CSS book for Mac OS X? (3 posts)

    HI,

    IN the theme I found, I'm trying to move some items in the right-hand sidebar to the left one and change positining. I've never used CSS before. I got a book, CSS Web Design for Dummies.The examples in this book focus on PCs, IE, and Notepad. I'm oon a MAC, using OS X, and the examples don't even work. Can anyone suggest a book that includes examples for Macs and OS X. Or suggest how I move things in the sidebars?

    specifically, the "Search" box is part-way down the left sidebar and I would like it in the top of the right sidebar.

    thanks for any suggestions and help.

    PS: And I can't find the tag "strong" in any of the themes I've tried, nor get it to work.

    I'm a mac user, not an expert at CSS but learning - books suck at teaching stuff like this - for me anyway.

    Go download
    Simple CSS
    http://www.hostm.com/css/
    or
    CSSedit
    http://www.macrabbit.com/cssedit/

    And play around with your CSS theme.

    Better, if you can get WP running on your OSX Mac.

    Play around and make lots of mistakes - and learn.

    my a**-backwords philosophy to learning geeky stuff - your mileage may vary, however.

    CSS on a Mac shouldn't be any different than on a PC. Now how it looks in a browser...

    Eric Meyer is the number one CSS guy, Google him and I recommend his book Eric Meyer on CSS but it is perhaps a bit advanced to start with. There are a lot of online tutorials.

    strong is an HTML tag it replaced b some versions ago...

    For Mac text editors I recommend BBEdit if you want free the folks at BareBones give you TextWrangler.
