Product Description

Our popular reference, Web Design in a Nutshell, has been completely rewritten and expanded to reflect the state of the art in web standards. In addition to being an authoritative reference for (X)HTML and Cascading Style Sheets, this book also provides an overview of the unique requirements of designing for the Web and gets to the nitty gritty of JavaScript and DOM Scripting, web graphics optimization, and multimedia production. It is an indispensable tool for web designers and developers of all levels.

I bought the 2nd edition of this book when it was published and found it extremely useful. The 3rd edition is due soon - wait for it and don't be tempted to buy the old edition (things have changed in the world of HTML).

By Tami Brady TOP 500 REVIEWER on 7 Oct. 2007
Format: Paperback
Web Design in a Nutshell is not merely an updated edition of the previous book (2001) of the same title. Extremely quick substantial changes in the web design systems over these past few years simply wouldn't allow for such an update. Instead, the author has composed this book from the ground up to address the issues and concerns of web designers in 2006. This reference covers all the basics of web design how tos from basics like choosing text elements and creating links through more challenging topics such as optimization of graphics and using flash on web pages. However, the portion of the book that I found most useful was the sections on designing sites for a variety of different browsers and increasing accessibility on your website. Together, these aspects create an easy to understand guide for those individuals wanting an introduction to web design or as very solid reference material for current web designers.

I bought the previous edition of this book and found it invaluable as a reference to things I did not know and to explain things I did not understand. The new updated version is the same.
It probably would not teach a total beginner but once you have the very basics of html and css then this will provide much of the information you need to improve and it explains it better than a lot of detailed tutorial books.
I have been updating my skills and have been going through the first 3 sections - the web environment; the structure, XHTML; and the display, CSS. I find it covers a huge amount of ground - there does not seem to be anything not mentioned. It covers topics such as the declarations in the html header, search engine optimisation, deprecated attributes and what replaces them, the css box model etc. But it is still concise and clear. Each chapter lists resources where you can find more information if required.
I have not looked at the sections on Javascript, images, Flash etc in this book but the previous book did help me with different formats in use at that time.
