Guide Review - Web Concept and Design by Crystal Waters
If you're looking for a book on HTML, you should look elsewhere. This book is not about the mechanics of Web site creation, but rather how to make your site look good and attractive to your customers. You will evaluate your goals for your site and then learn how to apply those goals to good Web design. The sections on color and fonts are extremely useful - especially to designers who don't have a print background. Finally, if you don't read the book, you should at least review the test drive. This excerpt from the book explains 29 things you should check before you make your page live on the Web.
