I loved this book! It was a great help for me as an amateur getting back into web design after a five year gap. The section on HTML was clear and the tutorials were easy to follow. The introduction to CSS was outstanding. (As for the errors, the large majority were in urls and references, and were not critical at all to understanding the text or exercises. ) I would recommend this to anybody who wants to step in and learn the nuts and bolts of design with html and CSS.

Highly, highly recommended
I was very impressed with this book, as it provides an excellent introduction to a standards-based approach for creating web sites. Developers or designers who are new to writing HTML, or individuals who are simply looking for a refresher book should look no further. The author takes the reader through the whole process of creating a web site: from HTML, to adding style elements, to basic graphics considerations, to more advanced topics. This is a very well thought out, thorough book. Frankly, I was surprised at the depth of material included in this book. In addition to an excellent CSS reference, the author goes into more advanced topics, including the CSS box model, what exactly is Unicode, and even how to create web graphics. The addition of this extra material will satisfy advanced readers, but also give beginning HTML coders something to work up towards. In other words, once you cover the basic material of this book, there¿s still more material for you to learn. If I had my way, I¿d make this book required reading for all web developers. This is a great addition to any web developer¿s library. Even those who already have a lot of experience with creating web sites¿you might learn something.Was this review helpful?
