To my knowledge, there aren't any books about style sheets on the shelf as
yet.  One, _Designing_for_the_Web_With_Style_Sheets_ was supposed to have 
been published in August, and a month later it's still not out.  Here's the
info on it from amazon.com;

I cut out Amazon's price/ordering info.  To see this entry on their website,
go to;
http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ISBN=1568303068/4212-9904437-611055
Or do a search with the info I've given you up above.

I believe Hakon Lie is also working on a book, which should be very insightful
since he's the creative force behind CSS.  I don't know when that's to be
published though.  (Care to give yourself a plug, Hakon?  :-)

Wired's webmonkey has an introduction at:
http://www.webmonkey.com/html/96/34/index2a.html

Of course, W3C has info at 
http://www.w3.org/pub/WWW/TR/WD-css1

Microsoft's brief overview is at
http://www.microsoft.com/workshop/design/des-gen/ss/css-des.htm

And they (Microsoft) have a pretty good user's guide at:
http://www.microsoft.com/workshop/author/howto/css.htm

If anyone else knows of any books/URLs, I too would love to hear about them!
