HTML Utopia: Designing Without Tables Using CSS (Build Your Own)

Buy
As I wrote this book, I had in mind Web designers with at least a little experience
building sites, who are curious about how CSS can help them become more effective
designers. It is, then, aimed at a beginner to intermediate designer. I shall
assume a strong grasp of HTML, but that's about it.

We can look at Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) from a number of contextual perspectives.
I prefer to view them as a correction to a fundamental mistake that
was made at the beginning of Web Time, back in the old days of the early 1990s,
when Tim Berners-Lee and the first pioneering Web builders first envisioned the
beginnings of the Web.

What was that mistake?

To meet the requirements of the Web’s initially limited purpose, it was not necessary
to separate content from presentation. Even though some thought it was
a good idea, there was no really compelling, practical reason to recognize this
distinction. After all, the Web’s early intent was simply to allow a small number
of nuclear physicists using disparate systems at various locations to share vital
experimental data.

Berners-Lee didn’t envision the massively popular, wildly commercialized, extensively
morphed Web that emerged from his core ideas in the early 1990s—I doubt
that anyone could have.

So, the mistake was a lack of foresight, rather than an oversight. But it was a
mistake nonetheless.
