Two Meyers

Photographer Eric Meyer invites you to reassemble his photographs on the fly (not to be confused with on-the-fly eyeball distortion).

Coincidentally, I’m in the middle of reading O’Reilly’s Cascading Style Sheets: The Definitive Guide, by a different Eric Meyer. The book is very thorough, but I can’t help but think it would actually be more useful in a more terse format. I want to hear everything he has to say, but I want him to do it with fewer words. But I know well how much harder it is to write something short than long.

  1. Have you seen Meyer’s latest CSS book, “Eric Meyer on CSS”? I think it’s a great resource for how to solve web design problems using CSS. Each chapter in the book focuses on solving a different design problem. Start with a HTML page chock-full-o’ <FONT>, <TABLE>, <B>, etc. tags and finish with a more manageable design that separates data from layout and style.

    (actually, that might be over-simplifying things a bit, but you get the idea…)
