"I do like this book. I liked the first edition, and I liked the author's other books. They are models of what textbooks should be: clear, concise, nice to look at, useful and correct. ... If you know someone who wants to get started with designing websites and wants to progress quickly and reasonable far, this title is definitely for them. Get people who design bad websites to read it to, we can hope." - Lindsay Marshall, news@UK, December 2003
Here, author Jennifer Niederst shares the knowledge she's gained from years of web design experience, both as a designer and a teacher. This book starts from the beginning - defining the Internet, the Web, browsers, and URLs - so you don't need to have any previous knowledge about how the Web works. After reading this book, you'll have a solid foundation in HTML, graphics, and design principles that you can immediately put to use in creating effective Web pages. In this second edition, Jennifer has updated the book to cover style sheets and reflect current Web standards. She has also added exercises that help you to learn various techniques and short quizzes that make sure you're up to speed with key concepts. The companion CD-ROM contains material for all the exercises in the book, as well as trial versions of Fireworks MX, and HomeSite 5; Adobe Photoshop 7, ImageReady 7, and BBEdit 7. The book: covers the nuts and bolts of basic HTML and style sheets, with detailed examples of formatting text, adding graphic elements, making links, creating tables and frames, and using colour on the Web.Explains whether to use GIFs or JPEGs for different types of images, and includes important tips on optimizing graphics for Web delivery.It provides dozens of Web design do and don'ts, to help you make good Web design decisions and avoid common beginner traps and contains hands-on exercises throughout the book that allow you to try out new techniques along the way. "Learning Web Design" should gives you everything you need to create basic Web sites and will prepare you for more advanced Web work. If you are interested in Web design, this book is the place to start. After finishing it, you'll be ready for the author's bestselling companion reference, "Web Design in a Nutshell".

Derzeit tritt ein Problem beim Filtern der Rezensionen auf. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.
The book starts with the very basics (How the web works, What you need) and covers the design process, html & css (formatting text, links, tables, frames, color), graphics, basic and advanced techniques and includes loads of good advice and useful hints. It introduces you to the more popular web authoring and graphics creation tools (demo versions included on CD-ROM).
The big advantage of this book is that a complex process is broken down into bite-size bits but you still learn how it all works together and get in-depth information. Not the cheapest book available but worth every cent!!!

Originally a graphic designer, in 1993 Niederst became one of the very first web designers when she worked on the world's first commercial website (O'Reilly & Associates' Global Network Navigator, which is no longer in publication but you can see samples of it on Niederst's own website if you want; write me for the URL). Since then she's been one of the best-known web designers around and she's written other books on the topic -- notably _Web Design in a Nutshell_, which I highly recommend you get as a followup to this one (but wait for the new second edition, due out in October 2001). Since Al Gore didn't even _invent_ the Internet until 1993, that makes Niederst the nearest thing there is to an "old-timer" in what is, after all, a pretty new profession.
Niederst has said in interviews that this book is the one she wished she'd had to give her web-design students. It won't take you long to see why; it's painstakingly thorough and detailed, just the ticket for somebody who has never written a speck of HTML code before and is a little fuzzy on just what this "Internet" thing is.
Then, too, it's also a handy rough-and-ready guide to the sorts of application software you might want to acquire if you're getting seriously into web design. Niederst not only introduces the major players among authoring tools and graphics packages, but steps through her examples more than once to show you how they work in, e.g., Dreamweaver and GoLive.
The style is breezy and chatty but with no loss of accuracy. You'll find out why Niederst thinks "web design is cool" and you'll learn some of "Jen's pet peeves" (e.g. spinning-globe graphics and rainbow bars), but you'll also get a thorough and accessible introduction to the nuts and bolts of web design.
If you're just getting started on the creation of web pages, this is the book to use first. As I noted above, you'll probably also want to get Niederst's _Nutshell_ book as a sequel. After that, you'll be well qualified to decide what else you need.
