"Robert Sebesta's Programming the World Wide Web is one of the most valuable resources available to readers seeking a solid introduction to the construction and maintenance of Web sites. It includes clear explanations of the most current and widely accepted programming tools including client-server technologies such as XHTML, XML, JavaScript, and Java applets, as well as server-side tools like Perl, PHP, and Java servlets." In this edition, the new chapter on PHP, the heavily revised chapter on Web access to databases, and the new description of XML Schemas provide the most up-to-date tools needed to develop platform-independent Web sites suited for the rapidly evolving environment of the Internet. This edition also provides a new organization that clarifies the distinction between the many client-side and server-side technologies accepted as the current industry standards.
