by Michael van Diermen,
Written on February 3, 2012
Well written with fresh up to date content on web site standards for development. Helped me quickly understand important design techniques and aspects for web design, which is important for development of professional websites for mass viewers. Useful for study as well as quick reference to subjects. Contains easy to read theory and code examples, with lots of things I did not know.
