A Complete Cross-Reference to HTML, CSS, and JavaScript

San Francisco, CA - HTML, CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), and JavaScript
are the three basic programming languages that web programmers use to
build functional, attractive, and interactive web sites. HTML creates the
text, images, and other content on a web page; CSS formats and positions
those elements; and JavaScript adds interactivity to web sites by
responding to user choices.

"The Web Programmer's Desk Reference" (No Starch Press, Sept 04) is the
only book to serve as a single point of reference to all three primary web
programming languages. "During the many years that I have been developing
DHTML applications, I have never found a single, complete reference book
that allowed me to quickly look up how the numerous parts of HTML, CSS,
and JavaScript work, and how they work together," explains co-author
Joseph Issi Cohen. "The Internet is a great resource of information for
web programmers, but locating exactly what you're looking for can be
difficult and time consuming. This book gathers all the information into
one convenient place. Rather than having to search the Web, it puts the
answers right at your fingertips, on your desk."

Written by the father and son team of Lazaro Issi Cohen and Joseph Issi
Cohen, "The Web Programmer's Desk Reference" shows how to use virtually
every HTML element and attribute, event, CSS style, behavior, filter,
JavaScript property, JavaScript method, and JavaScript object. The book
also contains a reference of HTML+TIME elements and their attributes,
properties, and methods. It begins with a web programming primer that
gives beginning and intermediate programmers an understanding of the core
elements of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. The bulk of the book is organized
as a reference that lists every element of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. Each
listing contains:

-A brief description of the element
-The element's complete syntax
-An example that shows how the element works in practice
-A list of Internet Explorer and Netscape browsers the element is
compatible with
-A list of all other elements that the element can be used with

Weighing in at over 1,100 pages, with more than one thousand examples, web
programmers at all levels will find this book an indispensable tool.
Forget searching the web for hours, "The Web Programmer's Desk Reference"
is the one place to turn for Web developers who want to brush up on
elements they may have forgotten, find what works with the programming
they already have in place, or discover new elements. The choices are
endless, but "The Web Programmer's Desk Reference" pulls them all together
in one convenient place, so answers can be had with a quick flip of the
