Chapter 21. Layout


Designers are still discovering the capabilities and limitations of layout with Cascading Style Sheets. Some designers who were initially captivated by the "gee-whiz" typographic abilities of CSS neglected its many layout strengths. In the rush to experiment with the dynamic aspects of CSS, many designers overlooked some of the nuts-and-bolts problems that CSS solves: It facilitates solid, compelling page layout on the Web without having to resort to tables.

In this chapter, you will learn about the following:

  • Structuring your HTML code for more effective design

  • Setting up a multicolumn layout grid

  • Best practices for applying styles to headers, headers, navigation, links, and content

  • Creating attractive and dynamic tables and forms

  • Styling frames for better visual integration
