Bulletproof Tuesdays – A Read-Along

I just finished reading Dan Cederholm’s book Bulletproof Web Design. Bulletproof Web Design covers how to implement xhtml and css in a way that is accessible and functional for anyone visiting your site. Dan covers everything from text sizing to the final table-less layout in 9 interesting chapters. I thoroughly enjoyed the book, however I think it’s a book that requires some action in addition to just reading it. I want to make my site Bulletproof and I challenge you to do the same.

Bulletproof Web Design

I’m going to implement some of the suggestions in the book, but instead of just doing this behind the scenes I’m going to include you in the process. Starting next Tuesday for 9 weeks I will be covering a chapter a week. Each week I’ll give a brief overview of the chapter, implement the suggestions to this site, and answer questions for those of you who would like to follow along. This will be a safe place for you to ask questions and glean some information from your peers. If you don’t know anything about css or xhtml, you might learn something by just watching. I’m hoping to push some of you to clean up your code so your site will be accessible to the widest possible audience.

If you pick up your copy of Bulletproof Web Design now you should have enough time to get through chapter 1 when we start next week. If you already have the book this is your chance to really get your site together.

If you have no idea what any of this even means but you are interesting in creating your own web site, check back later this week. I’m in the process of putting together a beginning css and xhtml video tutorial series. The videos will guide you through understanding css to making your first css and xhtml site.

See you next Tuesday.
