Well the title doesn't include the word JavaScript. So what do you mean by lots?

I also like that you only want this for advertising. ;) OH Sorry, "AdvertisED" as in goodies that they say you can get with HTML5, CSS3, and JavaScript.

As to your first question, i wonder if there is a lot of javaScript included in the book
As to your second observation, i'm sorry but i dont get it: are you saying i'm advertising? advertising what?
I only wonder if there will be a lot of javaScript needed in order to take full profit from the book...

I meant that you would use HTML5, CSS3 and Javascript so you can create your own sites that all you want is to make money off of the advertising on that site.

Still lots is very vague. Lots could be 10 pages, could be 20 pages, could be 100 pages.

Typically books like this, and I haven't looked at this book. There is a Javascript chapter or two, but it mostly covers the HTML5 and CSS3 bits. Actually, I think that is preferred, there are many great books on JavaScript that taking up space in an HTML5 CSS3 book would feel short changed.

However, in the places where JavaScript becomes necessary to make any html5 or css3 work like working with client side database, then I am sure it is well covered in the book.

Ok, now i get it: in one hand you say javaScript will be just the "enough" to get things going (like ajax, i presume,), and on the other hand the book is mainly html5 and css, as the title states

thank you: i think its reading will be quite useful

I have read the book. One chapter plain JavaScript, one on jQuery and one on mobile jQuery.

The book isn't meant to cover JavaScript and in fact we struggled on deciding as to whether or not to introduce it. In the end we decided that we had to especially when you consider that DnD, Geolocation, Canvas, and more are pretty useless without it. Yes, we introduce JavaScript but leave the real learning of the topic to the Murach's JavaScript and DOM Scripting book. As for jQuery and jQuery Mobile....we're cooking up some new books at Murach...stay tuned!
