Book Description

This book demonstrates how to create sites in which any user, regardless of accessibility needs, can access every element, even if they have an outdated search engine, slow modem, small device, or other less-than-optimal conditions.

It contains everything you need to feel comfortable doing your own web development, including an abundance of real-life website examples that will inspire and motivate you. No need to spend time and money hiring an expensive graphic designer; this book will walk you through the fundamentals - and shortcuts - you need to do it all yourself, right now.

You will find clear principles for using HTML and CSS to design functional and accessible Web sites; best practices for each of the main elements of Web pages; seasoned advice for using style sheets that provide flexibility; illustrations of actual Web sites, from which designers can model their own pages; and more.
