I’ve begun working on the next edition of the CSS Cookbook.
In late 2006, the second edition of the CSS Cookbook came out. Even though not every book is perfect, I felt I did what I set out to do in making a solid edition. Almost twice the size of the first edition, the second edition features more CSS-based solutions and tutorials. Heck, it even made Best Web Design Book of the Year with only months to spare.
With the new edition I already have in mind what I would like to add in the new edition: revised recipes, more CSS3-based approaches, and, yes, HTML5.
When writing books, I always try to envision what a Web developer or designer would like to have in their hands. Often times, this is easy since the person I’m writing the book for is often me.
Like the case when I made my Web Design Mousepad. I made it for me, but was humbled and flattered to find out that other people wanted one of their own desk, too.
But there’s always something I leave out that would be a good idea to include–and when you are close to the end of pushing out a book, adding almost any new material becomes hard. Therefore, I thought it would be a good idea to toss this question to you:
What would you like to see included in the new edition of the CSS Cookbook?
