The new 7th edition of Web Development and Design Foundations with HTML5 presents coding web pages in HTML5 and CSS3 with backwards-compatible techniques for older browsers, and also provides practice with new features of HTML5 & CSS3 that are supported by the most current versions of browsers.

And then there was the joy of finding out the hard way when my projects ...
By R.M. Penn
Much of what was in the book sss already outdated. It literally said "outdated" in the textbook. And then there was the joy of finding out the hard way when my projects weren't going well that several important lines of code wouldn't work due to tech upgrades since the publishing date. Now I know that technology is improving g at a faster rate than a lot of textbooks, but when you have literally full pages of codes that say"outdated", I get a little snappy about it--why put that in there then? Leave it out instead of showing us the wrong way and then wait until the next leg to tell us "just kidding--hat will never work". Often the step by step directions left out key points. It's too bad too because the layout of the chapters was good and the projects that are worked on with the completion of each chapter and that build on the previous work is a great learning model. It's just unfortunate that the book can't possibly stay current with the technology. If they had a live version of it that could be updated when required, that would be fabulous.

One large flaw in the digital version of the book.
By T. Kinsley
The content of the book is generally good, and the code actually works (compared to other books that often have code errors). Unfortunately, there is also a large problem with the iPad version of this book... The publisher uses a light blue text for the code, which is very, very difficult to see. You spend a lot of time in this book copying code out of the book and into your computer, and for some reason the text that you need to type is written in a most awful, difficult-to-see color. This wouldn't be a big deal, except that the whole point of the book is to learn the code that is written in the horrible color. I just can't imagine what they were thinking when they made that color choice.
