Re: |OT| W3Schools
I'm just reading what you wrote. Nothing more, nothing less.
Not if the criticism is based on the contents of a completely different
course. Now if they were asking about PHP courses and you responded
with criticism specific to the PHP course, that would be appropriate.
What you said is like me saying "Don't believe everything John Posts.
He has some bad responses in the xxx newsgroup" - where xxx is
completely unrelated to PHP.
Yep. I don't like it, and I called you on it. Like it or lump it.

You may be right, I never looked at the HTML course.
All courses on w3schools I did look at gave me a good impression.
Of course w3schools is not a place to master a technic, but it is a great

checked their guide, and I knew within the hour what it all was about, and

you'll find things that are not 100% correct.
The advantage is that they provide a quick overview without the details. In
most cases you don't care about the details when just starting with some
And above all: I am too lazy to keep up an online trainingcenter, so I have
no right to complain. :-)
Personally I REALLY LIKE quickstart guides as presented by w3schools.
I really don't like megabytes/hundreds pages of technical stuff before
getting something done.
I like to see a technic at work, try it out myself, and if the technic and I
are compatable, I dive into the Gory Details. :-)
But of course, this is just a matter of taste. I think different people
learn in different ways. I am just the 'hands-on' type of guy, so I advise
w3schools a lot.
just my 2 cent in defense of w3schools. :-)
