The world is finally discovering that there are choices for web browsers other than Microsoft Internet Explorer. Netscape never recovered from the onslaught of Microsoft's marketing muscle and the v4.x fiasco, but with the release of Netscape v6.0 in 2000, the browser makers finally started to live up to their commitments to strive toward supporting the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) standards. Since then, Mozilla and its more popular offspring Firefox have made significant inroads in Microsoft's market share. The upshot is that web designers can no longer blythely write off non-IE browsers.

This book shows you how to design your web pages to conform to the latest HTML/XHTML standards. The book includes complete coverage of implimenting CSS v2.0 as well as the differences between the major browsers. If you design web pages on a professional basis, you need a book like this to show you how to make your site accessible to the broadest possible audience.
