Highly recommended for beginners who are prepared to stick with it. Believe me, I wanted the easy route in web design and it took me much longer to get nowhere.
This is a wonderful book which I wholeheartedly recommend above all others as the first step on the way to learning web design. It is written very clearly in a step-by-step fashion which allows you to build on what you have just learned, and the resulting project web site is much more complete and impressive than I expected it to be.
The dialogue is very friendly and humorous at times and I felt that the author was really guiding me through the exercises. This made the book incredibly enjoyable to work through and I found that time passed by very quickly without studying feeling like a chore at all. The material from the supporting web site along with the suggested web links for further information were also fantastic.
I am very impressed by the author's obvious dedication to encouraging new web designers to follow web standards and to avoid learning bad habits. He is also keen to raise awareness of cross browser and accessibility issues.
I have learned much more than I expected from this book and am now much more confident with understanding and using code. It has also shown me that you don't need to invest loads of money on a WYSIWYG program to make a good web site; a simple text editor will do!
I decided that there must be an easier way of using the code behind dreamweaver to make things run a little easier. This book explains it all.
It takes you from the very begining from opening notepad and saving a file as a webpage right through to linking pages and appling different fonts in just the first 3 chapters. It covers every detail in such detail but still manages to inject a little humour. The sample project is first class and the downloadable code section is easy to find and use.
I have never written a review before but this book is so good i feel it warrants 5 stars. You need to buy this book if you want to learn about websites.
