HTML and CSS Reference
CSS3, the new, modular version of
the CSS3 spec, contains many awe-
some new features that will make your web design work
easier, more flexible, and more interesting. What's not
to love? Browser support is not complete yet, but many of the
features have enough support to be useful in a production envi-
ronment, and you can work around nonsupporting browsers.
In this chapter I'll provide the rationale behind why the new
version came about and gently preach a manifesto of modern
web design to you. Then I'll provide a brief roundup of the CSS3
modules before examining some of the general new features of
CSS3 that are useful to explore as background knowledge before
you go any further.
