DHTML and CSS for the World Wide Web

Front Cover
Peachpit Press, 2001 - Computers - 592 pages
Increasing numbers of Web page creators are familiar with HTML but are daunted by the prospect of using DHTML and CSS. Dynamic HTML (DHTML), a collection of technologies, works on all browsers and helps create a dynamic Web interface that reacts to visitors' needs, while CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) allows designers to create sites with the exact typeface, color, and layout they want. Using both technologies, any Web author or developer can easily add interactive and visually sophisticated elements to a site. DHTML and CSS for the World Wide Web, 2nd Edition: Visual QuickStart Guide, shows readers that DHTML and CSS don't have to be difficult to learn. This revised and expanded second edition is up-to-date on the latest Web standards and browsers, and includes all-new coverage of using DHTML to get information about the browser environment and adding multimedia to a site. It also includes updated basic and advanced dynamic techniques, such as making objects appear and disappear, moving objects in 3D, and adding dynamic content. With over 400 screen shots and visual, task-based lessons, those new to DHTML can use this guide as an introduction to scripting, while experienced programmers will be pleased to find practical and working examples throughout the book. This edition offers full cross-platform and cross-browser coverage.

Not a great book, but one can't really hope for that in tech books released as rapidly as possible to track emerging technology. This was adequate, taught me what I wanted to know about the boundaries of DHTML, and was better than most computer books of its ilk. Read full review
