Review

I have been a fan of Rachel Andrew's books for a number of years now. Her books are always well thought out and presented in such a way that even the newest users can gain some knowledge from her books and at the same time not insult the intelligence of the more experienced users.

This book is no different. Rachel has done a remarkable job in explaining exactly what a standards compliant website is and takes you through the steps of building one using the new Dreamweaver 8 from Macromedia.

Readers of this book will find the chapters on CSS very valuable. Not only are the basics of CSS covered but also the new CSS tools within Dreamweaver 8. The new Dreamweaver CSS tools are a huge step for Dreamweaver and this book is the ideal guide to get you started on your way to standards compliant websites using Dreamweaver.

Summary

All the code in the book is also downloadable from sitepoint's website. For anyone new to CSS or concerned with cross browser compatibilty I highly recommend this book be close to your desk. The information is well laid out and easy to find if using just as a reference guide.
