We’re proud to announce our chapter on “jQuery UI Theming,” in the new jQuery Cookbook, from O’Reilly Media. The chapter covers styling jQuery UI widgets with ThemeRoller, overriding layout and theme styles, applying themes to non-jQuery UI components, and referencing multiple themes on page. If you’re interested in mastering jQuery UI Theming for your own websites and applications, it’s the most thorough resource you’ll find on the topic. We highly recommend picking up a copy!
