Making my markup sleeker than Lisa Kudrow rolled in yoghurt,
This review is from: Web Standards Solutions: The Markup and Style Handbook (Paperback)I have to say it's excellent. A colleague read a chapter and pronounced it "the best and most lucid explanation I've ever seen of when to use <b> and when to use <strong>" and I agree; in the next few weeks I shall be putting into practice loads of his tips. I've already fancy-Dandified my header styles, removed presentational <br /> tags, and made them sleeker than Lisa Kudrow rolled in yoghurt. I will be marking up more semantically from now on. I understand the benefits and need; I always wanted to - just didn't know how to do all that CSS wizardry.
His tip on using the same css and specifying whether it's a 2 or 3 column page via an id on the body tag is likely to lead to a 40 foot statue of him being erected in the centre of several metropolises. I have to carry the book in a briefcase to protect myself from attractive women trying to seduce me because of it.
Hyperbole aside; my boss has already ordered a few copies for the team, as the book is written with a simple, sensible style. is lucid and doesn't assume that you are a CSS guru, yet doesn't talk down.
