Top critical review
It has flaws - but it is sound and covers alot of ground
on 27 January 1998
I'm surprised by the negativity of the reviews here. Yes, it has flaws. All Web books have flaws. With the fast dynamics of the Web world and the fact that with no standards everyone thinks everything should be done THEIR way it isn't surprising that there exist few GOOD books - yet.
What I like most about the book is that it covers alot of ground. HTML (yes, the HTML *4* sections are poor but the good ol' basic 3.2 is covered well), CGI (yes, not *much* but enough for a start - wish there was more Perl though), how to organize a collection, defining graphics extensions and MIME types ... really alot for the serious beginer.
My professional Web graphics person thought she did quite a good job on design principles and tips and I use it in the class I teach!
