I just purchased the CSS missing manual 4th edition. I went to www.missingmanuals.com to download the files for the book. When I clicked on Download all tutorial files there, I got the message: The requested URL /0636920036357/CSS4e_MM_TUTORIALS.zip was not found on this server. The book is useless without the files. Thank you.

The text mistakenly shows "h2+p" in the last paragraph of the page on sibling selectors when it intended to how "h2~p": There’s another sibling selector called the general sibling combinatory selector (say that three times fast). It’s simply a ~ (tilde) and it means “select all siblings of this type.” For example, while h2 + p selects a single <p> tag that immediately follows an <h2> tag, h2+p selects all <p> tags that are siblings (that is, on the same level) of the h2.

I think there are two background-colors listed in steps $5 and #7...this was different from step #4. "background-color: rgb(153,153,153) background-color: rgba(153,153,153,.9)"

"For example, if you save the this file as, you'd add this HTML to the <head> of a web page:" - "the this" is a typo.

Caption for Figure 15-5

It says "The images don't quite fit, and hang outside the columns as pictured here." - But I can't see and hangings on the picture provided. In order to see this, user have to narrow the window width first.

Caption for Figure 15-7

It says: "From three columns to two columns, with one media query and three simple styles." - but the figure illustrates the render of query with only one style applied, the other two styles would make the two columns take the whole width and remove the right border of the main column.

The code

... <!-- 12 unit wide column --> <div class="one columns"> <!-- article text here --> </div> ... If we want column to be a single column that takes whole width, it should be <div class="twelve columns">

2nd sentence

The 2nd sentence on the page currently states: "In addition, if you have more than one row, their total width must come to exactly 12 units." The sentence should be corrected to use "column" instead of "row", i.e.: "In addition, if you have more than one column, their total width must come to exactly 12 units."

Figure 16-3

Figure doesn't illustrate the 12-unit wide column, while the skeleton has this class and the paragraph above the figure says that "You can create columns of different widths ranging from a single unit to 12". I think it would be nice to add 12-unit wide column as the last column to the figure.

Last paragraph at step 10.

"... it's just a class name you can use can style this section of the page." - I'm not sure if it's clear? Maybe it have to be replaced with "you can use to style..."?

Code at step 6.

If you take a look at Figures 16-9, 16-11, 16-12 and 16-13 you may notice a padding / margin between the top section and the info section, but there is no code provided for that. I think the right place for that might be the .header class, so the code should look like this: ./* Mobile first queries */ /* applies to ALL widths */ .header { padding: 50px 0 70px 0; background-image: url(../imgs/header.jpg); background-size: cover; margin-bottom: 20px; }

"(additions in bold)" should be removed since it's the first time we are adding a code inside the min-width: 550px media query.

Finished design.

The finished design provided in the 16_finished folder greatly differs from what the book says, it has different footer, it's missing important properties for .logo at the 550px breakpoint, it uses different properties / class names which were not presented in the tutorial as well.

1st Bullet Point

The sentence which says: "Confusingly, if you choose the row-reverse direction, the flex-start option aligns all items to the left." should instead say: "Confusingly, if you choose the row-reverse direction, the flex-start option aligns all items to the right."

The code

The sentence before the code says "For example to get the layout pictured in #5 in Figure 17-6, you could use CSS code like this:" If we take a look in #5 in Figure 17-6 we will see that the space not only distributed between the rows, but also added to the top and bottom, which means that it's align-content: space-around; property, but the code below uses space-between which is #4 in Figure.

Compiled code

"The Sass command will compile that code into this: .btn, .btn-order, .btn-delete, .btn-cancel {" - it won't compile the code into this, because %btn is a placeholder, and won't appear in the compiled CSS file. The correct code is: ".btn-order, .btn-delete, .btn-cancel {"

Second code.

"h1 { @include text(1.25em, 1.2, bold, #FF0000); } The resulting CSS that Sass creates would look like this: h1 { font-size: 2em; line-height: 1.2; font-weight: bold; color: #FF000; }" The values for the font-size and color in the compiled version are incorrect. Should be: "h1 { font-size: 1.25em; line-height: 1.2; font-weight: bold; color: #FF0000; }"

"content" section

"Use this property with the :after or :before pseudo-elements." - pseudo-elements uses double colon in CSS3, so the sentence should be "Use this property with the ::after or ::before pseudo-elements.", and the code below also need to be fixed: "p.advert::before { content: "And now a word from our sponsor..."; } a::after { content: " (" attr(href) ") "; }"
