Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Build Your Own Website The Right Way Using HTML & CSS, 2nd Edition teaches web development from scratch, without assuming any previous knowledge of HTML, CSS or web development techniques. This book introduces you to HTML and CSS as you follow along with the author, step-by-step, to build a fully functional web site from the ground up.

However, unlike countless other "learn web design" books, this title concentrates on modern, best-practice techniques from the very beginning, which means you'll get it right the first time. The web sites you'll build will:

  • Look good on a PC, Mac or Linux computer
  • Render correctly whether your visitors are using Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, or Safari
  • Use web standards so your sites will be fast loading and easy to maintain
  • Be accessible to disabled users who use screenreaders to browse the Web

    By the end of the book, you'll be equipped with enough knowledge to set out on your first projects as a professional web developer, or you can simply use the knowledge you've gained to create attractive, functional, usable and accessible sites for personal use.

    About the Author

    Ian Lloyd runs, a site dedicated to promoting web accessibility and providing tools for web developers. His personal site 'Blog Standard Stuff', ironically, has nothing to do with standards for blogs (it's a play on words), although there is an occasional standards-related gem to be found there.

    Ian works full-time for Nationwide Building Society where he tries his hardest to influence standards-based design ("to varying degrees!"). He is a member of the Web Standards Project, contributing to the Accessibility Task Force. Web standards and accessibility aside, he enjoys writing about his trips abroad and recently took a 'year out' from work and all things web (but then ended up writing more in his year off than he ever has). He finds most of his time being taken up by a demanding old lady (relax, it's only his old Volkswagen camper van).

    Ian recently wrote his first book for SitePoint entitled 'Build Your First Web Site the Right Way with HTML and CSS' (in which he teaches web standards-based design to the complete beginner).
