Layout Principles for the Web

We often bandy about the word layout and simply mean the number of columns we want on a page. People learning CSS frequently approach layout that way, asking, “How do I create a three-column layout?” or “How do I create a layout with a header and a footer?” These are good questions, and important ones, but before even getting to the CSS, we should carefully study the principles behind why we might choose a given layout.

Note

Readers familiar with other forms of graphic arts, such as print and package design, will quickly see that there are unique challenges when creating onscreen layouts. Newcomers to the study of Web design rapidly learn that laying out a page, while sharing some common techniques with print, is decidedly different than print.
