Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

These hands-on exercises, complete with insider tips and detailed color illustrations, teach you the latest techniques for designing Web sites with CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). CSS gives you control over the appearance of your Web sites by separating the visual presentation from the content. It lets you easily make minor changes to a site or perform a complete overhaul of the design. In CSS Web Site Design Hands-On Training, you’ll start with a review of CSS essentials, learn to build effective navigation and page layouts, and then move on to work with typography, colors, backgrounds, and white space. The included CD-ROM is loaded with classroom-proven exercises and QuickTime training videos, and real-world projects take you through the Web page creation process, one step at a time. Over 60 Step-by-Step Tutorials

•  Learning essentials of selectors, inheritance, and the cascade

•  Creating CSS navigation

•  Laying out pages with CSS
