Designing with Web Standards

Cover of the book Designing with Web StandardsCame across the very useful looking book "Designing with Web Standards" by Jeffrey Zeldman. He argues that web pages can be designed using XHTML, CSS and ECMAScript and(standardized Javascript)and Document Object Model (DOM) which will look good in most browsers.

Zeldman avoids the graphical approach to web design, which treats web pages as if they were printed documents. He makes the case that standards will set us free, at least from having to worry about lots of work arounds to make every web page look identical in every web browser.
