Overview

The Web doesn't stand still, and neither does this guide: Completely updated to cover the new browsers, standards, and CSS, DHTML, and Ajax features that define the Web today, the one thing that hasn't changed in this edition is its task-based visual approach to the topic. In these pages, readers will find friendly, step-by-step instructions for using CSS, DHTML, and Ajax to add visually sophisticated, interactive elements to their Web sites. Using loads of tips and screen shots, veteran author Jason Cranford Teague covers a lot of ground—from basic and advanced dynamic techniques (for example, making objects appear and disappear) to creating effects for newer browsers, migrating from tables to CSS, and creating new DHTML scripts with embedded scroll areas, fixed menu bars, and more. Users new to CSS, DHTML, and Ajax will find this a quick, easy introduction to scripting, while more experienced programmers will be pleased to find practical, working examples throughout the book.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Now, there's a friendly, usable, convenient guide to the three core technologies you need to build attractive, interactive, modern web sites: CSS, DHTML and Ajax.

It's a Peachpit Visual QuickStart Guide. Chances are, you know the VQS format: millions of web professionals have used these task-focused, lots-of-pictures books to learn the basics (and much more). You can use CSS, DHTML & AJAX for the Web Visual QuickStart Guide to learn from scratch, or use it as an easy-lookup reference to the specific skills you need right this minute.

The CSS and DHTML coverage in this edition has been polished and shined up through four editions -- and through the evolution of CSS and the browsers that support it (or have claimed to!). The Ajax coverage, in contrast, is brand new. Jason Cranford Teague captures Ajax's basics concisely and well. What is it? How does it work? Why use it? How does it fit into the so-called "Web 2.0"? How do you manage server requests, fetch and filter data, fetch responses, use the AjaxBasics.js library?

This book's final section may be its most valuable. Once you've learned how to use CSS, DHTML, and Ajax, how do you use them better? What are today's best practices for structuring pages, and for styling just about everything: headers, links, navigation, copy, content, tables, forms, frames? How do you add and change content on the fly? What are today's most effective, flexible, usable, impactful ways to provide navigation? What easy things can you do with controls, without writing a whole lot of code?

Simply put, this book delivers what you want: answers, skills, fast. Bill Camarda, from the December 2006 Read Only
