The Famous Primates web site is a part of the homework for the book HTML and CSS Web Standards Solutions: A Web Standardistas' Approach, published by friends of ED in January, 2009.
By embracing a web standards approach, the book covers the creation of web sites that not only look great in all modern browsers, but are also accessible to a wide variety of audiences across a range of platforms - from those browsing on everyday computers, to those accessing the Web on the latest, emerging mobile devices.
Even if you’re an absolute beginner in web design, the book will teach you how to build future-proof web pages the right way using easy to master tools which are, in most cases, free. Step by step the book covers how to construct well-structured XHTML web pages and how to apply layout and style to those web pages using CSS.
Although we've built this web site to serve as part of the homework for HTML and CSS Web Standards Solutions: A Web Standardistas' Approach we have endeavoured to create an accurate and informative web site about our famous primate friends and their achievements. Should you spot any inaccuracies about either our ape thespians or monkey pioneers, we'd love to hear from you with links to any authoritative sources you'd suggest we read.
The web is constantly changing. As a consequence, some of the links on the Famous Primates web site may be broken. If you do find broken links please let us know via the Web Standardistas' web site. Thanks!
