The best html guide I have come across!
on 28 October 2003
To begin with I was a little dawnted by the huge index page and all the unrecognisable jargon.
I was vaguely familiar with html and web design before I bought this book and found the structure suited my capabilities.
The book starts by introducing the easier techniques and running through to the more difficult html and xhtml. This structure would allow novices through to more accomplished web designers to pick the book up at the level necessary.
I have read the book through twice and have been able to grasp all of the methods due to the excellent layout of the pages. Each html technique has a clearly defined heading, a description of the technique, the relevant html code layed out as you would in your web design package and finally the finished page to give you an ideology of pages you can design through this book.
Although I now consider myself to be quite competant with html, the HTML for the World Wide Web with XHTML and CSS: Visual QuickStart Guide is never far away. Due to the books extensive guide and glossary it is ideal to be used as a reference source.
This book is excellent for learning html and since I have progressed to other similar guides for dhtml and believe this series has a winning formula for learning web design
