Product Description

Amazon Review

Today's Webmasters must be literate in a number of different--and ever-evolving--languages and technologies. Webmaster in a Nutshell is meant as a tool for dealing with this demanding requirement. Although this title leans a bit toward freeware tools, it offers plenty of universal information as well.

This guide briefly tours the Web and covers basic HTML, tables, forms and frames in a series of quick reads. (This discussion offers just enough information to jog the memory to proper HTML usage.) You get in-depth coverage of cascading style sheets (CSS), the Extensible Markup Language (XML), JavaScript, HTTP, CGI and Perl. Stephen Spainhour and Robert Eckstein explore CSS in brief but do cover the pending W3C standard. They also provide a refreshingly quick overview of XML. To present JavaScript, the book makes excellent use of diagrams to illustrate the object hierarchy and the way the language works with windows and frames.

Webmaster takes on a decidedly public-domain slant in its presentation of server configuration, primarily aimed at the freeware Apache server, and PHP, the freeware server-side scripting language. Even if you don't code with these tools, however, this book offers plenty of industry-standard reference. --Stephen Plain --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

You already knew I was a geek, but this is stretching it even for geeks. I have, though, read them in bed.)...a near-perfect reference. -- Bill Blinn, Technology Corner, Jan 25, 2003

Format: Paperback
Although not a beginers guide I would still recommend a beginner buy this book. It is a "reference" book not a "learn to". You will certainly learn things from it but its main aim is to help you not teach you. A great book to supplement online tutorials and books. Ive had it since 1996 and still use it.

Excellent reference, used daily. Could be perfect...
Includes complete texts of the JavaScript and PHP4 Pocket References, both concise and to-the-point. Needs coverage of CSS2 (Meyer's new edition?), XHTML and XML. Useful stuff on Perl CGI and Apache 1.3 configuration.
The 3rd edition was out of date when it came out, as was the 2nd... Come on O'Reilly, where's the 4th, fatter edition?

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for anyone already familiar with HTML and who wants to expand their knowledge into more advanced areas. It not only explains the theory behind features like JavaScript or CSS, but also covers practical topics like browser incompatibilities.
