Overview

Web Development and Design Foundations with XHTML, Fourth Edition, includes everything you need to develop highly effective Web sites. In addition to comprehensive coverage of XHTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and Web design best practices, this book presents information on accessibility, ethics, e-commerce, Web site promotion strategies, and JavaScript™. CSS has become a standard for Web design, so this edition introduces CSS early on and integrates the topic throughout the text, including CSS-based page layouts.

This book explains important Web development and design concepts and provides step-by-step presentations that show you how to implement them. With Web design focus activities, as well as Hands-On Practices, Hands-On Exercises, Web site Case Studies, and valuable reference material, this book has everything a beginning Web developer needs. This text is appropriate for a one-semester Web development course.

Topics include:

  • XHTML
  • Cascading Style Sheets
  • Accessibility standards
  • Web site design best practices
  • The Web development process
  • Multimedia and interactivity
  • E-commerce
  • Web site promotion
  • JavaScript

Additional Web develloper reference material, including an XHTML Reference, a CSS Property Reference, a Comparison of HTML and XHTML, and an overview of the Section 508 Standards, is included in the Web Developer's Handbook Appendixes.

Supporting materials, including Adobe® Dreamweaver® CS3 tutorials, an introduction to FTP, a bonus chapter on XHTML frames, and student starter files for all chapters, are available at www.aw.com/felke. A complimentary access code for this Web site is included with a new copy of this book. Subscriptions may also be purchased online.

    A great book for instructions for XHTML.

    This is a great book for instructions to XHTML. The history of the WWW. The websites to visit for follow up information and the code itself is just great. My favorite part is the checkpoint the Web Research and study guides. Thank you!

    Great Textbook for Your First Web Design/Development Course

    We use this book in a community college course for both online and face-to-face classes. The students really like the hands-on approach with examples, practice exercises and case studies.

    The 4th Edition of this popular textbook integrates XHTML and CSS topics so students learn from the beginning how to use both XHTML and CSS to configure text, color, and page layout. There is also excellent coverage of web design best practices, accessibility, usability, and Web standards.

    A bonus is the textbook's companion website at webdevfoundations.net that has a page for each chapter with chapter links, additional information, flash review puzzles, iPod review quizzes, and chapter updates.

    GREAT Book For Beginning Web Designers -- integrates XHTML & CSS

    This is an excellent textbook for a beginning web design course. The book introduces XHTML and CSS, web standards, web accessibility and web design best practices. The book's website at webdevfoundations.net contains related links, additional/new information, and chapter updates. The hands-on exercises encourage active learning. The Student Files provide solutions to these so that students can self-assess their progress. There are four case studies that continue throughout the book that provide opportunities for students to apply their newly-learned concepts and skills. What really sold me on this textbook is the way it integrates XHTML, CSS, AND accessibility!
