DHTML and CSS for the World Wide Web: Visual Quickstart Guideby Jason Cranfo Teague
Synopses & Reviews
If you can't afford to let the Web get ahead of you, you can't afford not to have this guide. In this best-selling Visual QuickStart Guide, you'll find all the friendly, step-by-step instructions you need to start using DHTML and CSS to add visually sophisticated, interactive elements to your Web sites. Completely updated to cover the new browsers, standards, and DHTML and CSS features that define the Web today, the one thing that hasn't changed in this edition is its task-based visual approach to the topic.
Using loads of tips and screenshots, veteran author Jason Cranford Teague covers a lot of ground--from basic and advanced dynamic techniques to creating effects for newer browsers, migrating from tables to CSS, and creating new DHTML scripts. If you're new to DHTML and CSS, you'll find this a quick, easy introduction to scripting, and if you're a more experienced programmer, you'll be pleased to find practical, working examples throughout the book.
