Product Description

From the Back Cover

As both the Web and the browsers used to navigate it mature, work-arounds that compensate for the myriad factors that affect Web page appearance no longer cut it. Users expect Web pages to look beautiful regardless--and with the Fifth Edition of this popular Visual QuickStart Guide, you can make your Web pages comply. By following the generously illustrated, step-by-step instructions that are the hallmark of the Visual QuickStart series, you'll create beautiful code that works consistently across browser versions and platforms (including hand-held devices and cell phones) in no time.

This updated edition includes a new section on foreign-language and multilingual Web sites as well as ample coverage on how the use of HTML is changing. What hasn't changed, however, is the book's popular format: Task-oriented, step-by-step instruction that builds on your growing knowledge. Info-packed appendixes, a comprehensive index, and plenty of screen shots and code examples make HTML for the World Wide Web, Fifth Edition, with XHTML and CSS: Visual QuickStart Guide a must-have reference. Whether you're just getting your feet wet (no prior HTML knowledge is required) or design Web sites for a living, you'll turn to this best-selling guide again and again for answers to all of your HTML-related questions.

This Student Edition includes end-of-chapter exercises and instructor resources.

Good Introduction. July 16 2006
By A.G.West - Published on Amazon.com
If you want to understand the basics of (X)HTML this book is for you. By the end you should feel confident in creating a simple website.

The book avoids using lengthy explanations; it uses a show the code and look at the result approach. There are tons of pictures to help make understanding easy, too. All examples can be find on her website as well.

Why only four stars? Some lengthy explanations were necessary. One, for example, was how to neatly structure the source code. She didn't cover this much at all; and any programmer will tell you how important orderly code is. Two, I felt she should of went into CSS more deeply as she kept saying this is becoming the standard way to do things. She does spend time on it but not enough.

Overall I highly recommend the book. The instructions are clear so that you can teach yourself. The book works great for reference as well.

NOTE: Her website[...] says there is a 6th edition coming soon.
