Summary[ edit ] Written by Jeffrey Zeldman , a leading proponent of standards-compliant web design, Designing with Web Standards guides the reader on how to better utilize web standards pragmatically to create accessible, user-friendly web sites.

Designing with Web Standards reiterates many of the arguments previously advanced by the Web Standards Project to highlight the benefits of standards-compliant web design. It has received generally positive feedback, with a four out of five-star rating on Amazon. Some critics have said that the book is aimed more at web design novices and mentions a few out-of-date browsers, and is devoid of a lot of detail.

This section of the book addressed marketers and site owners as well as web developers and designers. The second section of the book was a how-to for designers and developers.

How-to books were common in the web industry, although almost none at the time taught web standards. What made the first edition of Designing with Web Standards unique was its focus on making the case for forwarding compatibility, accessibility, and SEO to all who own, manage or use web sites, not just developers.

Web Standards[ edit ] Web standards simply mean web layout rules which are very basics and important for every web developer. Tutorials Bites Translations[ edit ] Designing with Web Standards has been translated into 15 different languages, including for the last edition Italian, Chinese, Hungarian, Polish and Portuguese.
