Hi,
The book gives a pretty good perspective of Responsive Web, looking forward to the completion. Sending you some spell errors for correcttion.
1. Page 15 Line 3 - At what point to you respond? 'to' be changed to 'do'
2. Page 16 Section 1.2.1 (second para) Some of the information a device relies to a server includes browser, the resolution of the device being used, and the size of the widow viewing the page ('relies' to be changed to relays)
3.Page 16 Section 1.2.1 (last but one para) It’s important to note the differences between the two because in some cases you might wish to serve the smaller size rules to a browser widow that’s been slimmed down by the user as to avoid a horizontal scroll bar, or because of certain site functionality. ('widow' to be changed to window, probably needs to be checked at other places too, saw the error at one more place).

Also it is possible what tools are available for developing "Responsive Web" commercial and open source?

Regards,

Re: Errata in MEAP
Thanks for the spelling corrections. I really appreciate it and I'll make sure to correct the manuscript.

As for tools, there are a lot of great tools you can use to ease responsive web development. For front end frameworks, look into Foundation by Zurb or Twitter Bootstrap.

Re: Errata in MEAP
We are exploring using Bootstrap. One of the nice things is that they allow selecting which components get included and then create a customized version of the CSS and JS. Foundation has this as well.

"If the entire point of the responsive web is to build site’s that are fluid, this simply won’t due."

The final word should be "do"

Re: Errata in MEAP
They are both really similar. I prefer Foundation for prototyping and Bootstrap for stuff like admin panels and web apps, personally.

Here is another small typo... On page 35, 4th paragraph

"EM should only every be applied..."

probably should be

"EM should only ever be applied...".

Re: Errata in MEAP
page 27 the example #container {...}

shouldnt that be .container since the div for the container does not have an id but a class?

Re: Errata in MEAP
Possibly conflicting design instructions / guidelines:

On page 21 you say:

"The page will flow by default from top to bottom, and
then left to right (or right to left depending on your use of CSS floats)."

but then on page 23 you say:

"We want to model our DOM on a left
to right, top to bottom structure."

and again on page 62

"It’s best to think of the responsive grid goes from left to right, then top to bottom."

I suggest you at least address these conflicting statements so we understand why it is ok (if it indeed is ok) for the CSS Box model to be one way but to have DOM and responsive grid be thought of in another way.

unless you really do want people to create cops, which would be a neat trick smilie

Re: Errata in MEAP
On page 25 the listing gives the section a class of "main" but on page 23 it was defined with a class of "content". (Bot section closing comments differ as well.)

The content of the section is structured differently as well in the way that the article encloses the header on 25 but not on 23.
