Card Collection Browser Book
BackFront
What's the difference?
Short answer:
BackFront
Dense Print.

10 pages

Large Print.

16 pages

   Both are 8.5" x 11"
spiral-bound.
Either can be laminated.

The Card Collection
has phone-book
dense print.

In fact, it uses the
same font as the
phone books, 6-
point Bell Centennial

The Card Collection
minimizes flipping
pages and is a good
choice if your eyes
can handle fine print.

In the
Browser
Book, the
HTML and
CSS pages
have 50%
larger print

JavaScript
pages
have 30%
larger print
So, what's the point
of two books?
There's a tradeoff.
   
Color / Font Card
+HTML / CSS Card
+JavaScript / DOM Card
_______

The Card
Collection
is three
stand-alone
products
bound
together.

The idea came
from a customer
after all were
printed.

It's still the best
idea if you like
super density.

In the Card
Collection, most
topics fit on
one page.

The Browser Book
is easier to read,
and a little better
integrated, with
actual page
numbers.

And on the back
is a visual table of
contents and a
combined legend.

In the
Browser Book
each topic has a
spread – a pair
of facing pages.
(See how CSS is
on pages 6 - 7?

Visual Table Of Contents Master Legend

Any difference in content?
Just one:

page 3 Card page 4: Characters, URLs, SSI, XHTML

The Card
Collection has
a big annotated
HTML / CSS
example page.
It isn't in the
Browser Book, but
you can get this
material in the
HTML / CSS
Example Chart
   
   
Otherwise
the content is identical and up-to-date
in both the Card Collection and Browser Book
   
   
Same page size?
Yes, they're both 8.5" by 11".
Here's how the layout differs...
The first two pages are the identical:

page 1
