    Thumbs up Roses to AHFB2000

    The first thing I want to say is that I think your web site Forum is the best I have come across yet!! I posted a problem a few days ago and within 24 hours I had several responses which were clear and concise. I had my application going in no time.

    Next, the reason I am here is to ask a question and give a little of my background. I need a recommendation for a book on HTML Web Site development. A book that covers HTML, Scripts, CSS and XML. It would be nice if the book struck a balance between explanation and examples.

    I live out in western Wyoming and there are not many software types here. I am an old retired telecommunications programmer( X.25, ISDN, TCP/IP, etc.).
    About a year ago I started to set myself into ASP.NET web development and did a Master/Detail web site and then I modified an IBuySpyPortal and an IBuySpyEcomm application. Recently I committed myself to do a Master/Detail web site for an SPCA/animal shelter group as a service project. They don't have money for hosting so I am doing the development in HTML only so that the local ISP can host it. There is a good Internet infrastructure here(DSL and fiber cable) but relatively little expertise. I am beginning to think that there would be more of a need for HTML web site developers than for ASP.NET.

    I have ordered a Frontpage 2003 Evaluation Package, but until that comes I am using Web Matrix which is a little awkward but useable. As long as I don't declare a page as .asp I get the code color coded. I haven't been able to run off the WM Server because it looks like the server caches my pages forever. I can, however, easily execute using IIS and IE6 browser. So, all in all it works O.K.. With your support, I am coming along pretty well, but I do need a good technical reference to get me up to speed.

    Keep up the good work gentlemen, you're doing a great job.
    Regards
    WYDuane

    Thumbs up Great Site

    I give a whole tropical garden of perpetually blooming flowers...not just roses.

    I too am impressed with this site...
    Not only is the help timely...it is how it is provided...there seems to be sincerity in this site by persons who help, that I have not seen anywhere else...that is what I admire most.

    I like the layout and the colours...and the features...

    All in all it provides a great welcoming feeling.
    I wish to say thanx to the management and moderators and especially to Dave, QuietDean and Coothead, they are a treasure and great asset to the site.
    I am sure the others are as well, I just have not met them personally yet....

    Just thought I should share that, because it is exactly how I feel.

    Peace

    My favourite books are the O'Reilly books. I started off with one called "Webdesign in a nutshell".

    Very kind words, I am blushing now

    I've used HTML Complete http://www.sybex.com/sybexbooks.nsf/Booklist/2801?OpenDocument for a couple of years now. It's a good starter book and a decent reference for both the novice and intermediate programmer.
    From Sybex: Get up to speed with HTML, then move on to Web design and advanced Web languages such as JavaScript, DHTML, ASP, XML, and XHTML
