I'm trying to send an email to Ben Henick via the website htmlcssgoodparts.com, and everytime I press the Send button I get the message "Your attempt to send a message failed, probably because you did not provide sufficient information. [Go back]" I entered my name, email address, subject, and message text, so I don't know what other information might be wanted. Also, I discovered that clicking on [Go back] is not a good idea: All the text I carefully entered was gone. Using the Back button works better. -- When this gets fixed, I want to report a typo on the website.

6th paragraph (first one after html5 doc type note)

The paragraph starting "CSS allows those definitions..." in the section "Strict, Transitional, or Frameset?" doesn't fit at all with the text preceding it discussing html document types. It would however seem to fit perfectly at the end of the next section "A Tale of Two Box Models" after the discussion of CSC2.1 footprint calculation.

Table 3-2. Commonly encountered CSS length/size, keyword, and color units

As a user named shonket pointed out on May 23, 2010, there is a semicolon where a colon should be: margin-left; 1.25em; should be: margin-left: 1.25em; The semicolon after "left" should be a colon. In the errata description for shonket's entry there is a note from the author or editor that reads: [orrect as supplied] I'm not sure what that means (perhaps "correct as supplied"), but this should be corrected as it is definitely incorrect. I just purchased the ebook today and so checked the errata. I also checked the printed copy I have and it is incorrect there as well.

figure 6-12

The screen capture is the same in figure 6-11. We do not see the navigation list item that must have been there.

Figure 6-12

I'm trying to follow the graphic in figure 6-12 and I believe the figure has the incorrect graphic. It is identical to the graphic in figure 6-11. The piece is discussing an example about navigation, but the graphic doesn't really depict that. It's possible I'm just misunderstanding the point, but thought i'd send this along in the event you intended for this graphic to show navigation content.

Page 224 states: "a bit ultimately represents the state of a single circuit in system RAM". I think a bit is more accurately described as a boolean switch that would form part of a circuit but isn't a circuit by itself. It can also be described as a memory cell or the smallest unit of memory or electronic data.

Page 237 states: "Wherever there's a need for user-generated content, there's a form." I don't believe this is true. JavaScript and Ajax-based applications can trigger server calls (get/post) without the use of HTML forms.
