  • A Great Reference With Caveats

    More experienced interactive/digital media and marketing professionals will find much of the content in The Yahoo! Style Guide to be "duh"-inducing and fundamental. But for the vast majority of media and marketing professionals who don't know web standards, content strategy and development rules as deeply, this reference is like Strunk & White for the 21st century. It's essential for my bookshelf, plus the companion web content will never grow old.
