Overview

Best-selling author, designer, and web standards evangelist Jeffrey Zeldman has updated his classic, industry-shaking guidebook. This new edition—now in full color—covers improvements in best practices and advances in the world of browsers since the first edition introduced the world to standards-based design. Written in the same engaging and witty style, making even the most complex information easy to digest, it remains an essential guide to creating sites that load faster, reach more users, and cost less to design and maintain.

Readers will learn from Jeffrey's insights as he demonstrates how web standards are driving search engine friendliness ("findability") and the Web 2.0 applications that have reinvigorated the medium and the online marketplace. Readers will discover new techniques to make CSS layouts work better across multiple browsers and ways to make web content more accessible.

Designing with Web Standards

The Barnes & Noble Review
Once, designing with web standards was viewed as idealistic: nice, but not particularly necessary or practical. That’s changed. In the era of “Web 2.0,” findability, syndication, blogs, podcasts, AJAX, Firefox, Safari, and cellphone web access, standards are now officially indispensable. Plus, nowadays you can actually use standards without compromising your design vision or site usability. Jeffrey Zeldman can show you how.

Zeldman helped launch the web standards revolution with his classic, Designing with Web Standards. He’s now done a massive update, and his new Second Edition is invaluable. It’s where to turn when you want to convert to XHTML without the pain. When you want today’s best practices and workarounds for dealing with multiple browsers. When you want a solidly standards-based approach to great web typography. And, not least, when you need to convince your boss that standards compliance can actually make (or save) money. Bill Camarda, from the August 2006 Read Only
