Web Designer's Reference: An Integrated Approach to Web Design with XHTML and CSS Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Most web design books concentrate on a single technology or piece of software, leaving the designer to figure out how to put all the pieces together. This book is different. Web Designer's Reference provides a truly integrated approach to web design. Each of the dozen chapters covers a specific aspect of creating a web page, such as working with typography, adding images, creating navigation, and crafting CSS layouts. In each case, relevant XHTML elements are explored along with associated CSS, and visual design ideas are discussed. Several practical examples are provided, which you can use to further your understanding of each subject. This highly modular and integrated approach means that you learn about technologies in context, at the appropriate time and, upon working through each chapter, you craft a number of web page elements that you can use on countless sites in the future.

This book is ideal for those making their first moves into standards-based web design, experienced designers who want to learn about modern design techniques and move toward creating CSS layouts, graphic designers who want to discover how to lay out their designs, and veteran web designers who want a concise reference guide.

The book's advocacy of web standards, usability, and accessibility with a strong eye toward visual design means itis of use to technologists and designers alike, enabling everyone to build better websites. And for those moments when a particular tag or property value slips your mind, the book provides a comprehensive reference guide that includes important and relevant XHTML elements and attributes, XHTML entities, web colors, and CSS 2.1 properties and values.

Synopsis:

Providing an intriguing, comprehensive reference for Web design, using XH*L, CSS, and presentation-oriented JavaScript, this book is divided into tutorial sections, which include modular discussion and tutorial-based chapters, and the reference section, which features essential reference guides to XHTML and CSS.

Synopsis:

Web Designer's Reference provides an intriguing, comprehensive reference for Web design, using XHTML, CSS, and presentation-oriented JavaScript. This book is divided primarily in two sections: the Tutorial section, which includes Modular discussion and tutorial-based chapters; and the Reference section, which features essential reference guides to XHTML and CSS.
This book focuses on best-practice design, XHTML and CSS. The text is peppered with JavaScript discussion, but the book remains presentation-oriented to increase worth and illustrate the big picture. Emphasis will be placed upon current Web standards, which means using XHTML throughout. This unique book integrates technologies and follows through, teaching you how to design sites from the ground up. With plenty of practical examples, you may explore creative avenues with material you have learned. And the open-ended nature of the exercise enables you to integrate them into your own work, to save you time and money in the long run!
