  • 5 starsCannot recommend it more strongly

    If you're *just* starting out learning HTML, you cannot do better than this book. It explains in very simple (and color-illustrated) terms how basic HTML works. Images, text, forms, sound and video, publishing and frames are covered. Everything you need. The two aspects I found most helpful were the color chart of hexidecimal codes and the section on cascading style sheets. The information in this book I keep finding over and over in 'higher-level' books, which often explain it much more poorly.

    If you are just starting out creating your web pages and like your information clearly explained, this book is what you're looking for.

  • 5 starsVisually Exciting

    This invaluable instruction manual breaks down web page design to its simplest form, and teaches how to harness the power and versatility of HTML to generate attractive looking web pages. The impression of having a private 'tutor' guiding you each step of the way is created through the step-by-step visual approach, seeing that you can emulate the exact procedures outlined without any apprehension, and then view the final result in a browser to measure your progress.

    Each procedure is conveyed in a logical sequence beginning with the basic concepts and proceeding to more advanced themes, so that learning HTML becomes effortless. This method of visually imparting knowledge eliminates the problem of having to leaf through several pages to find the screen shot that relates to the instructions, along with the frustration of having to re-read the same paragraph many times in order to grasp the main point.

    There is a detachable page at the beginning of the book containing a hexadecimal value colour chart with sample colours that can be applied to enhance the appearance of a page, and for easy reference, a comprehensive summary of all the HTML tags used in the course and their functions are given at the end of the book. In addition to the basic HTML tags, this impressive book also covers such areas as resizing images, creating tables, frames, adding sound and video, image maps, java applets and many more features that will allow you to easily create and publish professional looking web pages.

    This pictorial, self-teaching 'tutor' is just what any beginner or advanced student needs to benefit from the exciting domain of web page design.

  • 5 starsA bright, shiny gem

    A truly amazing book that I keep coming back to. Unparalleled clarity of instructions, without being dry or assuming too much existing knowledge. A colorful, visual feast that makes learning about and coding HTML a near-effortless pleasure.

    If only all computing books were so well laid out and presented.
