Since the last edition of this book appeared three years ago, there has been a major climate change with regard to web standards. Designers are no longer using (X)HTML as a design tool, but as a means of defining the meaning and structure of content. Cascading Style Sheets are no longer just something interesting to tinker with, but rather a reliable method for handling all matters of presentation, from fonts and colors to the layout of the entire page. In fact, following the standards is now a mandate of professional web design. In this update to the popular book, "Learning Web Design", author Jennifer Niederst Robbins 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 basic components of how the Internet works and what comprises web sites - and builds from there. After reading this book, you'll have a solid foundation in HTML, CSS, graphics, and design principles that you can immediately put to use in creating effective web pages. In the third edition, Jennifer has updated the book to cover CSS, rich media applications, web standards, and much more.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 popular software for graphics creation and editing, web-page and web-site creation, and audio- and video- integration. Unlike other beginner books, "Learning Web Design" leaves no holes in your education. It 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".

Here's why I recommend Learning Web Design to my beginner students:
1) The book is in color. Most (possibly all) of the HTML and CSS reference books my students buy are in black and white. For creative, non-technical folks, this can be a challenge--wading through page after page of black and white text can be mind-numbing. The design of the book uses color to indicate key pieces of code, etc, which is very helpful for beginners.
2) The book doesn't cover everything--and doesn't pretend to. It thoroughly discusses the basics of HTML, CSS, web graphics and the process of creating a web site and introduces some intermediate concepts, but really only covers what 90% of beginners need to know.
3) The writing tone is friendly (I like the Dummies Guides for the same reason), which is great for non-technical users.
4) The exercises that accompany each lesson are good, and are nice jumping off points for students.
5) The discussion of graphics is better than in most books I've seen--it seems that a lot of basic web design references drop the ball in this area, probably because they're trying to cover so much material in the HTML & CSS sections.
I absolutely love this book and I actually feel like I have accomplished a lot just by reading it. I understand a lot about XHTML and CSS and I am ready to take my learning further. I would recommend this book to anyone looking to explore web design, especially if you want to do it correctly! You will not learn any poor techniques in this reading.
Do not pay attention to some of the negative reviews. Obviously you will not be an expert web designer after completing this book. That is not the point. Maybe the words "Learning" and "beginner" mentioned in the title were not specific enough to lead some people to the understanding that this book doesn't feature every single bit of code in existence for a reason! However, it does show readers enough material to confidently build great looking webpages with minimal and simple markup!
Over all, this book is exactly what the title claims to be. A starting point and a great one at that!
