Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Here's a book for those already proficient in using HTML to design more complex Web pages. Its purpose is to educate the reader on using style sheets and XML to make better Web pages. Style sheets are a means of providing additional and advanced specifications for the translation of mark-up codes. As a result, designers can present more advanced designs while actually reducing coding, increasing the legibility of marked-up copy, and creating a page that's easier to maintain. They can be used with the Web's workhorse markup language, HTML, or with the newer, more advanced XML.

Boumphrey walks you through the thinking behind style sheets and XML, and then shows you how to use them to get more out of your design efforts. This is not a book for beginners--it requires at least a sound intermediate understanding of HTML. No knowledge of XML is required, though. Boumphrey provides all the explanation you need to follow the examples and start putting XML to work for you. The first part of the book deals with the basics--the purpose and use of style sheets and an introduction to XML. Part 2 tackles the question of what approaches work best with which browsers. Part 3 goes on to cover more advanced information and techniques. Also included is coverage of CSS1, CSS2, XSL, and Mozilla standards as well as nine technical information-dense appendices. --Elizabeth Lewis

From the Publisher

This book is for the discerning and forward thinking web developer. One who recognises the limitations of plain HTML and wants to take full advantage of technological advancements such as CSS and XSL to create the most attractive, information packed and yet totally user friendly real world web pages. It assumes a basic understanding of HTML but requires no experience of XML.

If you are looking for info on XSL, don't stop here. The information in this book is far out of date for the IE5 implementation of XML/XSL.

Eventhough CSS1 and CSS2 are covered, the major stress is given for XML and XSL. Using this book I created a number of good XMLized sites. It has good introduction to XML, XSL, CSS1 and CSS2. Eventhough CSS for HTML is covered less when compared to XML, this is a good book.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Jordan Houbanov on February 8, 2000
Format: Paperback
The book covers what seems to be an older spec for XSL (theremust have not been XLST at the time) (the book published in thebeginning of 98).
The book seems to cover CSS stylesheets quite comprehensively. I do not need to have a deeper knowledge of CSS so I have not read any other books on the subject and cannot compare.
Examples and explanatory text in the book seem a bit difficult to comprehend, especially if browsing. Even when reading carefully it seemed to be more difficult to understand what each example illustrated that other reference books I have read. END
