Chapter Sixteen. A CSS Redesign

In this chapter, we'll take much of what we've learned about markup, CSS, accessibility, and the DOM and put it to work in a site redesign that separates structure from presentation. We'll define and meet goals that serve our site's users and might benefit yours as well. For good measure, once we're pleased with the site's look and feel, we'll create a user-selectable alternative layout powered by CSS and the DOM.

Although the visual design of the site shown in this chapter is nothing special, the construction methods are important, for they are the techniques that we'll use to create many sites soon, and nearly all sites eventually. Previous chapters have discussed bits and pieces of the standards puzzle or told how to create hybrid sites that combine classic and modern methods. This chapter will bring you closer to the typical design practices of tomorrow's web.
