Hi,
I don't see any of the head first series books in ITSafari online books.
Could someone please tell me if they are ever going add these books to ITSafari.
Thanks
Dinesh

I guess you miss the following thread, in which Kathy talked about the Head First Book and Safari Site

Right now, we don't have plans for the PDF version... but that's an interesting idea, and we'll bring it up with the publisher. It won't be on Safari because Safari is for text-based books, that can be rendered in XML. That's impossible to do with a Head First book, because they are graphics-based, not text-based. Think of a Head First book as 700+ pages of individual hand-outs, rather than a flow of continuous text. There IS no continuous text flow. It's a *designed* book rather than a *written* book... that's the best way I know how to describe the physical aspects of it. So unfortunately, there isn't yet a way to handle that in Safari.
