From the Publisher
Want to design distinctive, cohesive web sites that "work"? This updated bestseller teaches you how to blend aesthetics and mechanics for web sites and intranets that are easy to navigate and appealing to your users, scalable and simple to maintain. Most books on web development concentrate on either the graphics or the technical issues of a site. This book focuses on the framework that holds the two together.
