Top Customer Reviews
In terms of coverage for HTML5, the author does give you references, talks about the state of HTML5, detecting browser incompatibility and generally does a decent job at discussing the degree of adoption for the technologies he introduces in the book, though he doesn't do a perfect job, so occasionally, you'll want to take a look at one of the reference web sites he gives earlier in the book to see the state of browser compatibility. Furthermore, that part of the book obviously won't age well, so if you see that book without a new edition (second as of this writing) several years now, look elsewhere. Currently, however, the author also does a good job at covering technologies that have gained widespread acceptance or that are gaining traction.
In terms of pedagogical style, the author is a bit inconsistent at times, at least in the beginning of the book.Read more ›
