Chapter 6 Page Layout
You’ve already configured the centered page layout with CSS. We’ll add to your toolbox of CSS page layout techniques in this chapter, starting with the box model. You’ll explore floating and positioning elements with CSS. You’ll be introduced to using CSS to add interactivity to hyperlinks with pseudo-classes and use CSS to style navigation in unordered lists..
CSS pseudo-classes are used in combination with background images to configure image "rollovers". When using CSS Sprites, you take this a step further: combine all multiple background images in one file and use positioning properties to display the appropriate image.
Web-based sprite generators can help you get up and running with CSS Sprites quickly. See the following tutorials for an introduction to this popular technique
