My book, Basics of Web Design: HTML5 & CSS3, takes an innovative approach to prepare students to design web pages that work today in addition to being ready to take advantage of new HTML5 coding techniques of the future. To meet this challenging goal, the book introduces both XHTML syntax and HTML5 syntax, presents coding web pages in HTML5 with backwards-compatible techniques that work in current browsers, and also provides practice with HTML5's new features that will only work in the latest versions of browsers.
Today's learners are busy multitaskers. The book is organized in two-page sections that quickly introduce the reader to new topics, provide examples, and offer hands-on exercises. This approach will get your students up-and-running quickly. The textbook companion website at webdevbasics.net has a page for each chapter with hyperlinks for websites listed in the book, information on emerging trends, additional examples, corrections, and review games. Instructor materials are available from the publisher's website.
