2.0 out of 5 stars You can find better!, 2 Sep 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Dynamic HTML For Dummies (Paperback)
As I bought this book knowing zero about D-HTML, it was a decent introduction, but became increasingly frustrating as I began to understand how D-HTML works. The major problem (aside from some code snippets not working) is that examples for effects are presented for either MSIE only or for Netscape only. Very seldom is code shown that will work for both. As a web developer, developong for only 1 browser is not an option! This book is great if ALL you'll develop for is MSIE -- but if you want compatability with Netscape, buy another book!

This review is from: Dynamic HTML For Dummies (Paperback)
And now you may think that programs that do it all for you would be easier to start with. However if you do not have a basic idea of how Dynamic HTML works you will not be able to answer the questions on what to do. This book goes from the fundamentals to building a practical website. Unfortunately it does not show how to mail "form" information back to you from the website. There are a lot of practical examples but this book is somewhat dated. The book is also geared to Apache server and UNIX concepts therefore it should work on 90 percent of the web sites that you encounter. The code is also more transportable because of this.
You need to check with your potential I.S.P. to see if they're using Internet information services (ISS) if so this book may be of little use because it is proprietary and uses a weird syntax.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dumbed-down, trans-Atlantic trash., 20 Nov 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Dynamic HTML For Dummies (Paperback)
This book is such a disorganised, dumbed-down mess that I have to recommend looking elsewhere. Having said that, there is useful content, but trying to find it is nigh-on impossible.
For example, the Contents is supposed to give a clear indication of the contents of a book. Isn't it? How are we supposed to know what aspect of DHTML the chapter entitled "The Path To Success" covers? Or topics within chapters, such as "Low-sparkled, high-heel boys"! What? Would you have guessed that it concerns a DHTML feature called transitions? I certainly didn't. Note that these are not the exceptions; the entire system of naming chapters and topics is like that. The only way to find information is to use the index.
Also, it's not a tutorial, so if you expect to led, hand-in-hand, through an easy-to-read, understandable, well-written introduction to DHTML...forget it.
Fortunately I borrowed a copy from my local library.
