5.0 out of 5 stars Web Publishing with HTML and CSS, 12 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Sams Teach Yourself Web Publishing with HTML and CSS in One Hour a Day: Includes New HTML5 Coverage (Sams Teach Yourself...in One Hour) (Paperback)
I bought this book having no previous experience of writing HTML code. My initial intent was to quickly read relevant sections and gain sufficient knowledge to understand how to read the code behind already written web pages !!. I have to say this book definitely allowed me to do that.
I had previously sourced a domain name through one of the major Web hosting companies which also provided many Free sets of software that I then used to construct my Web site. The free software I used was sufficiently sophisticated to allow me to construct my site using mainly a WYSIWYG font page (in theory NOT needing any HTML understanding). I did however manage to construct an acceptable Web site, (learning on the job so to speak !!, and having the help of online video pages. The software package I used also allowed me the option to view and change the written code behind each of the screens. (Getting back to why I purchased this book !).
I can say that the book has been a real "eye opener" into how best to use HTML, but also how to link it, and make use of other code i.e. CSS. I have ended up reading all of the chapters, (nearly in the order as written), VERY WELL SET OUT ! and relatively easy to understand !. Also I wish I had waited until I had read the book before starting with the Web construction. I have recently obtained a copy of Adobe "Dreamweaver" and am currently re-hashing my site.
Although Dreamweaver is a professional site and is now making Web building much easier, having the ability to understand the use of HTML code is proving to be very beneficial.

In conclusion a must read book, very well set out, does what is says on the tin !!
