Editorial Reviews
As XML continues to creep into the mainstream of Web development, XHTML--an XML application--offers a smooth way to move your HTML code to an XML-compatible format and create new pages that exploit the advantages of XML. XHTML Example by Example brings experienced HTML coders and new Web developers alike into the state-of-the-art XHTML world.

The authors spend a few chapters explaining the benefits of moving to XHTML and laying out the basics of XHTML documents. After reading this section, you'll be sold on the "why" and ready to get to the "how." As the book progresses gradually into the more sophisticated elements of XHTML, it explains the differences between HTML and XHTML and defines key terminology. As the title implies, the information is presented through examples. Code in question is highlighted in blue for quick comprehension. Unlike some tutorials, however, the code examples are accompanied by plenty of explanation for a well-rounded learning experience.

You'll get a feel for rich media formats like MPEG-4, SMIL, and SVG, plus some pointers to valuable tools for authoring this advanced content. An appendix includes detailed information on XHTML development tools such as tag editors, validators, and converters that get your code from HTML to XHTML. XHTML Example by Example makes the transition away from the familiar cocoon of HTML a smooth one. --Stephen W. Plain

all about the presentation, August 9, 2003
Reviewer: A reader
This is one of the few well organized texts on this broad subject.
The multi media coverage is esp interesting and DAve Ragget, a founding member of the W3 knows his stuff.

Reviewer:Charles Brewster (Vancouver BC) - See all my reviews
Nicely laid out, well thought out book BUT the web site url given promising the code for download is aliased to Amazon.

After much looping and checking phptr.com site I can only conclude the source code is not available.

Good luck with you debugging.

While the text of the book is useful, none of the promised web material (source code to the examples) is available.
