SON OF WEB PAGES THAT SUCK AUTHOR: Vincent Flanders with Dean Peters and a Cast of Hundreds PUBLISHER: Sybex REVIEWED BY: Barbara Rhoades BOOK REVIEW: Sometimes looking at something bad can help you see what a web page should look like. You immediately begin to say, ¿I would NEVER do that on a web site¿. This begins the creative thought process that, in turn, helps you design a web site everyone will be able to navigate and enjoy. The first thing you should do after purchasing Son of Web Pages That Suck¿ is check out the CD that is included. It contains over a dozen programs that can help the web designer to create better pages. A few of the programs that you might want to try are Snag It (captures anything you see on the Windows Desktop), Top Style Pro (checks for cross-browser problems as you work), Color Schemer (helps create color themes) and Screen Ruler (a virtual ruler that you can drag around the screen). These are trial programs and can be purchased for permanent use. There is a section called ¿Two Minute Offense¿. This is an exercise designed to getting you thinking in two minutes of all the problems that show on the web page displayed in that section. There are other ¿side bars¿ to help you learn also such as Sucks Not and Sucks a Lot. Both titles are self-explanatory. Don¿t forget to check out the ¿What Did You Learn¿ at the end of each chapter. This section will review what went on in the chapter and gives you a chance to be sure you saw everything in that chapter. Remember that wonderful font you found and always wanted to use? Probably on a web page is not the place for it. And be careful of color. Too much color in the same line of text can be a problem. These are only a few of the problems that ¿Son of Web Pages That Suck¿ points out. It is a book you will be hard pressed to not wear it out as its pages contain so much information you will want to read it many times.
