As you'd expect, you'll learn the basics of the HTML and the XHTML for creating your web page content, and CSS for styling it so that it looks nice.
The information is presented logically, with the very basic HTML tags sections leading into material on the more strict XHTML. CSS is introduced as the final major piece of the puzzle, with some slightly more advanced topics: divs, spans, positioning to round off the book. (The contents page is available - go take a look).
Don't be fooled into thinking this book will turn you into an HTML/XHTML/CSS guru - you'll still have a long journey ahead for that. Also, the emergence of HTML5 and libraries like JQuery mean that you've even further to travel. However, if you're looking for a solid grounding to kick-start you into web site building - you couldn't find a much better book.
All in all, if you get on with the Head First way of teaching and want an introduction to (X)HTML/CSS - buy the book.
It then goes about setting easy to follow, and interesting examples, so that you are always kept captivated. It is one of those rare text books that seems to come to life, and where almost forget that you're actually reading a text book!
Great work guys; although I've never bought a Head first book, I will most definitely look out for them in the future.
Excellent beginners book on HTML and CSS
This is my first Head First book. The quirky style helps to get the information into your head and the numerous worked examples give confidence and a reluctance to stop at just ordinary, when extraordinary is not much further along. Top marks!
I would recommend this book to anyone who hasn't got any experience at all of web design, and to someone who's got a rough idea and has done a bit of it. Anyone with better knowledge and experience will probably this the book is good - but too basic and simple.
Use this book as your learning tool to understanding and starting web design, after you've read it you'll find it easy to advance and gain more experience.
