Need someone to take over the forum

Post 1

I'm becoming increasingly busy and I haven't had the time to maintain this page as much as I'd've liked.

Does someone want to take over as manager of the forum? It mostly involves updating the page with new information (and/or reorganising it), promoting the forum on places like the post, and generally keeping it going by talking to people.

Any volunteers?

I hope someone answers this within the next few , years(?), i mean weekssmiley - biggrin.

I might be still here in a cupla years though , i hope.

Oh yes i did have a serious, smiley - erm, well a valid question i would like to ask ; namely i want to buy my brother a book , introducing web design; so i had it in mind to maybe get him an introduuctory book on HTML ; being in no way knowledgeable about web design , i was wondering if HTML is the best place for him to start and if so could anybody recommend a decent book to introduce the subject.
Any suggestions would be very welcome and much appreciated.smiley - cheers

It's been a while since I've looked at any web design books, my suggestions would be hopelessly out of date.

And it depends on your brother - is he just a kid thinking about web design as a career, or a hobby? Is he older and trying to start a new career? Does he have more of an artistic or a logical mind? This is all important because there are very different aspects of web design that a person can get involved in. A book on HTML would be good in all circumstances as a basic reference. But that information is readily available on the web, and your brother may benefit more from a book about page design, layout and CSS, or a book about programming interactive web pages in PHP or Ruby on Rails.

"could anybody recommend a decent book to introduce the subject"

May I suggest the...

Web Designer's Reference: An Integrated Approach to Web Design with XHTML and CSS. Author: Craig Grannell. ISBN:1590594304

It's a bit on the expensive side but Blackwell's have used copies from £7.90 on their site.

This book manages to combine two very important things, in that it is a book that is suitable for someone with no experience of putting web-pages together yet it teaches the modern XHTML/CSS way of web design. I was so impressed that I bought a copy for my slightly geeky 14 year old niece who not only managed to read it, but also understood itsmiley - spacesmiley - winkeye

NB: Your brother will also be looking for a decent text editor that dose syntax highlighting may I suggest http://cream.sourceforge.net/download.htmlsmiley - spacesmiley - geek
