Format: Paperback
I bought this book as a complete novice to HTML and thought it would be great because of the unpatronising way it was written and the progress checks throughout. It started off good but when I was getting through module 2 I started to notice coding errors in the examples which I thought was unacceptable for something that needs to be SO precise. Then I got to the mastery check at the end of module 2 and noticed that the answers to question 9 didn't match the original question! I'm very disappointed as I was enjoying working through the book but I don't want to continue and waste my time with more careless errors. I would recommend researching other titles where the proofreader isn't so lazy.

I am really disappointed with this book. Different aspects of HTML are broken down into modules which is good, but the content is contradictory and confusing.
There are entire sections devoted to Tables and Frames which the author then seems to dimiss as obselete, steering the reader to CSS (style sheets). Why have those topics in the book? The CSS are not adequately explained and there are constant references to code elements throughout the modules but no clear indication as to where they should be placed. And some code which I enter, following the examples to the letter, simply does not work.

Best avoided.

4.0 out of 5 stars good beginner's book 27 Feb. 2008
By clue - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
this book was a good beginner's html book. if you're coming from a programming background though, you'll be able to tell that it was not written by a programmer (which she herself admits to). but that's okay, since you end up learning the subject material anyway.

i had to subtract a star because there were some misstatements (e.g. writing 'attribute' instead of 'property') and quite a few code mistakes, as another reviewer pointed out.

i don't agree with the 2 star reviews. this book is a lot better than that.
2.0 out of 5 stars Do not buy the Kindle version 7 April 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
if you are looking to learn some HTML please do not buy this on your ereader ( kindl e or other) its way better get it in real paper, but even thsi way the book isnt the awesome, to easy to undestand but lacking in exemple for you reproduce. The book spend to much time in B.S explanation and on the history of HTML so if you trying learn HTML so bad look for another tittle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Help 11 Jan. 2007
By A. Zacchini - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Having no knowledge of code, this book was great. I created my whole site with code...rather than having dreamweaver create it for me! I would recommend it to anyone just learning about website creation.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Bit Spotty -- Here's Why 3 Mar. 2008
By I Survived High School - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I was facing HTML issues like making banners, adding code to pages made on templates and embedding video files in my blog, so I bought this book.

You'd think all those things would be in it, but only the third is. The word "banners" isn't even in the index. Neither is "templates."

These are very "now" issues for people like me. I strongly recommend the next edition be more thorough.

CSS is also invoked more frequently than it is explained. This needs work.

I do not wish to discourage the author. I just think the next volume could improve over this one in key ways.

I also do not care for the use of the author's favorite camp and school for all the examples. I admire her enthusiasm but found it tedious. I suspect most people would not be bothered, however.

Issues pertaining to blogs could be expanded.

For me, a three star book. Useful, but I'll have to buy supplements.
