Looking for the Errata for HTML, XHTML, and CSS for Dummies? We moved it to here.

Here are some of the issues we have noticed so far:

If you compare Figure 11-4 with Figure 11-3, you can find a number of significant differences:

One thought on “Errata

    Hi guys

    I’m a content editor with some HTML knowledge but also deeply detail-obsessed :-) Some of the things I spotted will, I think, cause pages to render incorrectly or truncate. People with some prior knowledge will spot them and fix, but complete newbies who are more likely to copying examples with forensic accuracy will be stumped as to how to put things right. So this is all intended to be helpful:

    Page 68: Custom names code block at foot of the page: spaces between “” at beginning and end of kwrd attributes

    Page 71: same example code used as above (same issue)

    Page 78: Lee Iacocca (not Iococca) (code and screeny)

    Page 113: code at foot of the page should read title=”trumpet” (lower case “t”, close up spaces before and after =)

    Page 115: code in middle of the page should read title=”Visit the W3C Web Site” (same issue re spaces before and after =)

    Page 149: CSS code suggests width=107px, but…
    Page 150: explanation copy at foot of the page indicates that navbar area is 100px wide

    This is as far as I have got so far :-)

    Regards, Karen
