They will come to understand what Web Services are, where they fit into the 'big picture' and will have many coding examples to choose from within the first five chapters. As they begin to "get serious" about developing enterprise level Web Services, they will be able to refer back to the detailed information about the classes that implement Web Services and come to a deeper understanding of what is happening behind the scenes.

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: $46.67
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.

Looking past much of the hype surrounding XML, Applied XML provides a real-world guide to the XML used in the latest browsers and server-side solutions. Approachable yet filled with useful specifics about XML standards, this book fills a valuable niche for any IS professional, including Java developers.

The notable feature here is the clarity of the authors' presentation and their real-world examples using current tools. They start off with the "big picture" about XML and its potential for allowing today's corporations to structure and deliver data over the Internet. The book then covers all the basics with a full tour of the relevant XML standards like DTDs, XML DOM, and XSL (for displaying XML data).

Because XML is still a fairly new technology, many books drift into theory. Not so with Applied XML, which centers on today's tools (like Internet Explorer 5 and a variety of XML parsers for Java). The book anchors his discussion of XML standards with real-world examples using an online shopping site powered by ASPs and Java. There is also good coverage of the XML document model, including many clear diagrams explaining the hierarchical organization of XML data. If you've been baffled by more abstract explanations of XML, this guide is as good as any for getting you started with this powerful standard. For the Java programmer, examples of using Java to parse and display XML data will also be useful.

Now that XML has moved into the mainstream, it stands ready to do real work on the Internet. Any IS professional who is considering XML for delivering corporate data can benefit from this capable and efficient tour of the advantages of XML for today's businesses. --Richard Dragan

Topics covered: XML overview, Document Type Declarations (DTDs), XSL, XML and information exchange, three-tiered architectures, browser support, XML tags, attributes, comments, namespaces, DOM reference, tree navigation, trees and notes, Internet Explorer 5 and data islands, JavaScript and VBScript, Java XML parsers, server-side XML: Active Server Pages (ASPs) and servlets, XML data types, XML and Visual Basic, and XML queries.

CSS: The Definitive Guide

CSS: The Definitive Guide Lowest new price: $11.89
Lowest used price: $1.44
List price: $44.99
Author: Eric A. Meyer

CSS: The Definitive Guide, 3rd Edition, provides you with a comprehensive guide to CSS implementation, along with a thorough review of all aspects of CSS 2.1. Updated to cover Internet Explorer 7, Microsoft's vastly improved browser, this new edition includes content on positioning, lists and generated content, table layout, user interface, paged media, and more.

Simply put, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a way to separate a document's structure from its presentation. The benefits of this can be quite profound: CSS allows a much richer document appearance than HTML and also saves time--you can create or change the appearance of an entire document in just one place; and its compact file size makes web pages load quickly.

Author Eric Meyer tackles the subject with passion, exploring in detail each individual CSS property and how it interacts with other properties. You'll not only learn how to avoid common mistakes in interpretation, you also will benefit from the depth and breadth of his experience and his clear and honest style. This is the complete sourcebook on CSS.

The 3rd edition contains:

  • Updates to reflect changes in the latest draft version of CSS 2.1
  • Browser notes updated to reflect changes between IE6 and IE7
  • Advanced selectors supported in IE7 and other major browsers included
  • A new round of technical edits by a fresh set of editors
  • Clarifications and corrected errata, including updated URLs of referenced online resources
