Part I: Creating Web Pages > A Crash-Course in Web Design

Chapter 2. A Crash-Course in Web Design

Chapter 1, “Fundamentals of Web Publishing,” hinted at some of the issues we’ll discuss in this chapter, particularly style sheets and their role in HTML markup. There’s a definite tug-of-war in the world of Web design, where two different approaches—a visual approach and an organizational approach—have clashed with earlier HTML specifications. XHTML clarifies this considerably, separating organizational and visual design and making it a little easier to develop Web pages that look good while communicating effectively in a wide variety of applications. What that approach means to you, and why you might care, is what you’ll read about in this chapter.

This chapter discusses the following:

  • The fundamentals of organizing and presenting your page

  • What good sites look like and how to plan a site so that it works well

  • HTML trends and considerations, including accessibility, internationalization, and browser compatibility
