Thanks so much for your great book. I bought a copy of "HTML and CGI Unleashed" and it helped me immensely. It is well written and very clear. It is easy to see that you put a lot of effort into it.

Your HTML Station web site is really great too. I have enjoyed browsing through it. Even though I have been coding HTML for quite a while, I still like to browse through the 'tutorials' and example sites. Yours is just like your book--straight forward and to the point.

Thank you for all your hard work..

Dear John,

Thank you, thank you, thank you! Finally a reference that goes beyond the basics! I didn't realize how much I needed this book until I began to use it. I especially like the inclusion of human factors and web philosophy found throughout the content. As an intermediate level web developer I find many texts that talk over me or under me. You have managed to hit the middle. Excellent work!

"Yes another in the series of Unleashed Books. This edition is a Godsend for anyone with a bent on doing their own CGI scripts, but with a limited C or PERL knowledge base. John December, almost a household name among Netizens, is joined by Mark Ginsburg and the outcome is a refreshing look at the intricacies of Web Publishing. Like most of the Unleashed books, HTML &CGI UNLEASHED does require you have a fair understanding of what is involved in Web Publishing. Pick this one up before they're all gone and you have to wait for the reprint."

I just wanted to say that I enjoyed your book thoroughly. I originally borrowed if from a friend and then found (after I returned it) that I needed it for my daily work--obviously I purchased it. I found the references within the book extremely important for many of my projects and customers.

Thank you for any information. Again, I really enjoy your book and use it regularly. Big praise from a non-programmer, non-professional Web page developer.

I just wanted to let you know that I thoroughly enjoyed your book, "HTML & CGI Unleashed"! It has helped me greatly in many instances - especially learning/understanding CGI programming. It has made me somewhat of a local expert ;) and I just wanted to pass along my compliments on an excellent job.

Thanks much!

Hi John,

I brought home my new HTML & CGI Unleashed book this evening.

As a new Web page developer, coupling the current wave with my creativity, I hope to have some fun too.

After finishing up HTML for Dummies, picking up your book and going thumbing thru chapters 19-21 look like a VERY timely next step for my growth in this area. Thanks for your contribution to the "synchronicity".

About a year ago when I left a tech writing job at a software company to become Webmaster at DeLorme, I searched in vain for *any* published books on HTML or the Web. At the time, I thought I should write one, and the countless fluff that's out there proved that correct... I can write three paragraphs on the difference between <h2> and <h3> with the best of them<g>.

Your book is another matter. It is wonderfully useful and wonderfully well-written. Had it been available a year ago, I might not have had as much fun learning the subtle ins and outs of web serving, but I'd be much farther ahead. I recommend it to anyone who wants to know the whole story about Webmastering. From CGI to principles of hypertext design, its got it all.
