Are you still designing web sites like it's 1999? If so, you're in for a surprise. Since the last edition of this book appeared five years ago, there has been a major climate change with regard to web standards. Designers are no longer using (X)HTML as a design tool, but as a means of defining the meaning and structure of content. Cascading Style Sheets are no longer just something interesting to tinker with, but rather a reliable method for handling all matters of presentation, from fonts and colors to the layout of the entire page. In fact, following the standards is now a mandate of professional web design.
The third edition covers these contemporary web design topics:
Organized so that readers can find answers quickly, Web Design in a Nutshell, Third Edition helps experienced designers come up to speed quickly on standards-based web design, and serves as a quick reference for those already familiar with the new standards and technology.

I Also Recommend:
This is an incredibly wonderful book for students. I helped teach a web page development class for a local college and this was one of the required books. While our text book ("Head First HTML") was a great "walk you through it" type book, this was a great supplemental book. It has chapters about different difficult-to-comprehend topics in web development - like image maps and linking via images - as well as quick references to non-standard characters and a great index. Even after a couple years of experience, I still refer to my "Nutshell" book for quick tips for web development.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

Had to get this book for Webmaster certification. Waste of time. You're so much better off with some other resources. This one tried too hard, to put too much, into too little. O'Reilly usually has decent books... The Webmaster in a Nutshell is better. You would likely be better off with a book in each specific topic.Was this review helpful?
