4.0 out of 5 stars Good All-Around Resource, 11 Feb 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Using HTML 4: Special Edition (Special Edition Using) (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.
