Liquid or fluid layouts change width based on the user's unique device viewing size. These types of layouts have always been possible with tables but offer new design challenges as well as opportunities when built with CSS. This book, for experienced Web designers with some CSS experience, outlines how to do this successfully.
Designers will learn the benefits of flexible layouts and when to choose a liquid, elastic, or hybrid design. They will learn not only how to build a liquid layout from scratch using standards-compliant and cross-browser compatible (X)HTML and CSS, but will also learn how to design and slice their graphic comps in a way that makes flexible design achievable. This book will show designers that flexible layouts do not have to be visually boring or difficult to build when planned and built correctly. Even those who do not intend to build liquid layouts can use the concepts and techniques taught in this book to improve their fixed-width CSS designs, because they will learn how to design for the inherent flexibility of the web medium, instead of the rigid qualities of print media or table grid-based layouts.
"Another excellent resource comes to us courtesy of Zoe Mickley Gillenwater <http://zomigi.com/> . She’s written a book called Flexible Web Designs <http://flexiblewebbook.com/> . Buy it now. You won’t regret it. I thought I knew my stuff when it came to wrangling CSS but this book had techniques that were new to me. ..." -- Jeremy Keith
"If you want to know more about creating liquid and elastic layouts, you should read Flexible Web Design by Zoe Mickley Gillenwater. I heard about the book on Twitter (via Malarkey) and I bought it almost straight away. I started reading it recently and my first impressions are that this is the best book I have bought in some time. The book describes flexible layout types in some detail and explains how to achieve these with CSS. It really is a worthwhile read if you are new to flexible layouts…. or even if you are a regular ‘flexible web designer’." -- Clive Walker
"The biggest two flaws that this book has is that it wasn't published many years ago and not all web designers have a copy of it. There isn't much that can be done about the first of these and the situation regarding the second will resolve itself gradually as more web designers find out about the book and buy a copy. This book goes into great detail on a number of important techniques for styling web pages with CSS that will be useful to anyone creating web pages. The step by step approach not only shows you how to solve the specific layouts that the book covers but also show very clearly the approach to take to resolve the layout of any web page with CSS." -- Stephen Chapman

Thank you so much for getting this out there.
Not only do the examples in the book provide solutions to many real world problems with web page layout but copies of all the code are available to download allowing you to use these solutions for your own web page designs without having to rewrite it. The book sets out a number of clear objectives with respect to liquid layouts, elastic layouts, hybrid layouts, handling space and backgrounds, and even how to make foreground images more flexible and it shows with extremely clear step by step how each of these objectives is achieved. The book even takes into account the earlier steps in the design process and how to prepare all through the design process so that you will not have to backtrack to achieve the desired end result.
No assumptions are made as to what tools you will be using to create your content or what browser that your visitors will be using to access it. Also, while the book deals specifically with flexible layouts, it acknowledges that fixed layouts also exist and may be more appropriate in certain situations.
In the acknowledgements in the front of the book the author thanks a number of really well known people in the field of web design who have inspired and taught her. I am sure that many future works which provide similar acknowledgements will include this author's name in their list.
