What you will learn from this book
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.
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.
