This book bridges the gap between what colleges are teaching and what the Web design industry needs. It takes a holistic approach to Web design and includes everything from Internet fundamentals, information architecture, and web site planning to implementation using HTML and CSS, semantics, and accessibility. Web Design with Web Standards draws upon a portion of the WaSP (Web Standards Project) InterAct curriculum (hosted at http://interact.webstandards.org) and provides a complete learning resource. The book gives readers a solid grounding in Web design theory and practical techniques on implementation. It relates to the following courses from WaSP InterAct: Internet Fundamentals Writing for the Web Foundation HTML and CSS (Web Design 1, Web Design 2, and some of Findability) Accessibility Information Architecture 1
