Excerpts from the Introduction:
Jeremy Smith wrote:The World Wide Web has been around for long enough now that we can begin to evaluate the twists and turns of its evolution. I wrote this book to highlight some of the approaches to web design that have proven to be resilient. I didn't do this purely out of historical interest (although I am fascinated by the already rich history of our young industry). In learning from the past, I believe we can better prepare for the future. 

You won't find any code in here to help you build better websites. But you will find ideas and approaches. Ideas are more resilient than code. I've tried to combine the most resilient ideas from the history of web design into an approach for building the websites of the future.
