Product Description

From the Back Cover

No matter how visually appealing or packed with content your Web site is, it isn’t succeeding if it’s not reaching the widest possible audience. If you get this guide, you can be assured it will! By deconstructing a series of real-world Web sites, author and Web designer extraordinaire Dan Cederholm outlines 10 strategies for creating standards-based designs that provide flexibility, readability, and user control—key components of every successful Web site. Each chapter starts out with an example of what Dan refers to as an “unbulletproof” concept—an existing site that employs a traditional approach and its associated pitfalls. Dan then deconstructs that approach, noting its downsides and then making the site over using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). By the end of each chapter, you’ll have replaced traditional, bloated, inaccessible page components with lean markup and CSS. The guide culminates with a chapter that pieces together all of the page components discussed in prior chapters into a single page template.

About the Author

Dan Cederholm is an award-winning Web designer as well as the founder of the design and development consulting firm SimpleBits.

Format: Paperback
This book is one of the best books I have read on CSS and building assessible website. The book describes how to create pages that load fast and scale correctly when the user chooses a larger font. Additionally, the author guides the reader on how to create a useful site even when the user disables the images and style sheets in their browser.

Even though this book is 2 years old, the processes and procedures that are discussed throughout this book are still today's standards.

Well written and easy to follow steps.

For those facing the annoyance of writing HTML on a regular basis, CSS has been full promise but has failed to deliver for years because many browsers will not interpret it consistently. This book gives you those hacks needed to position items on the page with CSS for all browsers. Now you can write just one set of code that will also work for PDAs and 56K dial-ups. The simplified code will make dynamic pages a snap. Say good-bye and good-riddance to spacer.gif and embedded tables.

Book is good but the delivery time was horrible- it took a month to get here when it says that it will be between 7-14 days. I was really disappointed with the amount of delivery time.

Book was good for introduction to CSS and some basic pitfalls to avoid, but lacked any examples or mention of how to utilize in ASP. No mention of working with pesky web controls that never seem to mate well with labels.
