    Excellent tutorial text, June 9, 1999

    I have used this text for a university self-study course. The students have found it very useful. Because so many graphics are made available from the publisher’s web site, very impressive web pages can be created from the beginning.

    An excellent classroom resource, December 27, 2002
    By A Customer
    This review is from: Creating Web Pages with HTML, Comprehensive (Paperback)
    I had the pleasure of using this book in a upper-level web page design class. I cannot recommend it strongly enough. The following are a few comments on the glitch side of things:
    1) On 2.24 there is a serious error. I think the authors switched “rock” and “links”.
    2) RGB triplets in decimal were introduced without sufficient background on p. 3.49.
    3) Case 3 in Tutorial 4 was more of a chore than I think was useful. More on this later.
    4) I’m left unclear about how the underlining occurs bottom p. 6.48-top p. 6.49. Presumably this has to be done by the HTML coder.
    5) The expression “background-image:repeat-x” is wrong.
    6) I think it might have been better to have initialized XDay’s day and month the same way that its year was initialized, i.e., using “setDate()” and “setMonth()”. Or the student could be encouraged to find an alternative to what was proposed in the text.
    7) The dense array technique for population an array seems easier to grasp than the one offered on p. 8.36, although I am not objecting to the authors’ way of populating that array. Again, the existence of alternatives could be underlined.
    8) I didn’t see any use made of the javascript roll-over, which seems a pity.

    General observations:
    1) The authors should have been more generous with their bibliographical material. There are some wonderful online tutorials which could have enriched the textbook.
    There are also some wonderful historical materials about the internet to which students could have been refered.
    2) The problems were imaginative, but too spoon-fed. I guess it’s really up to the instructor to ask the students to put in their own text, etc. For the instructor, this makes checking to what extent a student did his own work well-nigh impossible.

    I plan to use this book next time I teach this class, but will have learned how to work around some of its weaknesses. It is, however, far and away the best book I have seen for a classroom situation. Patrick Carey et al. are to be congratulated.

    Like many required textbooks it is overpriced and there are better books available. It’s still cheaper here than most other outlets and it does provide one more reference to turn to.
