I have to admit, since I learned HTML back in 1995/1996, my layout and design skills have also been stuck in that era. I admit, I’m not a artistic, visual UI design GUI guru, I just don’t have that artistic flair, but I do from time to time have to write HTML. I’m aware the layout of HTML has moved on since heavy use of nested HTML Tables and that I should be using CSS for both visual style and layout, but I have not had the time or the need to make the jump to investigate how I do layouts with CSS.
This book however, CSS: The Missing Manual, looks like it is worth a read, and from the review on Slashdot, looks like it would fill in some blanks for me in terms of my current knowledge of CSS. This one will be on my wishlist.
