  • Offers 500 pages of insider techniques to improve workflow and efficiency, save development time and money, and increase search engine rankings and site traffic, whether designers want to enhance an existing Web site or build a state-of-the-art site from scratch
  • Covers topics such as HTML, XHTML, CSS, graphics and multimedia, cell phone and PDA accessibility, content development, tools, usability, information architecture, globalization, and site redesign
  • Molly Holzschlag is a steering committee member of the Web Standards Project (WaSP) and spokesperson for the World Organization of Webmasters, as well as a frequent lecturer at industry conferences and the author of twenty-five previous books

Synopsis:

Web design has come a long way in just over a decade. The concerns facing Web designers are so complex and changing so rapidly that it’ s overwhelming.  From a consumer perspective, Web designs and redesigns can be very expensive. The purpose of this book is to provide today’ s working Web designer with all the top-flight information he or she needs to know to get up to speed with the best practices and standards being used by today’ s practical but progressive Web sites such as ESPN and Wired News. The goal is to improve workflow, develop rich designs that can be accessed by numerous browsers and alternative devices such as cell phones and PDAs, improve ROI all around by significantly reducing bandwidth and increasing revenue, and managing sites for the long-term.

 

Focusing on theory, standards, and rigid practices can be dry and boring.  "250 HTML and Web Design Secrets takes a fresh and fun approach by providing insider techniques that will help designers get the information they need. Instead of teaching individual languages or technologies, the lessons here are broken down into specific “ secrets” that help readers immediately improve their current sites, help them build new sites that are exciting visually, extremely portable, and cross-platform compatible This book helps them manage redesigns, and take their sites out of the past and into a successful future.
