The book is completely up-to-date, covering support of the newest standards in all the latest browsers, including IE 7 and Firefox 2.

Description: This book covers the entire process of building a website. This process involves much more than just technical knowledge, and this book provides you with all the information you’ll need to understand the concepts behind designing and developing for the Web, as well as the best means to deliver professional, best-practice-based results.
There is far more to building a successful website than knowing a little Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). The process starts long before any coding takes place, and this book introduces you to the agile development process, explaining why this method makes so much sense for web projects and how best to implement it. Planning is vital, so you’ll also learn how to use techniques such as brainstorming, wireframes, mockups, and prototypes to get your project off to the best possible start and help ensure smooth progress as it develops.
An understanding of correct, semantic markup is essential to any web professional, so this book explains how XHTML should be used to structure content so that the markup adheres to current web standards. You’ll learn about the wide range of HTML elements available to you, and you’ll learn how and when to use them through building example web pages.
CSS-based design doesn 't need to be boring.

This full color book helps you to design web sites that not only work well across all browsers, are easy to maintain, and are highly accessible, but are also visually stunning.
