HTML & Web Design Tips & Techniques

I purchased this booklet in accordance with the raving stories I learn on Amazon from different clients, but if I obtained it i discovered a few significant matters. This booklet is a real and utter unhappiness for any intermediate or low-intermediate fashion designer.

The Good
- This publication is particularly entire and sturdy for precise novices because it covers the fundamentals of html, xhtml, personal home page, javascript, and picture editing.
- the one mildly helpful bits for the hobbyist net clothier are the Hypertext Preprocessor and Javascript chapters. .. yet you will find an analogous, or larger details at the fundamentals of those applied sciences published at no cost on the internet. you do not need to pay forty. 00+ greenbacks for this details.

The Bad
- This publication is intensely, tremendous superseded. many of the layout suggestions date again to the time while IE five. five and six have been the leading edge, and the examples are geared toward IE and Netscape Navigator clients! for this reason, the information & options are nearly dead now that IE 7 is average, IE eight at the horizon, and FFox three approximately to be published.
- This e-book is stuffed with statements similar to "PNG-8 and PNG-24 codecs have only in the near past got complete aid from the main used-browsers, Netscape Navigator 6 and net Explorer 5"(pg 290). that is how previous this book's information are.

DO purchase This publication. ..
- when you've got by no means outfitted an internet web page before
- if you would like the fundamentals to construct a private online page, a pastime web content, a static web site with under 10 pages and no performance except a mailto form.
- when you do not brain construction your web site for basically for IE users.
- for those who do not brain your web content taking a look just like the Geocities websites of again in 1999.

DO no longer purchase This Book.
- when you understand how to variety a paragraph utilizing CSS.
- when you have ever used an editor like Dreamweaver, or Adobe Golive, or perhaps FrontPage.
- if you'd like a domain with any type of interactive performance like wikis, blogs, dialogue forums, etc.
- while you are acutely aware that the area has moved on from Netscape Navigator 6.

In precis, i discovered this publication to be a massive pile of garbage. sooner or later, i might strongly suggest by no means paying for an online layout booklet that has been released greater than 1 or max 2 years sooner than your real date. Its 2008, do not buy whatever written ahead of 2006 with a purpose to study easy website design. you will turn out squandering precious time, as I did.

Example text

Opening an Existing Web Page Opening a Web page is a simple procedure and can be accomplished using the Open button list arrow on the Standard toolbar. You can open a Web page from your local hard drive, a network drive, or a Web server using an Uniform Resource Locator (URL). By default, Expression Web opens the last Web site you worked on every time you open the program. If you open a new page while another site is still open, the new page opens in a new Expression Web window. For Web pages you recently opened, you can quickly reopen them again by pointing to Recent Web Pages on the File menu, and then selecting the Web page you want to open.

At the bottom of the Editing window, the view buttons—Design, Split, and Code—appear for the currently page tab. Design view displays the page or site as it appears on screen, while Code view displays the HTML code that makes up the page or site. Split view shows you Code view at the top and Design view at the bottom. This view is helpful for learning how the code and design elements work. Switch Between Web Pages and Sites Web Pages or Web Sites. Click the tab with the name you want to display.

Using Visual Aids When you're working in Design or Split view, you can use Expression Web visual aids to make it easier to work with page elements, such as borders, margins and cell padding that are normally invisible. Sometimes it's hard to adjust elements without being able to see the edge. For example, the Margins and Padding command on the Visual Aids submenu makes it easier to view and change the margins and table cell padding on a page. You can show or hide all the visual aids at once or select each item individually.
