This essential guide for Web site designers provides practical, concise advice on creating well-designed and effective Web sites and pages. Focusing on the interface and graphic design principles that underlie the best Web site design, this book offers invaluable help on a full range of issues, from planning and organising goals to design strategies for a site to the elements of individual page design. This second edition includes guidelines on designing for accessibility, strategies for maintaining a Web site, details on using style sheets, and much more. This book grew out of the widely used and highly praised Web site on site design created by the Center for Advanced Instructional Media at Yale University (info.med.yale.edu/caim/manual/). At this site, readers will continue to find updated colour illustrations and examples to complement and demonstrate points made in the book, as well as useful and current online references.

At last, a book on the design of Web sites with the viewer in mind... It intelligently and succinctly discusses all those topics so badly neglected by most Web sites." Donald A. Norman, author of The Design of Everyday Things and The Invisible Computer "Helpful and forward-looking advice." Stephen W. Plain, Web Development Editor, Amazon.com. A top-10 choice for 1999 "This is one of the best design books that I've seen, catering specifically to information-oriented sites... The Web would be an easier world to navigate if all Web designers read this book." Deborah Lynne Wiley, Online "A style guide for the interface with real long-run value, showing us deep principles of design rather than simply fashion and technology." Edward R. Tufte "Web Style Guide is sort of an 'Elements of Style for Webmasters'... Authoritative factoids are sprinkled throughout, and ground the book in logic while elevating it above some of the brightly coloured hyperactive Web design manuals out there." J. D. Biersdorfer, New York Times Circuits Section
