Book Description

Nov. 8 2011
A full-color introduction to the basics of HTML and CSS from the publishers of Wrox! 

Every day, more and more people want to learn some HTML and CSS. Joining the professional web designers and programmers are new audiences who need to know a little bit of code at work (update a content management system or e-commerce store) and those who want to make their personal blogs more attractive. Many books teaching HTML and CSS are dry and only written for those who want to become programmers, which is why this book takes an entirely new approach.

  • Introduces HTML and CSS in a way that makes them accessible to everyone—hobbyists, students, and professionals—and it’s full-color throughout
  • Utilizes information graphics and lifestyle photography to explain the topics in a simple way that is engaging
  • Boasts a unique structure that allows you to progress through the chapters from beginning to end or just dip into topics of particular interest at your leisure

This educational book is one that you will enjoy picking up, reading, then referring back to. It will make you wish other technical topics were presented in such a simple, attractive and engaging way!

This book is also available as part of a set in hardcover - Web Design with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery, 9781119038634; and in softcover - Web Design with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery, 9781118907443.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredibly simple Nov. 4 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is clear and simple, the best book to introduce the world of HTML and CSS. And by far the most beautiful graphic grid for a programming book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for beginners... June 3 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is great. It walks you through things slowly and visually. It shows you how things interact and how to make things work for you. It is basic to start, but moves onto more advanced topics. Just what I needed to get that kick in the butt to get coding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I wanted! Dec 8 2013
By Cody
I am completely new to web design and finding a great all in one solution for the basics was harder than I thought. This book is perfect for beginners! It teaches is HTML5 and CSS3 while giving examples of older versions of HTML and CSS and gives advice on what to avoid doing when designing.

2.0 out of 5 stars Desapointed July 17 2014
It covers very basic HTML and CSS. If you know NOTHING about HTML and CSS that a great book.
But if you have at least medium HTML/CSS skills, there is very few to learn about this book.
I would not recommend it

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful book and good content May 28 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
First of all, the design of this book is amazing. I bought the hardcover and it has a nice feel to it. The inside is beautifully colorful filled with amazing quality pictures.

Aside from that, the books content is good as well. It was almost a little bit to basic for me, but I bought this book already with a solid foundation of both HTML and CSS. I was still able to learn some new things. This book is amazing for beginners.

5.0 out of 5 stars if you are more 'designer' than 'web' May 12 2014
By Fly
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are a visual learner, and need things spelled out really clearly - this is the book for you. This does not mean 'dummy' just that you might be venturing tentatively into new field, or wanting to build your own website before going back to the main part of your day job. Turns out that HTML is rather fun - who knew?

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't put it down April 29 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I was always interested of knowing how to do a website and find out what and how to use html. Well this book is so interesting to read and like the author said it is very easy to understand.
At my ripe old age of 57 I love it.
