Pro CSS for High Traffic Websites
Available from Apress and published in mid-2011, this book explores the challenges of working in large teams on websites that receive considerable traffic.
Rather than focusing on the latest and flashiest techniques for image replacement or cross-browser rounded corners, it is concerned with improving the performance of your website (both for your users' and your organisation's benefit), making it easy for newcomers to teams to easily comprehend and add to existing code and for CSS within your infrastructure to be considered from the outset and built in a sane and performant manner.
