Author Biography: Ian Lloyd

Ian Lloyd runs, a site dedicated to promoting web accessibility and providing tools for web developers. His personal site 'Blog Standard Stuff', ironically, has nothing to do with standards for blogs (it's a play on words), although there is an occasional standards-related gem to be found there.

Ian works full-time for Nationwide Building Society where he tries his hardest to influence standards-based design ("to varying degrees!"). He is a member of the Web Standards Project, contributing to the Accessibility Task Force. Web standards and accessibility aside, he enjoys writing about his trips abroad and recently took a 'year out' from work and all things web (but then ended up writing more in his year off than he ever has). He finds most of his time being taken up by a demanding old lady (relax, it's only his old Volkswagen camper van).

Ian recently wrote his first book for SitePoint entitled 'Build Your First Web Site the Right Way with HTML and CSS' (in which he teaches web standards-based design to the complete beginner).

Book Synopsis

Developers follow along with the author, step-by-step, in building a fully functional Web site with this guide that does not assume previous knowledge of HTML, CSS or Web Development techniques. Readers will learn to apply Web Standards to build Web sites that are usable, fast-loading, cross-browser compatible and accessible to disabled users.
