Loads of code samples illustrate all of the concepts, and charts summarize the language syntax, properties, and events. The accompanying CD-ROM provides the book's content in HTML and Adobe Acrobat formats as well as supplemental documents such as Netscape guides. Although this book's presentation is rather unconventional, its excellent code examples and detailed index make it great as an everyday how-to reference. --Stephen W. PlainFrom the Inside Flap:
If you are a complete beginner, then check out Appendix A in Part IV which will introduce you to all of the basics for using HTML Elements to design your web pages including Images, Area Maps, Tables, Frames, Forms, and Embedded Objects for advanced content like VRML, QTVR, QD3D, and Audio files. Appendix A contains a truncated
version of the HTML Elements Primer but there is a much more complete version on the CD-ROM, in both HTML and PDF formats. Both of these online versions have about 100 additional examples that are linked to the documentation from separate files. If you are already deep into web site design, then Appendix A can serve as a reference when you need a quick memory fix.
Most of the examples in this book will require that you use the Navigator 4.0
Appendix E in Part IV consists of a group of charts that contain a lot of condensed information that can serve as Syntax references. These charts are all in a file named:
on the CD-ROM. It is suggested that you print out the whole file for use while you are learning the book and even more importantly for when you are writing your own code.

About the CD-ROM
All of the more than 400 examples in the book have an associated BBEdit HTML Sample file on the CD-ROM in the folder named DHTML-JS_BOOK-Main_Files. Each of these files starts with the word "Sample" and are intended to be run on the Netscape Navigator/Communicator browser. You can also check out the source code for copying/pasting or alteration in any text editor. If you work on a Macintosh, you might want to get the BBEdit text editor from Bare Bones Software, which is specifically designed to work with HTML and other types of coding.
See the last two pages of the book, after the Index, for more information about the contents of the CD-ROM.
