Although we tried to do our best to avoid any mistakes or errors in the book, we did make some mistakes. We apoplogize for that. Here is the list of the mistakes we've found so far (you can also report mistakes and errors in the book):
- The introduction contains two spelling mistakes: it should be "Guidelines and Common Mistakes" and "Principles for Modern Websites".
- The preface talks about a "list of contributors to the left", but the left page is empty; meant is the page to the left of the Table of Contents.
- Page 26, last paragraph, second line: it should be not "...to ensure that the user really wants to go ahead with their action", but "...to ensure that the user really wants to go ahead with his action"
- Page 38: at the end of the first line of the footnote, it should say "containers", and not "containters".
- Page 40: "We make websites better" slogan, wrapping it to three lines at 800 pixels and only two lines at 1280 px". Instead of two, it takes just one line.
- Page 70, second paragraph, second line: the closing bracket '(line height)' is printed in bold instead of normal. It should be printed in normal.
- Page 75, second paragraph, fourth line down, "explicitely" should be "explicitly".
- Page 87, third paragraph should start not with "The cave at is" but with the "The caveat is".
- Page 90, second paragraph, first line, "Verdana" is listed twice.
- Page 94, the third bullet ends with a semicolon, all others do not.
- Page 97, footnote #15. There is no reference to #15 in the body (the link in the footnote is the same as #17 on page 98)
- Page 104: "Host Hochuli" should be replaced with "Jost Hochuli".
- Page 115, first paragraph, fourth line, first word. "elswhere" should be "elsewhere"
- Page 135-136: in the list of the "Usability checkpoint that you should be aware of", a number 2 of the list doesn't exist.
- Page 141: the words "top" and "of" are combined as "topof", but it should be "top of".
- Page 225, first paragraph, seventh line, sixth word. "Premium" should be "Freemium"
- Page 239, under the heading "Produce Interesting And Useful Content", second sentence: it should be not "...uses to promote its product or service at a website promotes and...", but "...uses to promote its product or service at a website and..." ("promotes" should be removed)
- Page 275: the screenshot used is from a service which is the largest website in South Korea and not China. The image caption should be 'An (almost) perfect Korean website for kids.'
