  • So I got Zeldman's book, Designing With Web Standards, a.k.a. the Shocking Bad Hat book. It's full of really great content; but the tone of the prose makes me want to go lick electrical cables.
    I agree. Great content, but after about a third of the book I felt that I had got the message: Standards good, old style bad, and hoped that finally he would get to the meat of it and "show some code". That never really happened, so I handed the book to out local design people, hoping that they would get something out of it.

    I feel that there is a need for something like this, but with a more technical target, and preferably more cook-book'ish
    Any authors out there who could write it? Or has someone already written a HTML and CSS Cookbook?

      Yeah, I've had the thing barely three days now and I'm already thinking about donating it to one of the local public/university libraries. I have some designer friends who might like it, but now that I think of it, they've been using semantic markup for years before this Fear Of A Black Hat book came out.
