This title is divided into four parts. The first two offer an overview and tutorial for CSS and DHTML in turn. Part 3 is a short guide to two popular tools, Adobe GoLive and Macromedia Dreamweaver. The fourth section puts it all together, with coverage of menus and controls, special effects, multimedia, and general guidance on effective web design. There are several appendices, including a skimpy reference.
The author takes a pragmatic approach, explaining how to build pages that work in both Navigator and Internet Explorer, and including brief coverage of browser-specific features. There is some coverage of Netscape 6.0, with its much-improved DHTML support. Although the author has a brief look at web design tools, the main focus is on the code itself. This is not an in-depth guide, and other titles such as Eric Meyer's Cascading Style Sheets 2.0 have more detail. The advantage of this title is its friendly style, plentiful tips, and clear step-by-step examples, making it a good starting point for those wanting to move on from basic HTML. --Tim Anderson
Increasing numbers of Web page creators are familiar with HTML but are daunted by the prospect of using DHTML and CSS. Dynamic HTML (DHTML), a collection of technologies, works on all browsers and helps create a dynamic Web interface that reacts to visitors' needs, while CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) allows designers to create sites with the exact typeface, color, and layout they want. Using both technologies, any Web author or developer can easily add interactive and visually sophisticated elements to a site. DHTML and CSS for the World Wide Web, 2nd Edition: Visual QuickStart Guide, shows readers that DHTML and CSS don't have to be difficult to learn. This revised and expanded second edition is up-to-date on the latest Web standards and browsers, and includes all-new coverage of using DHTML to get information about the browser environment and adding multimedia to a site. It also includes updated basic and advanced dynamic techniques, such as making objects appear and disappear, moving objects in 3D, and adding dynamic content.With over 400 screen shots and visual, task-based lessons, those new to DHTML can use this guide as an introduction to scripting, while experienced programmers will be pleased to find practical and working examples throughout the book. This edition offers full cross-platform and cross-browser coverage. Alle Produktbeschreibungen

The contents are logically presented in a concise manner. The format of the content is rather boring, and the presentation of the code samples and screen shots is not great. I found myself struggling to make headway. Compare this to the stunning presentation of Castro: "HTML for the WWW" (which also covers CSS), and Meyer: "On CSS".
1. The running example, ("Alice in Wonderland"), throughout the book is hardly a real-world project.
2. Book binding - pages are individually glued to the binding and fall out too easily with frequent use - this alone would be reason not to buy the book.
3. Difficult to gel the points just covered, since there are no exercises at end of each chapter.
4. No section heading numbers within chapters; so it is difficult to get feel for book structure, also difficult to navigate the book's on-line companion site to find the code samples corresponding to each sub-section.
5. The book uses forward referencing - in the code samples, tags/keywords are introduced which are only explained later in the book.
6. The book's on-line samples differ to the code in the book.
I wasn't, and I didn't. In fact I found it so off-putting that I took it back!
One major problem is the eccentric sequencing of the topics. Why, for example, do the CSS "pseudo-classes" only appear in Chapter 24, well into the second half of the book - which is supposedly all about DHTML?
Why isn't it included way back in Chapter 4, for instance, which discusses CSS text controls?
A second key issue was the emaciated index.
How many web designers would know, if not already familiar with CSS, what a "pseudo-class" is? Not many, I'd guess. Yet the index makes no mention of "hover", "active" or "visited". The "link" pseudo-class, on the other hand, IS referenced in it's own right - 16 times!
Bottom line: You get what you pay for.
