HTML & Web Design Tips & Techniques

I purchased this ebook in accordance with the raving reports I learn on Amazon from different clients, but if I obtained it i discovered a few significant matters. This publication is a real and utter unhappiness for any intermediate or low-intermediate fashion designer.

The Good
- This publication is especially finished and sturdy for real rookies because it covers the fundamentals of html, xhtml, personal home page, javascript, and photo editing.
- the one mildly necessary bits for the hobbyist net fashion designer are the Hypertext Preprocessor and Javascript chapters. .. yet you will find a similar, or greater info at the fundamentals of those applied sciences published at no cost on the web. you do not need to pay forty. 00+ dollars for this information.

The Bad
- This publication is very, tremendous outmoded. lots of the layout information 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 guidelines & thoughts are almost dead now that IE 7 is typical, IE eight at the horizon, and FFox three approximately to be published.
- This booklet is full of statements corresponding to "PNG-8 and PNG-24 codecs have just recently obtained complete help from the main used-browsers, Netscape Navigator 6 and web Explorer 5"(pg 290). that is how previous this book's suggestions are.

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

DO no longer purchase This Book.
- in case you understand how to type 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 are conscious that the realm has moved on from Netscape Navigator 6.

In precis, i discovered this booklet to be a massive pile of garbage. sooner or later, i'd strongly suggest by no means deciding to buy an internet layout publication that has been released greater than 1 or max 2 years ahead of your real date. Its 2008, do not buy something written ahead of 2006 so as to examine easy website design. you will turn out squandering precious time, as I did.
