There is one in development, but not in the shops yet. The July 96 issue
of WebSmith magazine had an article (by myself) which tried to give an
overview of CSS. Subscription and back-issue information can I gather be
obtained from websmith@ssc.com

An online version of the WebSmith article is available. A browser that
supports CSS gives best results ;-) Disclaimer - it was written in
Jan/Feb 1996, things have moved on since then.

If you want to poke around and read the stylesheets, the directory
is browsable

I guess I should move this stuff over to the W3C site and update it.
