Designing With Web Standards

November 23, 2003 by debbie T | BooksWeb Development

“Designing With Web Standards” by Jeffrey Zeldman is one [computer] book that I couldn’t put down!

My favorite chapters are chapters 7, 8, & 10. I thought I knew a few things about standards, but this book opened a whole new world for me. It truly is one of the most thought-provoking web design books!

This book is not for someone who does not understand general html and css coding. I do recommend it to anyone who wants to expand on their html knowledge. You will learn to code Web pages that are trim, organized, and standards complient. And it is easier than you think! No need to read every word in every chapter, you can benefit from learning just what you need to know. Skip around. It works!

This is not a “reference” book per say….Yes, you could probably find all the info in the book on different Web sites somewhere online, but this book puts it into a nice neat package for you. You can unwrap it and enjoy it right away without searching for the answers. And Jeffrey explains it in plain English!

Jeffrey has a great writing style. If you are not familiar with him, please check out http://www.zeldman.com/ along with http://www.alistapart.com/ and http://www.webstandards.org/.

If you didn’t realize it by now, I really love this book. Very much.
