Cascading Style Sheets are no longer just
something interesting to tinker with, but
rather a reliable method for handling all
matters of presentation, from fonts and
colors to the layout of the entire page.
In fact, following the standards is now a
mandate of professional web design.
In this complete revision to her popular
book, author Jennifer Niederst Robbins
makes sure that readers understand
how important these standards are to
great web site design. New coverage of
CSS, rich media applications, and web
standards is included. Exercises that help
readers learn various techniques and
short quizzes to get up to speed with key
concepts will be available online.

a major climate change with regard to

using (X)HTML as a design tool, but
as a means of defining the meaning and

For web developers worried that the new Ajax
trend will force them to re-do all of their
web projects, this refreshing guide offers an
entirely new approach to the topic. Rather than
introduce Ajax as a completely new way of
doing things, the book shows web developers
how to integrate Ajax with existing web sites,
and does so by building to Ajax rather than
building from an Ajax foundation. It will help
developers see how the practices they follow feed
right into Ajax -- and that, in most cases, they
already work with the technologies involved.

In this unique work, leading computer scientists
discuss how they found unusual, carefully
designed solutions to difficult problems. This
is not simply another design patterns book, or
another software engineering treatise on the
right and wrong way to do things. This book
lets the reader look over the shoulder of major
coding and design experts to see problems
through their eyes. Authors think aloud as they
work through their project’s architecture, the
tradeoffs made in its construction, and when it
was important to break rules. The book is edited
by Greg Wilson, a contributing editor with Dr.
Dobb’s Journal. The list of authors alone will

Example
explores Ruby’s functional power
through the use of numerous practical and
illustrative examples. The book includes
short scripts, ranging from the simple to the
complex, that do something interesting while
also illustrating key concepts in Ruby. These
scripts manipulate text, manipulate numbers
(in ways that extend Ruby’s numeric classes),
and much more, all while showing readers
how to use the language to extend itself. The
author offers full explanations of how the
provided examples work, as well as ideas for
expanding and improving them. Readers learn
about Ruby’s abilities by experimenting with
IRB (the interactive Ruby shell); RubyGems;
and relatively high-level topics such as open
classes, mixins, inheritance, and functional
programming (both straightforward recursion
and built-in methods like map, inject, and
so on). An introduction to building Web
applications with Ruby on Rails is included as
well as how to get Ruby working within a Web
server.

Ableton Live continues its rapid expanion
through the music world--no longer a simple
loop-based sampler/squencer, Live is being used
in situations that its creators probably didn’t
imagine at the beginning.
This book identifies tasks that the typical
Ableton Live user might run into, and looks
at working methods and solutions in detail,
combining practical advice with inspiration.
Music Projects with Ableton Live
will be useful
and stimulating for Live users at all levels. No
matter how you’re using Live, all of these tasks
will have something to offer you. The book
is based firmly on real-world use; a theme
enhanced by the inclusion of quotes and tips
from experienced live users.
