HTML & Web Design Tips & Techniques

I purchased this ebook in response to the raving stories I learn on Amazon from different clients, but if I acquired it i discovered a few significant concerns. This booklet is a real and utter sadness for any intermediate or low-intermediate clothier.

The Good
- This ebook is especially finished and stable for real newcomers because it covers the fundamentals of html, xhtml, personal home page, javascript, and picture editing.
- the one mildly priceless bits for the hobbyist internet fashion designer are the Hypertext Preprocessor and Javascript chapters. .. yet you will discover an identical, or larger info at the fundamentals of those applied sciences published at no cost on the internet. you do not need to pay forty. 00+ dollars for this details.

The Bad
- This ebook is intensely, super outmoded. lots of the layout suggestions date again to the time while IE five. five and six have been the leading edge, and the examples are aimed toward IE and Netscape Navigator clients! for this reason, the ideas & recommendations are nearly dead now that IE 7 is average, IE eight at the horizon, and FFox three approximately to be published.
- This publication is stuffed with statements similar to "PNG-8 and PNG-24 codecs have just recently bought complete help from the main used-browsers, Netscape Navigator 6 and web Explorer 5"(pg 290). that is how previous this book's assistance are.

DO purchase This booklet. ..
- when you've got by no means equipped an internet web page before
- if you'd like the fundamentals to construct a private online page, a pastime online page, a static web site with lower than 10 pages and no performance except a mailto form.
- when you do not brain development your web site for essentially for IE users.
- should you do not brain your website having a look just like the Geocities websites of again in 1999.

DO now not purchase This Book.
- if you happen to understand how to kind a paragraph utilizing CSS.
- when you have ever used an editor like Dreamweaver, or Adobe Golive, or maybe FrontPage.
- if you would like a website with any kind of interactive performance like wikis, blogs, dialogue forums, etc.
- while you're conscious that the area has moved on from Netscape Navigator 6.

In precis, i discovered this publication to be an incredible pile of garbage. sooner or later, i'd strongly suggest by no means purchasing an internet layout e-book that has been released greater than 1 or max 2 years prior to your real date. Its 2008, do not buy something written sooner than 2006 in an effort to research simple website design. you are going to prove squandering precious time, as I did.
