Book GoLive 6 magic

GoLive 6 magic
One thing strikes you when you look at GoLive 6 magic: it's a beautiful object. The classy layout, the horizontal format make it standout from a lot of other technical books. Each chapter's introduction is preceded by a very nice black and white macro photo and a quotation by the likes of Salvador Dali, Aldous Huxley or Woody Allen.

And the content is of the same quality. 14 ambitious GoLive 6 projects clearly detailed by experts in the field and covering a wide range of topics, from creating actions to building a dynamic content management system. In the end you'll realize that you've been using PHP, JavaScript, i-mode, and WML technologies like if it was natural for you. This book is aimed at advanced users, but the way it is written makes it understandable to not so advanced users :-).

It's author, Paul Vachier is GoLive's historical webmaster and he has writen many actions included with GoLive since version 2. His deep knowledge of GoLive might be one of the reasons the book is so clear. Rob Keniger, MenuMachine author, has helped him too with some chapters (maybe one of the important projects he told me about few month ago).

A CD ROM with exercise file is included. If you are too lazy to code, you'll love the ready made extensions like image size fixer. It looks for missing image Height and Width attributes and creates and fills them with the correct values. This is one of my favorite and I've allready used it to fix hundreds of pages.

So I can only say thank you Paul for such an excellent book!
