How This Book Is Organized

Part I: Getting Started

Part I lays a foundation for everything that follows in the book. I start off with some important general information about the web design environment, including the various roles you might play, the technologies you might learn, and tools that are available to you. You’ll get your feet wet right away with HTML and CSS and learn how the Web and web pages generally work. I’ll also introduce you to some Big Concepts that get you thinking the way modern web designers think about their craft.

Part II: HTML for Structure

The chapters in Part II cover the nitty-gritty of every element and attribute available to give content semantic structure, including the new elements introduced in HTML5. We’ll cover the markup for text, links, images, tables, and forms. Part II closes out with an in-depth discussion of HTML5 and how it differs from previous standards.

Part III: CSS for Presentation

In the course of Part III, you’ll go from learning the basics of using Cascading Style Sheets for changing the presentation of text to creating multicolumn layouts and even adding time-based animation and interactivity to the page. It also addresses common CSS techniques, including how to create a page using Responsive Web Design.

Part IV: JavaScript for Behaviors

Mat Marquis starts Part IV out with a rundown of JavaScript syntax so you can tell a variable from a function. You’ll also get to know some ways that JavaScript is used, including DOM Scripting, and existing JavaScript tools, such as polyfills and libraries, that let you put JavaScript to use quickly even if you aren’t quite ready to write your own code from scratch.

Part V: Creating Web Graphics

Part V introduces the various file formats that are appropriate for the Web and describes how to optimize them to make their file size as small as possible.
