THE GOOD: The first two parts of the book constitute a solid HTML primer written in a friendly, "only as technical as is necessary" style, moving into more complex web programming topics in later chapters. Best practices and compliance with the emerging HTML5 standard are emphasized throughout the short self-study lessons. Further, the closing sections of the book provide sound "real world" advice on topics like hosting, marketing, and publishing platforms.
THE IFFY: I felt that CSS was introduced rather clumsily, as if the authors took their old HTML 3.2 lessons and swapped in CSS code for the deprecated visual markup tags. Will confused newcomers persevere until Lesson 13 when the big picture is finally explained?
THE NOT-SO-GOOD: Visiting my local bookstore confirmed that the minor (but fairly frequent) syntax and spelling errors were not confined to my review copy. Less forgivable is the reference to Appendix B, "HTML Quick Reference", on page 150. Appendix B does not exist.
BOTTOM LINE: On page 538, the authors state that "visitors aren't going to have much patience if your web page is poorly organized or full of spelling errors." Again on page 543, "Spelling errors and bad grammar reflect badly on you, on your work, and on the content you're describing. It may be irritating enough that your visitors won't bother to delve any deeper... even if the subject you're writing about is fascinating." Applying these stated standards to the book, I would encourage Ms. Lemay and Mr. Colburn to demand an apology from their publisher.
The book barely touches on some important topics such as WYSIWYG editors (WYSIWYG is the acronym for "What You See Is What You Get" - pronounced wis-see-wig). *Real world* Web publishing use WYSIWYG editors (such as Adobe Dreamweaver) and other tools to expedite the development of Web sites. Hand-coding Web pages from scratch is almost never done.Read more ›
I learned the basics of web publishing when it first came round with the original version of HTML, but I haven't used it in a while, and I've forgotten much of what I had learned. I decided it was time for a refresher and time to find out what CSS is. I chose this book because it was going to let me in on the secret of CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). This seems to be the IN thing associated with HTML.
The book starts off with an easy introduction to the web, browsers, and website hosting. I already knew most of this, so it was quick reading. The real lessons start in chapter three with an introduction to HTML. The book understands that many readers may have learned previous versions of HTML (Hyper Text Markup Language), so they often show codes that were previously used and what version 5 has replaced them with.
The chapters have code examples that can be read or tried, and end with a summary, workshop, Q&A and a quiz.
I co-own a company that makes e-books, among other things, and they are also in HTML code nowadays. Even though I have programs that help me put the e-books together, understanding the HTML means I can fault find errors and make the e-books do fun things to be more interactive. This book has helped me a little in that regard, although I don't know if I have the skills to produce a high-quality picture-book app.Read more ›
