A companion to Jeffrey Zeldman's Designing with Web Standards, this textbook is more tactical and instructional.
Developing with Web Standards is a lucid and comprehensive guide to building efficient websites now and in the future. Allsopp touches on all the important topics with the discerning eye of a master practitioner.
This textbook includes case studies that reveal real world practices. It approaches standards from a more tactical and instructional point of view. Today's web designers and developers need to update their skills and knowledge and get away from out-of-date table and font-based approaches.
In Developing with Web Standards, they will learn current best practices in standards-based development. The topics covered in this textbook are based on the author's extensive experience from the professional development trenches and will give readers a thorough grounding in contemporary web development technologies and techniques with a focus on relevant emerging aspects of HTML, CSS, and other web standards which are becoming increasingly vital for professional web developers.
