4.0 out of 5 stars Great book helps people understand how HTML and CSS should Structured
At beginning I have to say that I didn't care about the CSS and HTML examples in this book. I bought this book for the concepts of how to construct the HTML and apply the CSS that are logical and reusable.

Many of my co-workers who are graphic designers have great difficulty to understand the native characteristics of each HTML tags. Thus, I often see a div tag...

This review is from: Transcending CSS: The Fine Art of Web Design (Paperback)
At beginning I have to say that I didn't care about the CSS and HTML examples in this book. I bought this book for the concepts of how to construct the HTML and apply the CSS that are logical and reusable.

Many of my co-workers who are graphic designers have great difficulty to understand the native characteristics of each HTML tags. Thus, I often see a div tag used as h1~h3 tags. div tags used as ul and li tags. After I introduce this book to my co-workers, they can "visually" see how the HTML and CSS should be used. Which and what tags, attributes and styles should be used.

Great book in presenting the theories and logic of HTML and CSS. Not a book in providing CSS hacks and tips.

This review is from: Transcending CSS: The Fine Art of Web Design (Paperback)
Bought this book with excitement after reading the US Amazon website reviews and have to say, please do not waste your money on a book that is so poorly edited, has an errata sheet that contains only 2 errors, both of which are actually incorrectly stated (can you imagine an errata being wrong??) and which show no proper checking done from a professional who gives seminars etc. on the topic. Stuff on page 165 (Inman position) simply does not work (tested on 3 browsers) and that is at the start of the CSS treatment - in others words the entire balance book becomes useless ! There is clearly indication of no editing even though there are apparently 5 editors for this book - not one of them checked the mistakes and flaws ? What should you think of an author who does not provide a proper errata sheet and yet charges such a hefty price ??
