Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent introduction to standards based web design. Written in a very accessible manner Murphy and Persson walk you through creating well structured XHTML pages then show you how to style them using CSS. With a dedicated website to help you along you can't go wrong.

As a designer I have always left the programing of my client sites up to someone who knows how, thinking it was way beyond me. This book has shown me just how easy it actually is to programme them yourself and what's more I don't have to buy any expensive software get me started!

I reckon this will quickly become a university standard introduction to web design and the first port of call for any aspiring designer. Well done guys!

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Mr. R. Timson on 24 Sept. 2009
Format: Paperback
I really liked how this book emphasized the need for standards, semantic markup and separating content from presentation in the beginning chapters, it make sure you get the code right before dipping into CSS. I also liked how issues such as finding a good editor, using FTP and buying a domain name / hosting etc got mentions. A lot of beginners would not think of these essentials and most books do not give them a thought. One thing that a lot of books on this subject go into, that I appreciated this didn't, is IE hacks. I know they are a cruel necessity but there is nothing worse for a learner to hear at the end of their work, "however....IE, a rather popular browser doesn't play by the rules so you need to do this weird stuff as well". Things such as IE hacks can be learnt from online content and more in depth books that I would recommend you buy after reading this book.

Overall I think this will become a classic beginners book but even experienced folk will be able to benefit from it. The fact that the authors are both lecturers shows throughout as not only do they know the subject but more importantly they know how to teach it. This is something that is often missing from these sort of books. The homework sections are also great for recapping on the previous chapter and for getting the readers hands dirty. I can see a lot of colleges / universities using this book as one of their main texts for first year web students. I certainly wish this had been the first book I read when learning this stuff.

Created by two lecturers at the University of Ulster, this book offers everything one needs to know about the web and internet. From how and why the WWW was developed right up to step-by-step guides on how to create 'proper' XHTML DOCType pages! All details are explained along the way, so that every chapter - regardless of previous knowledge - is a learning curve. For example, the importance of a webpage having no spaces to creating and keeping CSS 'separately' from HTML coding.

This book will definitely keep you in good shape, allowing you to create a current "future proof" website using validation from W3C. Great use of illustrations, easy to read text and you can also create your first correct/proper website - even if you think you've done it before.

PS, it doesn't require any software that isn't already 'bundled' on your computer. Even if you don't know where Notepad [for instance] is the book easily explains it. Enjoy the new skills and put them to the test academically or for leisure use on your Mac or PC.

Format: Paperback
I found this book extremely helpful and well written. Each chapter was well laid out and easy to work through. There was great attention to detail, with easy to follow examples and the accompanying website, with it's reference pages was a very welcome addition! This alone surpassed other books I'd read on the subject. I have in the past read numerous books on HTML & CSS and found them overly technical and pretty confusing and found myself not getting anywhere. I've now designed my first two column website and am looking to progress.

This book is an ideal launching pad for web designers. It teaches the importance of adhering to web standards and making your web pages accessible to as wide an audience as possible. There is also a useful section at the end of the book, which gives valuable tips on how to take the next steps in your career as a designer. A highly recommended purchase!

Format: Paperback
With the amount of information on the internet these days, one would believe you could learn anything you wanted. Not quite.

In terms of wanting to know how the viewing public gains that information, the Web Standardistas makes it clear for novices and experts alike. For a novice, or a beginning student in web design, eat and sleep with this book. For all those experts out there, this book deserves a spot on your bookshelf in between Jerffery and Dan. A vast amount of knowledge, tips, clean approaches and element histories are wrapped up in the friendly atmosphere of the authors.

It is true that there may not be enough explanation on certain topics, but there are only so many tree's in the world. The book will inform every novice, and remind any expert that they may be doing some small things the wrong way.

Format: Paperback
This book combines many of the questions you may be searching for online into an understandable and easy to follow reference guide, combined with hands on approach to full coding of a webpage. However, it is not really for the experienced designer as it covers only the basics. Its a great starting point for a beginner, and whilst they code by hand everything I would also suggest it is very useful if using a tool like Dreamweaver in CODE which will help you to fully understand whats going on in the back ground. The html section which takes up about 7(edited from 8) chapters is actually over inflated a little, and could do with more CSS but whats there is very good and did teach me a few new things.

Starting out..buy it...experienced..would look for something else.
