    Website Upgrade and Maintenance Guide

    If you are studying the various techniques and languages of web development, and haven't looked at the big picture yet this book is for you. Lisa Schmeiser has taken working for a web development concern and disassembled it into it's component parts. She touches on many areas of development, and her approach is more from the forrest perspective than looking at the trees. The most beneficial part is learning what it takes to work in a design atmosphere, and how to structure your work using templates, and various techniques.

    Quite Comprehensive

    It is important to remember that this book is a reference, not a novel. It was not meant to be read from start to finish. You wouldn't read a dictionary from cover to cover, would you? That said, this book is an excellent resource for intermediate/advanced designers and programmers. I don't recommend it to beginners, simply because the depth and size of the book would put many people to sleep. The book is mainly for serious sites with a large number of issues to consider, including making sure the site is usable to those with visual disabilities and maintaining an effective development cycle. The text is divided into 4 parts. The first is mostly theoretical, with such topics as applying standards and discussing technology and implementation. Part II has to do with things like design (i.e. - graphics, fonts, and color usage) as well as keeping a good backend (file management and structure, etc.) Part III focuses on dynamic website production, utilizing forms, CGI, scripting, and so on. Finally, Part IV, 'Exploring the Cutting Edge', looks ahead to the future at things like XML (Extensible Markup Language), and more multimedia. The book also includes 4 interesting case studies, and 6 appendices. All in all, this book has been very useful.
