While the Monitor and Merrimack are the most famous of the Civil War ironclads, the Confederacy had another ship in its flotilla that carried high hopes and a metal hull. The makeshift CSS Arkansas, completed by Lt. Isaac Newton Brown and manned by a mixed crew of volunteers, gave the South a surge of confidence when it launched in 1862. For 28 days of summer, the ship engaged in five battles with Union warships, falling victim in the end only to her own primitive engines. The saga of the CSS Arkansas represents the last significant Rebel naval activity in the war’s Western theater.

Print designers work in images, shapes, and color: not code. The last thing many of them want to do is to translate their work into mono-spaced tags and numbers, divs and ids. But print designers can't ignore the web and producing a design for the web has become a common part of a complete graphics package. And, knowing the basics of CSS is an essential ingredient for success. CSS for Print Designers presents web design concepts using metaphors that make sense to visual designers. Instead of using terms like semantics and structure, the book simplifies the language of web design using metaphors that print designers are comfortable with such as grouping like items or sculpting a layout from top to bottom or even how using sprites with CSS is like importing and cropping images in InDesign. The book uses efficient use of space with supporting graphics that demonstrate complex concepts such as nesting tags, clearing floats, and creating sprites.
