Amazon Review

In the Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating a Web Page, the author does a fair job of covering the subject in a friendly, engaging tone. One of the charms of the Web is that just about anyone can (and does) create a Web page. "It's cinchy," they tell you. And they're right. But it always helps to have a book handy to help you with some of the not-so-cinchy parts. And it amazes me how many Web design or publishing books just don't get it. Fortunately, this isn't one of those books.

. Yes, this book has life to it. There is a personality. The humour isn't forced or condescending. Paul covers a lot of ground quickly and I had to remind myself that Idiot's Guides, like Dummies books, are references. So where I thought some things were skipped over quickly, the truth is that as a reference the book works well. (True beginners who need handholding and tutorials should turn elsewhere.)

The book's scope is vast. It goes into style sheets, JavaScript, and certain advanced options that help round out the Web page experience. It also covers my hot-button issue of FTP. Without FTP you just can't publish your Web page on the Internet, and I'm embarrassed for the many book authors who don't include such vital information in their Web publishing books. Fortunately, it's covered here and covered well.

I suppose I could gripe that the book doesn't cover XML, an advanced topic for Web page creation, and one that I've yet to see a decent book on, anyway. That's a minor quibble though; as far as I'm concerned. No, for basic Web page creation and publication, you really can't beat this book. --Dan Gookin


The Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating an HTML Web Page, Fourth Edition, provides you with the tools you need to create and customize your Web pages. A careful, step-by-step approach enables you to build and publish your first Web page. With the basics in place, you are slowly introduced to more advanced concepts such as tables, forms, frames, and style sheets. Many examples illustrate each new concept, and you are encouraged to use and build upon these examples. Many new Web page concepts are covered, including XML, style sheets and JavaScript programs.
