Format: Paperback
I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn to design their own website starting totally from scratch.

This books takes you step-by-step from a blank page to a full website - complete with contact form, image gallery, links etc - with every single part explained in plain language and with absolutely no presumptions of prior knowledge. The language that web pages are written in (HTML) as well as the style sheets that control how they are formatted (CSS) are explained simply and gradually. The book leads the reader through the construction of a sample website - for a fictional diving club - so as you learn each new skill, you can apply it to the website. The author provides suggestions for free software when required, as well as details of more advanced software that can be purchased, and also recommends further reading at various points for those interested. He has preempted potential confusion and mistakes by providing extra clarification at points, and writes with goofy humour as well as refreshing clarity. The last chapters contain some advice about adding to your website - blogs, search functions, page statistics - as well as suggestions for further learning.

Thanks to this book, I've completed the sample website (extremely proud of myself) and have started building a personal website where I can apply my new skills and a bit of creativity. I can see why people with I.T. experience or previous web design skills would find this book unhelpful, but as a book for beginners it's absolutely perfect.

If you have been thinking about writing a website but are terrified about it, then buy this book. In fact, buy this book if you are only mildly concerned about writing a website. It is worth its weight in gold!
I bought this a couple of weeks ago and now have a fully-functioning site, all written using nothing more than this book and Notepad - no fancy programmes or anything. I had struggled with a couple of wysiwyg programmes beforehand and never understood what on earth I was doing. This book teaches from the ground up, explains the 'whats' and 'whys' and lets you feel confident you can do it.
Buy it!

Format: Paperback
This book is brilliant! it is structured, well written in that the complexities of HTML and CSS are made to look easy.Its hands-on ,you build a website with multiple pages ,images etc,etc using the power of CSS. I could not wait to pick up the book at any spare moment and procede patiently through the chapters, whilst building a website which continued to amaze me .I had tried the free tutorials on the web ,but this seemed to confuse me more than tutor me ,this book is a must and excellent value for money. I must add that I am 67 this year so ,if any other wrinklies want to learn web design this is the way. Thank YOU Ian Lloyd.

I have been producing web sites for a number of years and decided I had to start incorporating CSS, primarily for ease of updating the style and positioning of elements on the page by just attaching a new CSS sheet. This book really gives you a clear understanding of how this all works and introduces you to best practice right from the start. I really enjoyed the way the Author demonstrates this by designing a fictitious website from start to finish. Reading the book really left me wanting to know everything about CSS - I have now ordered The CSS Anthology: 101 Essential Tips, Tricks & Hacks 3rd Edition which is due out next month.

I bought this after purchasing MS Expression Studio Student edition. It is a superb book where you work through it building an actual website as your project. Everything is clearly explained and the why's and why not's are there too. Only HTML and CSS that is W3C validated is taught ensuring that your site is right from the very start. My wife is getting bored by my constant statements of 'this book is really fantastic because..........'. I would definately recommend buying this book if you are new to web design or you want to design websites correctly.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a really basic book for people who never used (or never seen) HTML. E.g. chapter 1 is about browsers - now who doesn't know what a browser is? Either way, the book has just over 400 pages, but it could easily be cut down to at least 200. The text is large, and it doesn't contain as much stuff as I'd hoped for. It says build websites the right way - but it should say build websites the basic way. Would NOT recommend this book to any one who has basic understanding of/ used HTML before as you will not learn much. If you're a beginner & have no knowledge of html at all/you're unable to understand the code, then this book is right for you.

Format: Paperback
Having attempted a few web sites in the past and failed, this book has seen me learn more about HTML and CSS in a few hours than the last 10 years.

The pace is just right for anyone with a moderate amount of programming experience (as I have) and you can quickly pick up the basics. If you have no programming experience, it will take a bit longer, but this is still an ideal book.

It also contains useful info on manipulating images, setting up your domain and creating a blog, and encourages good coding practise.

All in all a very good starter for ten!
