Fonts & Encodings: From Advanced Typography to Unicode and Everything in Between

Fonts & Encodings: From Advanced Typography to Unicode and Everything in Between Lowest new price: $47.99
Lowest used price: $16.48
List price: $59.99
Author: Yannis Haralambous
Brand: O'Reilly Media

This reference is a fascinating and complete guide to using fonts and typography on the Web and across a variety of operating systems and application software. Fonts & Encodings shows you how to take full advantage of the incredible number of typographic options available, with advanced material that covers everything from designing glyphs to developing software that creates and processes fonts.

The era of ASCII characters on green screens is long gone, and industry leaders such as Apple, HP, IBM, Microsoft, and Oracle have adopted the Unicode Worldwide Character Standard. Yet, many software applications and web sites still use a host of standards, including PostScript, TrueType, TeX/Omega, SVG, Fontlab, FontForge, Metafont, Panose, and OpenType. This book explores each option in depth, and provides background behind the processes that comprise today's "digital space for writing":

  • Part I introduces Unicode, with a brief history of codes and encodings including ASCII. Learn about the morass of the data that accompanies each Unicode character, and how Unicode deals with normalization, the bidirectional algorithm, and the handling of East Asian characters.
  • Part II discusses font management, including installation, tools for activation/deactivation, and font choices for three different systems: Windows, the Mac OS, and the X Window System (Unix).
  • Part III deals with the technical use of fonts in two specific cases: the TeX typesetting system (and its successor, W, which the author co-developed) and web pages.
  • Part IV describes methods for classifying fonts: Vox, Alessandrini, and Panose-1, which is used by Windows and the CSS standard. Learn about existing tools for creating (or modifying) fonts, including FontLab and FontForge, and become familiar with OpenType properties and AAT fonts.
Nowhere else will you find the valuable technical information on fonts and typography that software developers, web developers, and graphic artists need to know to get typography and fonts to work properly.

Get Past the Tags!: How to Read (and Write) an XML Document

Get Past the Tags!: How to Read (and Write) an XML Document Lowest new price: $6.95
List price: $6.95
Author: Jonathan R Price

Is this book for you? Yes, if you are a writer. Not a programmer. Not a suit.

Yes, if you must create content that is

  • Consistently structured and formatted
  • Modular
  • Re-usable
  • Manipulated by many programs as you write, store, and publish
  • Displayed in many formats on many platforms and in many media.

In this book: You’ll learn how XML grew out of familiar aspects of ordinary writing, such as proofreader’s marks. XML just formalizes many tactics we have already developed, in the history of writing. You’ll learn how to create content within an XML environment.

Payoff:When you complete this book, you’ll be able to read an XML document—getting past the tags. And you’ll be able to create XML elements, attributes, comments, processing instructions, and, yes, entity references.

How it works:You get step-by-step instructions on building each part of an XML document. No more abstract talk. You can see exactly how each tag is constructed, from beginning to end.

  • Diagrams: You see the structure in a large diagram, so you can tell where each piece of punctuation goes, and what the components do.
  • Examples: You get examples, so you can see exactly how the tags develop, and how they look when completed.
  • Answers: If you have questions, we’ve got answers. Addressing the most common questions that writers raise in discussions, the FAQs give you context and background on the tags.
  • Lookups: You’ll find a thorough glossary and index in the back, so you can use this book as a reference, to look up a concept, tag, or syntax.

Q&A with William Penberthy, author of "Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications"

Q. Why is “Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications” an important book for people to read right now?

A. We are hitting a cycle where more and more applications, both web-based and traditional client-based, are being replaced as they hit the end of their lifespan. There is also an industry trend toward trying to provide users with a single, web-based application that supports many different viewing platforms; including desktop, tablet, and mobile. ASP.NET MVC 4 provides support for all of these different clients out of the box with a powerful, yet extremely easy-to-use, platform that allows for rapid development and easy testing. ASP.NET MVC 4 also supports client side-technologies such as jQuery and Knockout.js that help developers build rich and interactive user interfaces. This book is timely because it takes a higher-level look at implementing the technology in the context of common business problems. It is not a coding book, but more of a design and approach book that helps experienced developers predict and manage potential problems.

Q. What will readers walk away with after reading “Exam Ref 70-486: Developing ASP.NET MVC 4 Web Applications?”

A. The 70-486 is not a traditional Microsoft test, so this book is not a traditional exam prep guide. First and foremost, this book is designed to help experienced developers be successful when taking the test. After that, the most important information in the book revolves around the “when” and “how” various aspects of ASP.NET MVC 4 can be implemented. The book may not tell you how to do everything in ASP.NET MVC 4, it instead acts as a guide to what can be done and when a particular approach makes sense when looking at the bigger picture. ASP.NET is almost frighteningly flexible and customizable, if you can think of something that may need to be done; there is more than likely a way to do it.

Forget those funky robot toys that were all the rage in the '80s, XSLT (Extensible Stylesheet Transformations) is the ultimate transformer. This powerful language is expert at transforming XML documents into PDF files, HTML documents, JPEG files--virtually anything your heart desires. As useful as XSLT is, though, most people have a difficult time learning its many peculiarities. And now Version 2.0, while elegant and powerful, has only added to the confusion.

XSLT Cookbook, Second Edition wants to set the record straight. It helps you sharpen your programming skills and overall understanding of XSLT through a collection of detailed recipes. Each recipe breaks down a specific problem into manageable chunks, giving you an easy-to-grasp roadmap for integrating XSLT with your data and applications. No other XSLT book around employs this practical problem-solution-discussion format.

In addition to offering code recipes for solving everyday problems with XSLT 1.0, this new edition shows you how to leverage the improvements found in XSLT 2.0, such as how to simplify the string manipulation and date/time conversion processes. The book also covers XPath 2.0, a critical companion standard, as well as topics ranging from basic transformations to complex sorting and linking. It even explores extension functions on a variety of different XSLT processors and shows ways to combine multiple documents using XSLT. Code examples add a real-world dimension to each technique.

Whether you're just starting out in XSLT or looking for advanced techniques, you'll find the level of information you need in XSLT Cookbook, Second Edition.
