Web standards are essential to good design, yet most titles covering web design don't focus nearly enough on standardization options and techniques. Learn how to create standards-compliant web sites using Web Standards Design Guide, which explains XML, CSS, xForms and much more. Designers learn when and how to use them, how to convert existing code, and how to fine tune workflow and processes to ensure both compliance and better service efficiency.

It used to be that designing a web page was so simple. You learned a bit of HTML and started coding. You looked at what you had and altered it to suit. Then Front Page came along and you didn't even have to learn HTML.

Alas, no more. ==Why standards? Because you want to get the most interaction possible between your web site and things the might be visiting it. Things? Yes, things. You normally think of a browser visiting your site to display the page, but search engines use robots to visit as well, and you want your site to show up when when Google or Yahoo come to call.

The particular standards covered in this book include:

XHTML, the logical extension to HTML,

CSS, which has been around a while, but is largely ignored,

Accessibility, where you need to consider that your visitor might not have a mouse or a screen,

XForms, the upcoming replacement for HTML forms (note upcoming, don't use them yet),

XLink, the same thing to replace hyperlinks, eventually.

This book is kind of a heads-up on what web development is going to become. It's the information someone wanting to stay up to date or just starting to learn needs to know.

Blablabla. What a waste of words and what few relevant information for webdesigners! When I read the chapter about accessibility I thought: the author should have studied accessible writing first.

It was so useless I left it in the train. By far the worst webrelated book I ever read.
