5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent! Covers HTML5 & CSS3 the right way! 2 Nov 2012
By Firebuilder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Note that this review is for the paperback version, not the Kindle edition.

Felke-Morris does an outstanding job of covering the foundations of HTML5 and CSS3 in this 6th edition. Each chapter has Hands-on-Practice exercises with step by step instructions and clear visuals that capture the result of the code. Solutions to the practice exercises are provided in the student data files so that learners can compare their work to the correct solution. There are also end of chapter exercises and four different case studies that build across all chapters, with solutions available only to instructors. There are complete instructor materials available on the publisher's website including test banks, end-of-chapter and case study solution files, PowerPoints, example syllabus, and instructor manuals. In addition, there is a superb, open-access companion website developed by the author with tons of supplementary resources, flash cards, and chapter updates for any errata discovered after publication (webdevfoundations.net).

I've adopted this book for a college level introductory web development course after reviewing at least a dozen textbooks from academic publishers. The book is appropriate for beginners as well as those who are already familiar with web development and want to learn more about CSS layout and the differences between XHTML and HTML5/CSS3. What sets this book apart from the rest of the pack is that it covers the material based on current specifications and trends, separating HTML structure from CSS layout and styles. The vast majority of books published by academic publishers are just using small incremental updates to previous editions, still use HTML tables for layout and menus, teach deprecated elements, and contain downright ugly or broken CSS for chapter exercises. Believe me, I know - I've spent countless hours reviewing them all very thoroughly and most are a waste of time and effort.

Web Development & Design Foundations, 6th edition is the ONLY textbook out there with a full set of instructor materials that covers HTML & CSS as it should be covered. Chapter 1 introduces how the web and the Internet work. Chapter 2 gets right into HTML basics, lists, and links. Chapter 3 jumps right into CSS for style and formatting; chapter 4 covers images and introduces the new CSS3 visual effects; and chapters 6 & 7 delve deeply into CSS for page layout (that other textbooks barely touch on). Students learn to layout their pages the right way before tables are even introduced in chapter 8. Other topics include forms (standard and HTML5), mobile layouts, responsive design and media queries, multimedia, website planning and web project management, e-commerce, and an intro to javascript.

I can't praise this book enough - it is clearly best of breed. We are currently using the book in five sections of an intro web development course designed for non-technical university students and they are succeeding. Consider it classroom tested. Thank you, Terry Felke-Morris! Great book!

This book is great whether you're taking it with a class at college, or just getting it on your own for self paced learning. Hands on chapter summaries walk you through every step of learning HTML, HTML5 and CSS.

Great book! They have many lessons with partially finished HTML web pages where they have you go through a step by step instruction on how to code with CSS and HTML5. No regrets about this purchase.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book 16 Feb 2013
By Ben L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had to buy this book for a class I'm taking on HTML5. I have had some previous experience with HTML and CSS. The subject material in this book is pretty good, and the exercises cover all of the basics required. I'm only a few chapters in, but talking to my classmates, they also feel like the book explains the material very clearly.
