Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Web Development and Design Foundations with XHTML, Fourth Edition, includes everything you need to develop highly effective Web sites. In addition to comprehensive coverage of XHTML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), and Web design best practices, this book presents information on accessibility, ethics, e-commerce, Web site promotion strategies, and JavaScript™. CSS has become a standard for Web design, so this edition introduces CSS early on and integrates the topic throughout the text, including CSS-based page layouts.

 

This book explains important Web development and design concepts and provides step-by-step presentations that show you how to implement them. With Web design focus activities, as well as Hands-On Practices, Hands-On Exercises, Web site Case Studies, and valuable reference material, this book has everything a beginning Web developer needs. This text is appropriate for a one-semester Web development course.

 

Topics include:

  • XHTML
  • Cascading Style Sheets
  • Accessibility standards
  • Web site design best practices
  • The Web development process
  • Multimedia and interactivity
  • E-commerce
  • Web site promotion
  • JavaScript

Additional Web develloper reference material, including an XHTML Reference, a CSS Property Reference, a Comparison of HTML and XHTML, and an overview of the Section 508 Standards, is included in the Web Developer's Handbook Appendixes.

 

Supporting materials, including Adobe® Dreamweaver® CS3 tutorials, an introduction to FTP, a bonus chapter on XHTML frames, and student starter files for all chapters, are available at www.aw.com/felke. A complimentary access code for this Web site is included with a new copy of this book. Subscriptions may also be purchased online.

 

Further resources are available on the author's Web site at www.webdevfoundations.net. This site provides a useful color chart and an Adobe Flash® tutorial, as well as examples, links, and updates for each chapter.

I like the book. It goes into a lot of detail on how yo write XHTML. It starts you off from the beginning any really describes everything to you down to them meaning of every text.

The book however is cluttered with words. I didn't expect to see it full of pictures or anything, after all it's an XHTML book. But even math text book writers are finding more and more ways to make reading the text book interesting and easier to read.

The writer does however engage the reader with most of the stuff you will learn, so that's a big plus.

But, lump after lump of long winded paragraphs are a good way to make readers get really tired, really fast.

This book is very well laid out and clear to understand with logical excercises. It provides website support with additional learning files. Although not inexpensive, it provides an excellent way to learn XHTML and cascading style sheets. It is the text used for my website development college class.

WASTE OF TIME
This book is a complete waste of time and it will sap your joy. You will learn far more with almost any other book. It is poorly written, the editing is non-existent, the educational constructs are poorly formed, the B.S. content is over the top, and the typos are serious enough to sabotage your web pages. In fact, the educational tone seems designed to sabotage your understanding of what you already know. Most of the details in the book are common sense and yet presented as ultra-orthodox truths from antiquity, as when the author refers to 10 years ago as "the last century."

LACK OF INFORMATION
The presentation of information is difficult to follow because the pages are clouded with stylistic jargon ripped-off from other publishing companies which have maintained a fine reputation for educational success because they know how to educate. To see successful authoring, go to any book store and see how many books there are in the following series: DUMMIES, IDIOTS, VISUAL, MADE SIMPLE, VISUAL QUICKSTART, or MICROSOFT PRESS. These series are designed to educate, empower, and inform. This book is designed to obfuscate.

STYLE OVER SUBSTANCE
For instance, take a look at the cover of this text book (as posted here on Amazon) and you will see a paint roller. This is the author's special icon to let you know you are still reading the same book. Section after section you see a paint roller, to open a section and to close a section. Apparently Web Design is colorful. Other icons, such as FAQ's are just "cute" but useless, because they are not FAQ's but just page decorations. Font decoration is random, extra spacing is random, and highlighting is random.

This is an excellent book to learn XHTML with CSS (the new standards of HTML). Very good for people who've had no prior experience in HTML, and for people trying to update their skills using XHTML and CSS. Everything is very clear, and makes perfect sense. Even though its a technical book, its friendly layout attracts the reader. But it does have typos, I've found over a dozen, but the reader can easily correct them with the knowledge gained from this book. It introduces programming near the end of the book such as JavaScript, PHP, Flash, etc.

This book was written well. I bought this book for an XHTML class I'm taking and I must say ... I've learned a lot about web site building. Some books that I have read on XHTML were written in a very confusing way and, in turn, made the whole learning process difficult. This book, however, fills the hunger that you may have for web site building with practice exercises and easy to follow explanations.

Highly recommended!!

Great book! It was easy to learn to design web pages with XHTML and CSS with all the hand-on examples and practice exercises in this book. This college textbook presents XHTML, CSS and web accessibility techniques, explores web design best practices, and even includes web promotion techniques for web designers! The companion website has links to useful websites and updates to the chapter. I highly recommend this book for web design or web development courses.
