1. I wanted to re-write an older web site using CSS and modern HTML web stds, so where do I start?
2. What is my best approach?
3. Why would I want to do it that way?
So along the way it clarified for me how I should use divs for page structure, improve my navigation lists, specify font size in the best manner, and most of all how to use css in a structured way with minimal rewriting of styles etc for subtle changes in page requirements.
The book is probably most useful if you want to follow his emphasis and use XHTML Strict with CSS.
Very nicely written, very cleanly laid out. The associated website is useful, but the book stands alone as a very useful reference or starter for someone wanting to design their pages in an effective standards-based way.
The author also provides an excellent website that builds on the topics covered in the book[...]
- The fact is that for someone like me who last looked at HTML over a decade ago it was often confusing. The author is clearly on a campaign for purity and for using solely the latest standards, so he commonly spends time advising the reader that some older mode of coding is bad and should not be done. As a result when trying to integrate the lessons with existing code problems arise. The book appears to be quite what it claims to be, a "best practice guide" rather than a tutorial for those of us who need to start from zero.
Coverage on multi-media is very poor. All around confusing text with too much inference to existing html knowledge already.

This book serves as a great reference, but if you don't know what css and xhtml is leave this book alone. The book only has about 100 pages of material. Read morePublished on February 18, 2009 by Wendell Daltonn Huffines
