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
