Professional Web Design: Techniques and Templatesby Clint Eccher, Eric Hunley, Erik Simmons
Whether you are an intermediate Web designer looking to take your sites to
the next level or a more experienced designer looking to improve your
professional skills, you will find the tools to meet your needs in
Professional Web Design: Techniques and Templates, Second Edition. This
completely updated version of the best-selling book features the 50
professional-quality, license-free Web design templates from the original, as
well as 15 new templates, all of which can be easily customized and extended.
Each ready-to-use design includes a homepage, and one second-level page, and the
framework to build subsequent pages. All of the specific techniques that are
required for building these and other highly usable sites have been updated to
CS, and PHP. Also included are five new HTML e-mail templates, an increasingly
important marketing tool. Detailed tutorials and hands-on projects teach both
basic and sophisticated design concepts, including how to create designs for
low, medium, or high content sites and the strengths and weaknesses of each. The
new edition also includes four new chapters on Cascading Style Sheets, using
client-side scripting, creating dynamic sites, and an overview of the new Web
designs. It covers important topics such as client- and server-side scripting,
security, and using databases to update a site's content.

This book did not contain the content that I expected. Since I bought it as a Nookbook, I oouldn't return it. I continue to be very disappointed with the book and the Nookbook process.
