This excellent guide details the full process of web site development and design. Packed with recommendations, it covers interface, site and page design, sifting and exploring specific aspects of each such as information architecture and navigation, site diagrams and consistency, and page layout. One particularly useful section that sets this guide apart from other web style manuals is the chapter dedicated to Typography, comparing print and web typography, with illustrative samples regarding white space, line height, alignment, case and emphasis considerations. The guide's Graphics chapter gives a clear understanding, supported by illustrations, of how the different color schemes and web-safe images work and display. Throughout the guide, issues of accessibility are consistently raised.
