Web standards are the standard technology specifications enforced by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) to make sure that web designers and browser manufacturers are using the same technology syntax. It is important that these implementations are the same throughout the Web, otherwise it becomes a messy proprietary place, and lacks consistency. These standards also allow content to be more compatible with multiple different viewing devices, such as screen readers for people with vision impairments, cell phones, PDFs, etc. HTML, XML, and CSS are all such technologies. This book is your essential guide to understanding the advantages you can bring to your web pages by implementing web standards and precisely how to apply them. Web standards such as XHTML and CSS are now fairly well-known technologies, and they will likely be familiar to you, the web designer-indeed, they are all around you on the Web. However, within web standards still lies a challenge-while the browser's support for web standards is steadily increasing, many web developers and designers have yet to discover the real benefits of web standards and respect the need to adhere to them.The real art is in truly understanding the benefits and implementing the standards efficiently.As a simple example of its power, you can use CSS to lay out your pages instead of nesting tables-this can make file sizes smaller, allowing pages to load faster, ultimately increasing accessibility for all browsers, devices, and web users. Use XHTML elements correctly so that your markup is compact and more easily understood. Use CSS to style different elements of a web page. Lay out pages easily and effectively. Compare multiple methods of achieving the same results to make better design choices. Learn about advanced web design techniques and their important caveats. Web Standards Solutions is broken down into 16 short chapters, each covering the theory and practice of different web standards concept and showing multiple solutions to given problems for easy learning. You'll learn about multi-column layouts, using image replacement techniques to your best advantage, making the best use of tables and lists, and many more.This highly modular approach allows you to rapidly digest, understand, and utilize the essentials of web standards.

Derzeit tritt ein Problem beim Filtern der Rezensionen auf. Bitte versuchen Sie es später noch einmal.
Dan Cederholm, geht in diesem Buch in die Tiefen von CSS anhand der Techniken, die er als "Schmankerl" auch auf seiner Site zeigt.
Dabei schafft er immer erst den entsprechenden Hintergrund, um dann auf dieser Grundlage oder Fundament aufzubauen. Denjenigen, die "den" Zeldman gelesen haben und sich bereits mit den beiden Standardwerken von Eric Meyer zum Thema CSS auseinandergesetzt haben, kann ich dieses Buch als Ergänzung und für neue Sichtweisen sehr empfehlen.

This book takes a very clear approach to laying out many paths to a single, or similiar, solutions. I think a big problem with all of us "non gurus" who are trying to get into CSS is knowing whether a tag or style is compatible with the "popular browsers" and if we are going to hand off the project to our clients full of holes and subsequently full of complaints. You can trust Dan as a professional who lays down a number of approaches that can be used, none of which are totally obselete and are going to leave you with an unhappy client.
Another great element of this book is the value it adds to your work. When you put these skills to work on your sites, your not only creating visually great work, but your also making your work compatible on all levels (hand helds, multiple browsers, screen readers, non CSS compatible browsers)and the book even shows why using specific techniques will optimize your code for search engines (and anyone worth thier weight in gold knows how important search engine optimization is for clients).
There are alot of great reasons to fork over your money on this book. As I believe I heard someone mention before, if you have basic CSS knowledge and this book you will be ready to rock. Just dont pick it up expecting to learn CSS from the ground up. For those who have that basic working knowledge, this is the next step in your CSS revolution!
Web Standards are a bit iffy as standards to one person can be different to another. In addition, with the different browsers and their incompatibilities its a tough subject to handle. This book does a great job at showing you good practices for you to write cleaner code and explaining the reasoning behind it.
The examples shown are core to every website from clean lists used for navigation to techniques on text replacement. Also explanations of when and what to use tables for as well as avoiding the over excess usage of just throwing in "<divs>" all over the place.
Much of the skills and techniques can be found on the web but to have all in one book makes it a ease for reference and to go back to. In addition, the explanations are clear and easy to follow. If you have a bit of knowledge of HTML and CSS already, this will be a good book to further advance those skills in a proper, best practices way.
This is a perfect book for a web-designer that has been toying with css for a while and is ready to make the jump to full-fleged web standards.
Like Zeldman's "Designing w/ Web Standards", this book reads more like a conversation than a tech book. It explains things easily and not in a condescending way.
I particularly liked the way this book gives you real-world explanations of taking what you are *used* to doing and showing you how to better do it with css. It's very clear and makes the transition much easier.
My only complaint from this book was that CSS Positioning was not covered very lightly. It would have been nice to have expanded on this area bit more.
I can't recommend this book enough.
Each chapter starts with a goal and then he presents different approaches to achieve that goal...weighing the pros/cons for each method.
Dan conveys the information in a clear, succinct and "matter of fact" style. I actually took this book with me on the subway one day and was so engrossed that I missed my stop! :)
