Chapter 1: Fun with Tables
HTML tables get a bad rap among web developers, either because of their years of misuse in page layouts, or because they can be just plain boring. In this chapter, Ara Pehlivanian sets out to prove that not only are properly used tables not boring, but they can, in fact, be a lot of fun
Chapter 2: Creating Client-side Badges
Badges are snippets of third-party data (image thumbnails, links, and so on) that you can add to your blog to give it some extra personality. Christian Heilmann walks us through the task of creating one for your own site from scratch, using JSON and allowing for a plan B if the connection to the third-party server dies.
Chapter 3: Creating Vector Graphics with canvas
In this chapter, Cameron Adams introduces the canvas element, and shows how you can use it to create vector graphics—from static illustrations, to database driven graphs and pie charts—that work across all modern browsers. After you’ve read this chapter, you’ll never look at graphics on the Web the same way again!
Chapter 4: Debugging and Profiling with Firebug
Chapter 7: Flickr and Google Maps Mashups
