Web Standards

HTML, CSS, JavaScript,® Perl, Python,® and PHP

Serving as both a "how-to" guide and a reference, this book is one-stop reading for all the essential Web standards—XHTML, CSS, JavaScript, CGI with Perl and Python, and PHP. In today's web environment, professional web coders and serious enthusiasts need to create documents and scripts that comply with published standards so your content can be viewed on as many web-capable platforms as possible. This book teaches the standards and technologies necessary to achieve that desired result.

Packed with examples for learning each of these standard technologies and followed by detailed references to each language, this book provides a total package for moving your web publishing to current standards-based coding.

What you will learn from this book

  • A solid background and understanding of HTML and applying XHTML to format specific document elements
  • Using CSS to select and format text, margins, colors, and other elements and position them on the page
  • Applying JavaScript for client-side scripting and dynamic content delivery
  • Using server scripts and CGI with the popular Perl and Python languages
  • Publishing rich, dynamic content using the PHP scripting language
  • The importance of following web standards to ensure compatibility with as many user agents as possible, including Internet Explorer, the increasingly important and popular Firefox, and the latest crop of mobile platforms
  • How to avoid browser-specific code and deprecated tags and attributes that cause your documents to be unusable for many users

Who this book is for

The book is for programmers and web coders who want to learn web standards-compliant coding.

Wrox Programmer's References are designed to give the experienced developer straight facts on a technology, without hype or unnecessary explanations. They deliver hard information with plenty of practical examples to help you apply these tools to your development projects today.

Synopsis:

  • This invaluable resource offers tutorials and real-world examples as well as thorough language references for Web markup languages (HTML/XHTML and CSS), and popular scripting languages (JavaScript, Perl, and PHP)
  • Examines the role of JavaScript, CGI (with examples in Perl and Python), and PHP on the Web and shows how to best use them all
  • Includes a valuable reference section on each technology that can be used for review and consultation

Synopsis:

This book teaches the basics of essential technologies necessary in today's Web-enabled world. The book lays a solid foundation in HTML and CSS and then builds coverage of how to effectively use scripting (JavaScript, CGI, PHP) to deliver content.

The book focuses on the programming (Web building) audience, covering coding (the use of programming techniques) and does not attempt to cover topics typically associated with Web document books--server setup, document content, marketing, GUI application use, etc.  My reason for this is simple:   this audience, programmers, doesn't need that info.

This book assumes that the Web programmer and the Web content owner are two distinct individuals with their own distinct agendas. The content owner doesn't care too much about the technologies used and the programmer doesn't care too much about how the content is marketed.

The book will supply the reader with the following: A solid background and understanding of HTML and CSS, using XHTML as much as possible where supported by Internet Explorer and Firefox A solid background and understanding of CSS The role of JavaScript, CGI (with examples in Perl and Python), and PHP  on the Web and how to best use An essential reference section on each technology for later review and consultation.
