So often I hear from users who expect their graphics software to create perfect Web pages. While it may have the ability to export the code for a Web page, the quality of that code is usually unoptimized. It is much better to use the graphics software to make a great graphic and their use software made for creating Web pages to create the page.
Even if you are using a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) program, every designer should know the basics of HTML and CSS. CSS is a cascading style sheet and it gives your page formatting. Today I wanted to tell you about a book that gives you some wonderful CSS recipes for making your pages look great. The Book of CSS3: A Developer’s Guide to the Future of Web Design will not only give you the basics of using CSS, but also some amazing effects you can easily create. The author provides five reasons for using CSS: device-responsive pages, eye candy, a better reading experience, easier to maintain and cleaner code. Even if you aren’t going to be designing Web pages on a regular basis, you really should have a basic understanding of CSS. This book will give you that understanding and more!
