Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
These two books are invaluable for serious web designers. Holzschlag provides a detailed, advanced training guide in web design with lots of examples, illustrations, and explanations of what to do and why. Schmeiser's presentation is even more interesting because she eschews advanced explanation and training in the traditional sense. She does offer pages of illustrations of the templates that can be found on the CD-ROM. The reader sees something neat, swipes it off the CD-ROM, and then begins to understand the code by changing it to fit specific needs. The learning is actually more natural and intuitive. Schmeiser is for all medium-sized collections, and Holzschlag is the next choice.
