This book does a great job of defining the landscape for HTML5, Dreamweaver, and mobile implementation strategies. I found the chapters on HTML5 Layout Strategies, Media Queries, CSS3 Transformations and jQuery Mobile to be excellent. I like David¿s explanations on HTML5 strategies as they relate to user experience and design¿ two disciplines that aren¿t always easy to combine. Responsive Web design, or Multiscreen as Dreamweaver labels it, is the hottest topic in web design today. Responsive Design allows you to develop a single page, with alternate CSS rules depending on the user¿s screen size. An alternative trend for mobile web development is to design and develop specifically for mobile. A very popular framework for the is jQuery Mobile. The two chapters covering these topics will bring designers and developers quickly up to speed with these two mobile-enabled strategies.
