HTML and the Art of Authoring For the World Wide Web is devoted to teaching the Web user how to generate good hypertext. `As a result of (this) rapid uncontrolled growth, the Web community may be facing a `hypertext crisis'. Thousands of hastily written or ill conceived documents may soon be presented to readers poorly formatted or unusable... .' (From the Preface.) `The clear and practical ways in which HTML and the Art of Authoring For the World Wide Web sets forth the principles of the Web, the operation of its servers and browsers, and its publishing concept is commendable. It will be an indispensable guide to the Web author as well as the sophisticated user.' (From the Foreword by Robert Cailliau.) `Despite its user friendliness, the Web has, by its own virtue, a default that makes it difficult for people to know where to begin: there is no starting point to the Web. Bebo White's HTML and the Art of Authoring For the World Wide Web will fill this gap immediately, as it provides a clear, introductory and sequential description of the fundamental concepts that lie underneath the Web. It describes HTML as an SGML application, explains the relationship between HTML and SGML, and gives a complete description of all the structure that HTML provides.' (From the Foreword by Eric van Herwijnen.)

Untitled PHP is a server-side, HTML-embedded scripting language. ItÕs frequently being used to replace the functionality created by Perl to write CGI scripts). Similar to both HTML and CGI, PHP is faster to program in and faster to execute than CGI. PHP was written specifically for Web site creation, unlike Perl, C, or Java. Companies such as Honda, Patagonia, and Zoom.com all have Web sites utilizing PHP.PHP Advanced for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickPro Guideconsists of approximately fifteen chapters of step-by-step content, aimed at teaching specific topics in direct, focused segments. The scripts featured in this book are based on features and capabilities that current PHP users most frequently inquire about (e.g. sessions, authentication, and object-oriented programming). as well as detailing those technologies that will be more important in the future, such as XML and Wireless Access Protocols.

Visual QuickStart Guides are rapidly becoming the easiest, clearest and most sought-after titles for learning complex new Internet technologies. Even a quick glance at web design sites for the non-programmer (like Cnets Content Builder) shows that designers, graphic artists and content-creators want to use Java. The web is filled with content creators who have used a pre-built Java app., and probably not been 100% satisfied with the results. With just enough Java to get going doing something useful, a strict focus on visual Java (meaning using Java to make interface elements for web pages), and a quality guarantee that the Java in this book will work in most - if not all - web browsers, Java for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide is sure to be an indispensable guide to the decades most important new programming language for the web scripter
