Foundations Of Web Design: Introduction To HTML & CSS

If you are a beginner who needs a solid grounding in the best practices for creating websites, this book is for you.   Written by innovative curriculum developer and university web instructor Thomas Michaud, this book provides an accessible yet comprehensive look at web design and front-end coding, covering HTML, CSS, design principles and more. You’ll learn HTML semantics, structure, and validation, and how to separate content from design using CSS (levels 1, 2, and 3). Online videos and code examples let you follow along and practice with the code.   Some of the other things you’ll learn about include: • text elements, links, objects, and tables • using the box model for background images, padding, borders, and margins • fixed vs. liquid page layout • choosing between different navigation models • creating and styling forms • interactive design with JavaScript and jQuery   Foundations of Web Design is an indispensable resource to quickly take you from sketching to coding.

The book is well written and was useful for my college course. One issue I had was that not all the download material from the authors website was made available. The first five chapters were online but all the remaining were missing. I tried to use the online form at the website twice in a ten week period to contact the author and never got a response.

I needed it for school so I had to buy it but I opened it once and since then have found way better refrences off the internet. its not a bad book just expensive for not that much info.

Required book for Intro to Web Design class. Very easy to read and has loads of great tips and website recommendations for building your first site directly from code.
