    Hi,
    I am a new JavaScript and CSS fan… I have been a .NET developer (little bit.. last 2 years) and found myself recently with a lot of interest in JavaScript (especially jQuery) and CSS.

    I want to build solid CSS foundation. Please suggest some good books for CSS.

    For jQuery, I have started Learning jQuery 1.3 .. which looks like pretty interesting book.

    Thanks,
    Pawan Pillai

    I think the web is the best resource for learning CSS. Have a look round subscribe to rss feeds, follow of twitter and all that and you will learn quickly and discover great resource’s for other things aswell. W3schools is a great site for learning the basics. Looking around the articles and screencasts for CSS-Tricks and other blogs. If you get stuck on anything just do a search on google for a solution like Rob who posts on this forum did a great post in the sometimes tricky art of CSS positioning; or post on forums like this one. and finally try things out, build simple web pages that display CSS techniques like positioning so you can see for yourself the effects of changes you make to the HTML/CSS. Sorry I went on but I hope it helped a bit.

    I found Bulletproof Web Design by Dan Cederholm invaluable.
