The Good

- the single mildly precious bits for the hobbyist internet clothier are the Hypertext Preprocessor and Javascript chapters. .. yet you will find an identical, or higher details at the fundamentals of those applied sciences published at no cost on the web. you do not need to pay forty. 00+ greenbacks for this information.

The Bad
- This booklet is intensely, super superseded. lots of the layout information date again to the time whilst IE five. five and six have been the innovative, and the examples are aimed toward IE and Netscape Navigator clients! for that reason, the information & concepts are almost lifeless now that IE 7 is regular, IE eight at the horizon, and FFox three approximately to be published.
- This ebook is stuffed with statements similar to "PNG-8 and PNG-24 codecs have just recently obtained complete help from the main used-browsers, Netscape Navigator 6 and net Explorer 5"(pg 290). that is how previous this book's information are.

Its 2008, do not buy something written ahead of 2006 on the way to study uncomplicated website design. you are going to prove squandering precious time, as I did.
