This is intended to be something like the CSS Cookbook. It will look at each technique in detail, and explicitly show what to put in the CSS and HTML, and why you might want to do this. The single-page Accessible HTML eBooks goes through the W3C accessibility guidelines with fewer examples than this Recipe book.
