From its inception in 1994, the principal aim of Web Style Guide has been to provide a thorough and accessible guide to Web design for developers around the world. Despite the availability of a book version of the guide, we have deliberately chosen to continue to make the Web site materials freely available. Indeed, the new Web Style Guide, 2nd edition Web site contains the full text and illustrations from the printed second edition of Web Style Guide.
