I bought this as a companion to the excellent "Webmaster in a Nutshell",
but was somewhat disappointed. It seems at first glance to be packed with
useful stuff, but the core of day-to-day material on HTML, JavaScript, SSI
and CSS is virtually the same as in "Webmaster in a Nutshell", and the rest
is mostly hand-waving introductions to topics such as streaming audio and
video on the web or, strangely, an Adobe Photoshop tutorial. Even stranger,
the one topic it doesn't seem to cover is web design. There's nothing about
how to create interesting, useful or impressive sites, and precious little about
page layout or navigation.

My recommendation would have to be to forget this book, but buy "Webmaster in
a Nutshell" for the nuts and bolts, and look for a decent web design book which
is actually about web design rather than just web page construction. (Frank Carver - Sherriff, Dec 2000)

I have gone to look for myself. If I should return before I get back, keep me here with this tiny ad:
