Back from our late-summer break, Digital Web has a slew of news for you with this issue! First and foremost, we have another installment in our popular Web Design 101 series. Virgina DeBolt stops by to help us all wrap our noggins around floats in CSS. Beginners, this is a great introduction. Experts—don’t lie—we could all stand to improve our understanding of floats, one of the cascade’s more complicated concepts.

Secondly, Digital Web is glad to feature an excerpt from Kevin Potts’ new book, Web Design and Marketing Solutions for Business Websites. Kevin covers the basics of how to connect to your customers through an effective website. Focusing on landing page techniques, product page design and individual product pages is the key to keeping customers on the buying path.

Thirdly, I’d like to renew our thanks and appreciation to our Technical Director, Walker Hamilton. During our break, Walker launched Digital Web Magazine on a new CMS. This is the first issue published on the new system. Kudos, Walker!

Lastly, Digital Web is fortunate to sponsor the Voices That Matter: Web Design conference, coming up October 22-25th, 2007. In connection to the event, Digital Web is giving a way a free conference pass to one lucky reader. Contest details are coming soon to this very news feed. So stay tuned, and win a free pass to Voices That Matter: Web Design!
