5.0 out of 5 stars Great Introduction to HTML5 & CSS3! 8 Mar 2011
By Web Guru - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
We'll use this book in a community college course for both online and face-to-face classes. The full-color book is engaging for students. The two-page topics are geared towards students who may be more visually oriented and who don't want to read a lot. The hands-on practice exercises encourage students to apply what they've just learned. The students really like the hands-on approach with examples, practice exercises, and case studies. This textbook focuses on how to use HTML5 and CSS3 today and while introducing new elements and techniques that will be utilized in the future. Where appropriate, both XHTML and HTML5 syntax are discussed. There is also excellent coverage of web standards, web design best practices, accessibility, usability, and search engine optimization techniques. A bonus is the textbook's companion website at webdevbasics.net that has a page for each chapter with chapter links, additional information, flash review puzzles,and chapter updates.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Spelling Errors and a Few Coding Errors 17 May 2011
By Tyler Whitney - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Overall the book is Okay. I think its great for beginners and its an excellent resource for folks updating to HTML5 standards and CSS3, because that really is the way to go these days. Unfortunately, I ran into a few issues within code, some places there were colons (:) where there were supposed to be semi-colons (;) in the actual HTML code listed. This is specifically in Hands on Practice 2.9, for the code for a space " " is listed as " :" twice by accident.

Also, the Hands-on-Practice, though very basic, was helpful. I think it should leave more up to the student rather than giving all the code, but then again, it really is just designed for the student to SEE the output of the code that they are working with in the book, so its okay. The end of the chapters really do a better job allowing students to work for themselves. Hands on practice 8.255 is listed twice as another typo, listed on 204 and then AGAIN on 209 when its supposed to be 8.7.

Need some better editors/technical writers to check out the book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book! 29 Jun 2011
By Not Mark Twain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because it was required for a web development class. This book is well written and easy to understand. The student files that come with it are great. If for some reason, you can't get your code to work, you can reference the student files as working examples. The hands-on exercises are extremely valuable.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kindle Version Does Not Include Files 22 Jun 2011
By r3ndering - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you are purchasing this book for a class and need/want the accompanying CD with student files then DO NOT purchase the Kindle version: you won't get them. While you will save $4 and change on the Kindle version it will cost you an additional $24 at the publisher's website to get access to the "Hands-On" files (student files).

As of this date the extended pricing is as follows:

New paperback version with CD from Amazon: $42.39 (plus shipping)
Kindle version + publisher's file download fee: $62.15 (what a bargain)

The author and editor were fantastic and I want to thank them for their fast & courteous responses! If my only interaction had been with them then this would have been a five star review.

As for the text, itself: I am currently in Chapter 5, am learning and find it to be a good read. If you want to get a handle on HTML and CSS (and more) this is a good one to pick up. And, not to beat a dead horse: just make sure you pick up the paper copy with CD for the best experience!

Great introduction to designing web pages and learning about HTML5 and CSS3! The book is very well laid out and easy to understand with lots of practice excercises. Solutions to the practice exercises are available for download so you can check your work.

The textbook website at webdevbasics.net has review games, additional links and resources. There's even an mobile app that you can use to review the chapter topics -- search for "Basics of Web Design Review" in the Android Market. Buy this book if you'd like a gentle intro to web design!
