Best-selling author, designer, and web standards evangelist Jeffrey Zeldman has revisited his classic, industry-shaking guidebook. Updated in collaboration with co-author Ethan Marcotte, this third edition covers improvements and challenges in the changing environment of standards-based design. Written in the same engaging and witty style, making even the most complex information easy to digest, Designing with Web Standards remains your essential guide to creating sites that load faster, reach more users, and cost less to design and maintain. Substantially revised--packed with new ideas How will HTML5, CSS3, and web fonts change your work? Learn new strategies for selling standards Change what "IE6 support" means "Occasionally (very occasionally) you come across an author who makes you think, 'This guy is smart! And he makes me feel smarter, because now I finally understand this concept.'" -- Steve Krug, author of Don't Make Me Think and Rocket Surgery Made Easy "A web designer without a copy of Designing with Web Standards is like a carpenter without a level. With this third edition, Zeldman continues to be the voice of clarity; explaining the complex in plain English for the rest of us." -- Dan Cederholm, author, Bulletproof Web Design and Handcrafted CSS "Jeffrey Zeldman sits somewhere between 'guru' and 'god' in this industry--and manages to fold wisdom and wit into a tale about WHAT web standards are, HOW standards-based coding works, and WHY we should care." -- Kelly Goto, author, Web ReDesign 2.0: Workflow that Works "Some books are meant to be read. Designing with Web Standards is even more: intended to be highlighted, dogeared, bookmarked, shared, passed around, and evangelized, it goes beyond reading to revolution." -- Liz Danzico, Chair, MFA Interaction Design, School of Visual Arts… (more)

One of the big 'standards-based development guru' books. First half deals with the problems, second deals with solutions using web standards-based approaches. Amusing and easy to read. Some review for those who already know about XHTML, CSS, etc, but still some good points worth learning ( )

A must have from the Godfather of web standards ( )

A must read for anyone making web pages.

So many web pages suck. If you want to know why ebay pages are so bad, or why yahoo sucks or why your PDA browser display looks so bad, or why web pages take so long to render or all kinds of other web boo boos, then read this book and find out how web pages should be written.

If you are writing a public funded website you will need this book even more, as it is part of your disability equality duty to write accessible web pages (in the UK at least). ( )

Excellent read. This book changed the way I built websites, much for the better. Builds a sound argument in favor of standards-based web development. ( )
