No matter what your level of HTML expertise is, the updated version of this book will keep you challenged, focused, and looking forward to the next chapter. This second edition of HTML Complete covers all of the bases and is loaded with examples that range from planning and designing Web pages to a brief introduction to XHTML.
Published by Sybex primarily as a compilation of many of the publisher's Web authors, this truly is a jam-packed, thousand-page "how-to" book. As the title suggests, it contains in-depth coverage of topics from the basic HTML platform to more exciting subjects like Dynamic HTML (DHTML), Active Server Pages (ASP), and cascading style sheets (CSS). It even includes a section on customizing Windows 98 by using HTML. No-nonsense exercises, tips, notes, and warnings for beginners fill the pages. For the more experienced HTML user, the Master's Reference appendix provides a wealth of information that will be useful as a one-stop reference.
This title enables users of all stripes to design and employ current and emerging Web technologies in the right way, while serving also as a solid reference. The reference component of HTML Complete will translate into a longer shelf life than your run-of-the-mill book on HTML. --Stephen W. Plain
