Yes, welcome. I've been following your blog where you posted samples from the book and I already learned something new.

Takes me back to Java Network Programming and university days. Congrats on the new book, it's about time we saw an end to some of the crazy HTML and CSS that comes back from design agencies... maybe this will help...

If i follow the rules of refactoring HTML, will it increase the performance of the HTML page rendering?

So may be this book will be helpful to me.

I've been scouring Rusty's blog and haven't come upon samples from the book... is Mokka mit Schlag the right place?

No, The Cafes are.

Welcome Elliotte. I'm a long time reader of Cafe au Lait and Cafe con Leche and look forward to hear about the client side.

Hey guys, I haven't been lurking around too much but when I got the email about this book I had to stop over and check it out. Is there a chapter list on Amazon? I can't seem to find one. Any excerpts? I read the chapter 3 stuff that you posted on your blog and it looked great.

At any rate, what do you see as the largest problem in people writing bad HTML? From what I've read on your blog I'm already doing these standard and basic methods of writing well formed code. How in depth do you go? How much deeper do you go than standards compliance, well-formed code, doc types and the like? I have yet to jump onto the XML train as I've been using JSON and Serve Side SQL for my data processing since starting in web development a year ago.

For someone who already writes clean code by hand and pays attention to these details and does not really do anything in the ways of XML, is there anything in this book for me?

Yeah, I know, I got off on a thought and didn't contain myself. My bad. I'll repost it as a question. Sorry about that. Welcome again
