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


"Yet another title in the successful In a Nutshell series, this aims to bring together all the essential information in a single volume for Unix webmasters; although much of the content will also be relevant to webmasters working on other platforms? This book is highly recommended for thos who have already got to grips with the subject.- Mike Mallett, Cvu, August 2001 'This book provides a sensible introduction to the topics facing a web master. As with all of the O'Reilly sereis books, although it has a gentle introduction, this isn't a book you'll outgrow in five minutes.- Mark Brett, NUAnces, Decemeber 2000
