4.0 out of 5 stars Much improved but could do better, 9 Oct 2003
This review is from: JavaScript for the World Wide Web (Visual QuickStart Guides) (Paperback)
Don't get me wrong I learnt my javascript with one of the earlier editions so it's an old friend. The fifth edition is what the fourth should have been. That one was way out of date. In ths one there are 3 new chapters, 2 near the beginning and one on nodes near the end. The mark-up code has been converted to XHTML but they missed the oportuunity of using a strict DTD so the are still some use of deprecated attributes notably bgcolor and align which could have easily been done in CSS. Also there is no character encoding so it will not validate with W3C. There is a good covering of topics and many variations of techniques but concentrating on form validation, menus and rollovers would have been better. There is still a lot of old stuff about older browsers which is no longer relevant and they should have stuck with the W3C DOM. All in all a much needed upgrade but this should have been done 3 years ago in the 4th edition and this one could have then tidied up the anomolies and looked to the future.
