There were lots of comments posted by readers of each title, and I was running through each one to gauge which books were best for each group of people. Things were getting a little dry.
Hence I nearly rolled on the floor laughing when I saw this recent review by a female web design instructor, of CSS guru Eric Meyer‘s book, Mastering the Language of Web Design:
If I ever meet Eric Meyer in person, I’ll have to drop to my knees and worship him. All of his books are outstanding, but this one is his best.
Lucky guy. But I wonder what his wife will have to say about that! X-D
