Web Design in a Nutshell: A Desktop Quick Reference (In a Nutshell (O’Reilly))

Categories: Ebook/Magazine, Web and Database
Written By: BitterRoad

258897_000cb452_medium.jpegIn 1998, Jennifer Niederst wrote the first edition of this very successful book after she found herself spending way too much time chasing down the solutions to HTML problems. From hexadecimal color specs to mouseover scripts, the answers are all out there, but finding the exact one you need can soak up a whole day. “I wrote Web Design in a Nutshell because it was the book I needed–one place to find quick answers to my questions.”

With all that’s changed in the meantime, an overhaul is welcome. This is the rare book for designers that is almost completely nonvisual. It doesn’t show what’s hip in navigational bars or what the coolest colors are. Rather, it gives readers the kind of know-how that can make a difference between someone who just whips up pretty pages with WYSIWYG applications like Dreamweaver and someone who can make those pages cross-platform, cross-browser, fast loading, and accessible to all.

The clear organization makes it easy to locate any specific topic. There are six sections. “The Web Environment” discusses the realities of browser compatibility, display-resolution problems, a useful bit of Unix, and tips for print designers looking to move into Web design. “Authoring” shows how to write accurate and up-to-date HTML, cascading style sheets, and Server Side Includes (like putting the current date and time on your homepage).

“Graphics” brings together all you need to know to make effective use of images (GIFs, JPEGS, PNGs, and animated GIFs). “Multimedia and Interactivity” helps with adding audio, video, or Flash to your site (including some succinct tips on optimization and publish settings). And “Advanced Technologies” covers JavaScript, DHTML, XML, XHTML, and WAP and WML. And there are six useful look-up tables in the appendix, which include HTML 4.0 tags, deprecated tags, attributes, and CSS support across browsers. Web Design in a Nutshell could easily have been titled The Web Designer’s Companion–it’s mighty handy to have around. –Angelynn Grant –This text refers to the Paperback edition.

From Library Journal
Niederst discusses everything a web designer needs, from basic principles and HTML to designing for multiple browsers, cascading style sheets, and XML. For a working web designer this book will be an invaluable quick reference, and it is written well enough that someone just starting out on the web could also use it. Highly recommended for all libraries.

Occasionally laser surgery will be used in order to deal with the problem.

Small and soft skin growths acquired on the skin
are called skin tags. The essence of natural mole removal is the use
of herb and folk remedies.

Whаt you composed madе a lot of sensе.
Howevеr, whаt аbout this? what if you
added a little contеnt? I аm not saying youг соntеnt is not solid, but
suppoѕe you added a title that makes people ԁеsіre moге?
I mean Untitled is a lіttle рlaіn. You might peek at Yahoo's home page and see how they create news titles to get viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to get readers excited about everything'ѵe writtеn.
In mу opinion, it wοuld bring yоur poѕtѕ a lіttlе liѵelieг.
