Hi Zak and Anne,

I really like the addition of responsive web design to the new edition of the book. I see that you accomplish this using media queries and compare that approach to creating a separate site for mobile users using jQuery Mobile. Another way to get a responsive design would be to use bootstrap.js, which would be a great topic for a chapter in its own right. Would it have been possible to squeeze in a chapter on Bootstrap?

Does Murach plan to update "Murach's JavaScript and jQuery" anytime soon? If you can't squeeze bootstrap.js into the HTML book, this might be a good place to put it. Then you could call it, "Murach's JavaScript, jQuery, and Bootstrap". Bootstrap is quite popular these days, so it would be great to have coverage of it somewhere.

Again, Bootstrap was a chapter that I wanted to include as well. There are a ton of other useful frameworks as well including Skeleton, Gumby, Foundation, etc. My personal favorite is Skeleton because it's so much "lighter" than the other full-featured frameworks. Here again, we had limited space in the book for Bootstrap.

And yes, we're currently updating the jQuery / JavaScript book!
