As a result I think a beginner would find this a frustrating read. Useful as a reference (and it does give some good links to other web resources), but not great for instruction.
You'll probably need to play around in Adobe Dreamweaver for a bit before picking this up, as learning from the coded examples given in the book is, in my opinion, the most effective way of learning.
Not a bad book, but didn't quite deliver the spoon-fed lesson I was hoping given the "For Dummies..." name.
The books are in general, well laid out and present their content in a structured logical manner and are clear and easy to follow. Key points, hints and potential pitfalls are highlighted by friendly little icons in the page borders and you get to work along with the book on a number of mini projects that will give you a good grounding in building web pages. There are links to all the software you could need for coding and there is a load more content available on a dedicated web page for the book you get to access as well.
You aren't going to come away as an expert after working through this, but you will be well on the way to putting together a half decent website which avoids many common errors and in my view, that is a great place to be starting off from.
But to really appreciate web design, it is useful to learn basic HTML and CSS. Armed with these tools, you can be more in control of your website and enable you to "tweak" your website so that it is exactly as you want it to be.
Beginning HTML5 and CSS3 For Dummies is a very good introduction to these concepts. The book explains clearly and as painlessly as possible how to build a website from scratch using just Notepad or a similar text editor. Like with other Dummies, the book is clearly set out, easy to follow, and packed with illustrations that aid understanding.
Be warned: learning HTML and CSS3 takes time and effort, but it is not as complicated as you might think. With the help of this book, you can grasp the basics without too much of a problem. It is probably the best introduction to website building that I have encountered.
