View larger How This Book Is Organized Part I: Getting Started Part I lays a foundation for everything that follows in the book. I start off with some important general information about the web design environment, including the various roles you might play, the technologies you might learn, and tools that are available to you. Youâll get your feet wet right away with HTML and CSS and learn how the Web and web pages generally work. Iâll also introduce you to some Big Concepts that get you thinking the way modern web designers think about their craft. Part II: HTML for Structure The chapters in Part II cover the nitty-gritty of every element and attribute available to give content semantic structure, including the new elements introduced in HTML5. Weâll cover the markup for text, links, images, tables, and forms. Part II closes out with an in-depth discussion of HTML5 and how it differs from previous standards. Part III: CSS for Presentation In the course of Part III, youâll go from learning the basics of using Cascading Style Sheets for changing the presentation of text to creating multicolumn layouts and even adding time-based animation and interactivity to the page. It also addresses common CSS techniques, including how to create a page using Responsive Web Design.
