I was always under the impression that learning HTML was difficult and you had to be a computer programer to even begin to understand the code until I picked up this book. I examined this particular book and compared it to a famous brand DIY book. This HTML, XHTML & CSS book was easier to understand and straight to the point. I created my website using a Yahoo template because I figured all I had to do was type information in the desiginated boxes. I found out that's all I could do, was type. I couldn't bold, center, underline, or create links with this particular template, program, or whatever you want to call it, without knowing HTML. This book saved the day for me. I highly recommend it.

    Awesome way to learn how to make web sites!!!!!!!!!

    If you want to learn HTML and CSS to make web sites, this is the best way to go. This book is really easy to understand, it has great images so you can see what you're learning. I knew nothing about web design and I learned so much through this book! I highly recommend it!

    A must have for any Java Servlet or Web developer

    If you only have one book for your HTML and CSS reference, this is the one to have. I have thie one and the 4th edition, which gives a little more detail on CGI.<BR/><BR/>This is a technical book packed with information, but if you are just curious about the web, start here. Load up Tomcat 5.5 and have some fun.

    Great Books

    Years ago when I first got into HTML I purchased many books that almost made it impossible to learn until I ran into HTML by Elizabeth Castro. Since then when I wanted to learn something new I always purchased her books or books from Peachpit Press because they publish books that are easy to read and learn. Buy one of their books and you also will look to Peachpit for easy to learn books.

    Outstanding book on HTML

    A little experience with the on-line HTML tutorials gets you started.
    Then this book helps you take off !! Very well done. The text discusses the solution or the how-tos and the code is near by so one can see how it's done in HTML code.
