Defining Goals

In this redesign project, undertaken specifically for this book, we will retool the look, feel, structure, and basic functionality of zeldman.com, the author's personal site. Whether you capture the attention of thousands of readers or simply work to please yourself and a family member or two, a personal site is invaluable, especially when you're experimenting with CSS and other standards you might not be entirely ready to use in client or in-house development.

A personal site can also help you realize that you are not alone as a designer or practitioner. By creating such a site, you will join a thriving community of standards-oriented designers and developers who are surprisingly eager to help one another. Many times, when stymied by a troublesome problem of CSS, markup, or JavaScript, we've shared our bafflement at zeldman.com. Soon afterward, readers have sent email messages containing the seeds of a solution to the question posed on our site. Likewise, after reading other people's sites, we've often been moved to send them a suggestion about the issues that puzzled them.
