Tips from the master

By Simon Willison

I stumbled across a real gem today: Tips for writers and designers from HTML wizard David Siegel. David is driving forward the boundaries of web design and has a treasure trove of tips for aspiring web developers. Did you know you could use single pixel gifs to achieve perfect control over your layouts?

The companion site for David’s book Creating Killer Web Sites has yet more cutting edge advice. The invisible table trick is particularly impressive – I had only ever thought of tables as boring tools for presenting tabular data, but David turns web design on its head and shows how they can be used to lay out pages in ways I’d never even imagined!

David really shows how to break away from the limitations of HTML as a structural markup language. The web will never be the same again!
