1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Morten Bengtson (bengtson@post6.tele.dk) on 28 Sept. 2001
Format: Paperback
This is the best book on HTML I have ever red.
It teaches you all you need to know and answers all of your questions. How? why? where? and when?
Instead of buying small and cheap books - buy a book that is worth the money. You will not regret it.
When you have red it a few times, you can use it as reference.
I now feel that I can master HTML and CSS good enough to move on. That is why I have just ordered Special Edition Using Javascript, hoping that it is just as good.

Molly Holzschlag's Special Edition HTML 4.0 is an excellent comprehensive look at web technology. What is not mentioned in the publisher's description is the chapter "Developing the Corporate Intranet."
The chapter is great for IT managers, administrators or new web programmers. It offers in plain English a description of how web technology works with legacy systems to transform existing data into useful, new information systems fairly rapidly.
"Developing the Corporate Intranet" is basically a case study with nuts-and-bolts description of how one medical facility utilized their Intranet and web applications for decision support, which resulted in enormous client satisfaction and further funds for Intranet development. It is detailed and readable, with interviews, screen shots and references.
This chapter is especially useful for hospital IT departments and administrators long lacking strong health care Intranet white papers and web application examples.
As contributing author, feel free to contact me at above e-mail address for more information on the case study or Intranet development in general. --Chris Hawkins

By A Customer on 11 Feb. 1999
Format: Paperback
I expected to find more in depth coverage of HTML and other technical topics than this book actually covers. The book covers a broad range of topics, from basic HTML to JavaScript, XML, site design, graphics, maintenance and marketing. If you're looking for a book that covers a lot of topics in one volume, this has a good, up to date coverage that's more on the surface. There's even a whole section (5 chapters) on multimedia and embedded objects. I would recommend it as something to pick up and read about something you're interested in or to get an overview of some new technologies. For more in-depth coverage of just HTML or any one of the other topics covered, I would recommend you look for a different book or consider this one as a supplementary resource.
Molly Holzschlag has a nice no-nonsense writing style that I like - I highly recommend her "Web by Design" book if you are looking for something that emphasizes design topics.

By A Customer on 13 July 1999
Format: Paperback
I read this book from cover to cover. After reading this book you will know: Basic HTML. How to use CSS. What is XML, VRML, DHTML, CGI...(major web technologies). How to desing Web sites. How to publish you Web site to the Web. You won't know: Advanced HTML. How to make forms. You will have: A great reference to HTML 4 and CCS.(The most valuable part of the book, about 200 pages.) A CD with many shareware programs mentioned in the book. This book is simply too thick. By reading it, you can see how the author tries to make it longer. If you need a good HTML 4 reference, buy it. If you want learn a lot of HTML, pick another book. If you got all those little questions about the computer screen, resolution, browsers, colors, graphic files, scanning for the web, if you want to make your Web site look good on as many platforms and browsers as possible, buy this book.

This book explains from the basics of HTML upwards, always keeping a practical viewpoint on the extent to which HTML 4.0 can be implemented with current browsers. It also does a very good job of explaining graphic design issues.
The author covers CSS and touches on Javascript, CGI, ASP, and Java which acts as a good primer for those who want to learn more (like me!). Molly Holzschlag has a good style which explains things well without beating around the bush (see HTML 4.0 for Dummies if that's what you want!)

By A Customer on 2 Mar. 1999
Format: Paperback
An absolutely fantastic, must-have reference. Perfect for the budding amateur who knows a fair bit but not all. A simple, accessable tag guide towards the back of the book along with the detailed insight which is easy to find. Sometimes you wish it would stay on one subject longer but there probably wasn't room. Also there is a brief but helpful guide to some of the more complicated sides of web design including CGI and XML.
