Product Details


Product Description

From Amazon

Presented as a one-stop resource, Mastering XHTML is a chunky 1000-page volume, with over 400 pages used for a comprehensive reference to XHTML, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) and JavaScript scripting. Without assuming any prior knowledge, the authors explain how to write full-featured XHTML Web pages, from first code through to final upload.

Unlike some titles, Mastering XHTML does not read like an HTML book rehashed. After a general introduction, there is a chapter on XHTML structure showing how it relates to the wider XML specification. Further chapters cover links, images, tables, forms and frames. There is a useful section on converting HTML to XHTML, either by hand or using tools, a strong chapter on style sheets, and a brief look at JavaScript and multimedia. The closing chapters take a step back to look at the process of developing a Web site, with tips on planning, on making a site easy to navigate, and on how to publish to the Internet. Finally, the reference section includes notes and examples, greatly increasing its value.

This is a well laid-out book with clear and careful explanations and a limited n umber of screenshots. On the downside, those who have existing Web skills may find the pace too slow. It is a book that covers core topics in depth, rather than attempting the whole range of web authoring topics. The authors focus entirely on XHTML code, rather than on tools such as FrontPage or Dreamweaver, making this an excellent companion to books that cover specific products. --Tim Anderson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for Beginners Aug. 24 2006
By Kea - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have a self-taught knowledge of XHTML, and I got this book hoping to learn more about it. I studied it from cover to cover, and, though I would not claim to me a master or expert of the subject, I definately have a broder, sturdier understanding of XHTML. The book provided good examples, so the reader can clearly understand the lesson. I was also surprised to find that it is strikingly different than online tutorials in that it does not simply define tags or provide template-like code for the reader to copy into notepad. Instead, it breaks down the tags and the code, so the reader can fully understand it and manipulate it in his/her own code. I was also surprised to find that it was not at all like the technical reference books that I am used to. The Mastering XHTML book does not assume that the reader has any knowledge of XHTML when starting the book. So even if you know absolutely nothing about XHTML, you will be able to understand this book.

It is definately for beginners, though. So if you're formally trained or already at the O'Reilly Definitive Guide level, you will be horribly bored. If, however, you are like I was and are looking for something to build a sturdy foundation about XHTML, you will be pleased. This is also a good book for transitioning from HTML to XHTML.
