Learning Web Design, 4e

back to home page


With so much more to say about HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript, a few chapters had to be squeezed out of this edition. These chapters from the Third Edition of Learning Web Design still have a lot of good information in them, so I'm making them available for download.

  • The Site Development Process: download PDF
    Outlines the general steps in the complete web development process, from conceptualization and research to ongoing maintenance.
  • Getting Your Pages on the Web: download PDF
    Explains registering a domain name, finding a hosting service, and how to transfer files to the server (FTP).

The following chapters are from the Second Edition published in 2003. Some of the information (particularly references to individual sites and statistics) are dated, but much of it is still useful.
