    Looking for a good CSS reference manual

    I need a good CSS reference manual. I looked for downloadable online ones but didn't find anything. I know I can find anything I want to look up on MDN (Mozilla Developers Network), but I don't like hunting and pecking between hundreds of individual web pages to find what I want.

    What I really want is a printed copy I can browse through. With a complete reference to all CSS components.

    So maybe I should just buy a CSS reference book. Can anyone suggest a good one?

    I want:
    • Fairly up-to-date information, including CSS 3
    • A reference to plain CSS, not any kind of "framework"
    • Something written in plain English (which excludes the horrible W3C documentation!)
    • A complete reference guide to all CSS elements

    I said I want is a printed copy, either something downloadable or a book. Not the MDN web site, which has all the information I need, except that it's spread out over hundreds and hundreds of individual pages. I don't like switching back and forth between tabs. Much easier to browse printed pages.
