CHAPTER 6WHAT IS NEEDED TO BUILD MORTISED SITES

As an accomplished artist once said, “Everyone has the same tools. The only difference is how each person uses them.” This statement epitomizes mortised sites. Building such sites is not difficult, especially for the experienced Web designer. There is, in fact, a very low learning curve for such designers because mortised sites do not introduce any new Web development technologies. Other than learning a graphics software program, such as Adobe Photoshop, the designer need only learn creative methods of using XHTML, graphics, and CSS—common tools for a Web designer. Of course, using JavaScript (scripting language), Flash, programming languages, and other tools can also enhance a mortised site.
