This review is from: HTML and CSS Web Standards Solutions: A Web Standardistas' Approach (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!

Thanks so much for your review Adrian. I'm one of the authors and I'm delighted that you found the book so useful. It's great that you're finding the book's supporting web site helpful. We felt it important to include lots of reference examples that are covered in the book online, allowing the use of 'View Source' to see how pages (and different examples) are built. We also felt it important to maintain the site (on a daily basis) as we move forward, web design is such a rapidly changing topic and we hope the book's supporting web site - easily found with a search for 'web standardistas' - will prove useful to the web design community.
Thanks again for your positive comments, we appreciate them!
