This week's book giveaway is in the OO, Patterns, UML and Refactoring forum. We're giving away four copies of Refactoring for Software Design Smells: Managing Technical Debt and have Girish Suryanarayana, Ganesh Samarthyam & Tushar Sharma on-line! See this thread for details.
I read through the first chapter you posted... very nice.
From the title... I would guess that the emphasis of the book would be on coding techniques to solve a sampling if issues that developers commonly run up against... but the content of the first Chapter seemed to lean more torwards cross browser compatability of code...
Is one or both of those topics the primary emphasis of your book?

Yes. In fact, I'd say that they are the focus of the book. The book started as lessons that John learned the hard way while developing jQuery. It's been expanded beyond that, but many of the examples are still rooted in "here's a real-world problem I had to solve". And of course, browser compatibility is always one of those problems.
