    Excellent book for getting started with HTML5 and CSS3

    Great resource for developers just getting started with web development using HTML5 and CSS3. Good introductory coverage of using CSS for page layout and formatting. Covers HTML5, CSS3, and jQuery topics needed to develop a web page from start to finish.

    Great Intro to HTML5 and CSS3

    With the introduction of HTML5 comes lots of new features that will enhance your existing web sites and make them more accessible to mobile users. Every site should be taking advantage of these new features. I enjoyed the rich detail and examples with each topic. It was a pleasure to see coverage of Jquery and Jquery Mobile in this book. The advanced HMTL5 topics toward the back of the book gave me a head start on the new features like Geolocation and web storage. I hope Murach will consider publishing an entire book dedicated to these advanced HTML5 features in the near future.

    Murach’s HTML5 and CSS3 begins by providing a general over

    Murach’s HTML5 and CSS3 begins by providing a general overview of how web applications work and some of the tools used in the process of developing web applications. The next several chapters present a detailed explanation of how HTML is used to structure a web page and CSS is used to format the content of the web page as well as how to code a web page using both languages and the freeware tool Aptana. It provides an explanation of the Box Model and how to use it to facilitate web page development. The book does a good job of covering the use of links, lists, images, tables, forms and images, as well as the new controls in HTML 5, and it even has a chapter devoted to formatting web pages for printing. There are several chapters devoted to JavaScript and jQuery. The book concludes with chapters on Advanced Features in HTML5 and CSS3 and Design and Deployment.

    I found this book to be a solid resource on web development fundamentals, and I’ve always liked the concept of paired pages that Murach incorporates into all of their books.

    I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone new to web development or anyone wanting to learn the new features that HTML5 and CSS bring to the web development arena.

    Murach’s HTML5 and CSS3] is an excellent source for anybod

    Murach’s HTML5 and CSS3] is an excellent source for anybody, novice or professional, looking to get started with HTML5 and CSS3. Like all Murach books it is formatted with text on the left and figures on the right demonstrating the text. I really enjoy this format and it works well for reference books like this one. The examples used in the book show examples of web pages that you will find in the real world. It quickly gets you up and going with basic web pages and then moves to more advanced topics. It shows how to integrate Javascript and jQuery with your pages to add a degree of interaction beyond static web pages. It has earned a spot on my reference shelf, and is my go to guide, for when I’m designing web pages.
