Editorial Reviews

Bill Carmada
This is not a book about how to clutter up your pages with garish colors and goofy animations. In fact, it's not stupid in the least: it's pretty darned shrewd. Every chapter walks you through one technique you've been dying to use, with detailed examples, explanations humans can understand, fully-annotated HTML and/or JavaScript, and lots of tips for adapting and debugging it. You'll find all the code on the CD-ROM, so you can edit, test and paste to your heart's content. Code to do what? To check what kind of browser your visitors are using. To arrange objects with style sheets and layers. To set up grid page layouts and create border graphics. To make your tables and forms more interactive. To create ad rotators and hover images. To redirect users to a new page. To deploy context-sensitive information. And lots more, including plenty of browser-side and server-side scripts. It helps if you are running Microsoft's Internet Information Server, but even if you are not, there is tons of good stuff here. Are you ready to take your site to the next level? Stupid Web Tricks might be the fastest way to get there.
