My thanks to Bill French, tech genius at Myst Technologies, for his extremely kind and generous review of my newest book, Creating Cool Web Sites with HTML, XHTML and CSS (Wiley, 2004). To summarize in one sentence: “Dave Taylor has done a magnificent job of assimilating the most important aspects of creating useful Web sites in this concise book.”.
The full review says:
I�don’t normally review books about Web site development, but I couldn’t resist mentioning this one. Dave Taylor has done a magnificent job of assimilating the most important aspects of creating useful Web sites in this concise book�(Creating Cool Websites).
Dave’s style�provides a book that is educational�and flowing while also suitable as a reference. His observations about advanced CSS are very useful in coming to an understanding about the power and benefits of this aspect of smart Web site development.
“The idea that containers can hold child containers and that you can alter the appearance of the parent through CSS is a cornerstone of advanced Dynamic HTML…”
His explanation of concepts like this will put money in your pocket.
You can read the entire review here, if you’d like. And don’t miss learning more about Myst’s MySmartChannels technology too. It’s at least a light year ahead of whatever weblog / RSS tools you’re using today.
