Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is the technology that allows websites to become more than just composites of text and images - with CSS you have absolute control over even the tiniest of details. But this power comes with consequences in that each browser implements different CSS features in different ways, and some browsers don't even offer some features. But with the plug-ins in this book you get full cross-browser compatibility from 100 powerful groups of plug-ins, comprising thousands of ready to use classes that work on all major recent browsers.
