HTML und CSS bilden seit mehr als zehn Jahren das Herzstuck des Webdesigns, aber trotz oder gerade wegen ihres stolzen Alters beinhalten diese Technologien auch einige uberholungsbedurftige Features. Autor Ben Henick nimmt in diesem Buch die beiden grundlegenden Webtechnologien unter die Lupe und stellt einen nutzlichen Katalog an Webdesign-Best Practices zusammen. Er richtet sich an Webdesigner und -autoren, die grundsatzlich mit CSS und HTML vertraut sind und die nun ihren Arbeitsstil und ihren Code verbessern wollen. Sauberer Code, bessere Wartbarkeit Den Einstieg bildet ein knapper Uberblick uber die wichtigsten Aspekte von HTML und CSS, denen Sie als Webdesigner immer wieder begegnen. Beantwortet werden Fragen wie: HTML 4.01, XHTML oder HTML 5 - welche HTML-Version ist die richtige fur mein Webprojekt? Wie bekomme ich eine saubere Trennung von Inhalt und Prasentation in der Praxis hin? Gibt es Kniffe, die meinen Code sauberer und besser wartbar machen? HTML- und CSS-Best Practices Anhand klassischer Themen des Webdesigns wird Ihnen vermittelt, wie Sie beispielsweise Farben und Schriften, Bilder und Formulare so einsetzen, dass moglichst wenig Reibungsverluste im Hinblick auf verschiedene Browser und Ausgabegerate entstehen. Webstandards, Usability und Barrierefreiheit Viele Webdesigner kennen die Empfehlungen des W3C zu den Webstandards, schrecken aber vor ihrer Umsetzung zuruck. Ben Henick ist ein Verfechter des pragmatischen Mittelwegs und zeigt, wie Sie dem Geist der Webstandards gerecht werden, ohne sich in der buchstabengetreuen Umsetzung zu verheddern. Mit vertretbarem Aufwand konnen Sie so die Usability und die Zuganglichkeit Ihrer Websites deutlich verbessern.
