Chapter 12. List-O-Matic


As you might have guessed by the title, this chapter is all about lists. Why focus on lists? Simple. As designers have moved toward adopting web standards they've learned to embrace the humble list, turning lists from unstyled but semantically rich XHTML lists, styled with the browser's default style sheet, to well-styled lists that use CSS for design and presentation.

One area where XHTML and CSS lists come into their own is for the creation of web site navigation, and one of the primary focuses of this chapter will be on marking up and styling a list to create the Famous Primates web site's navigation.
