    Very Recommended

    I currently own three websites, and have used Mr. Lloyd's guidance to build each one. He really does a nice job explaining the essentials of good website construction, and I highly recommend the book for anyone just starting out. The only thing I found to be missing was a clear discussion on web hosting, and the appropriate criteria for choosing a good web host. If you are looking for straightforward instruction on that topic, I would recommend Gold Alliance Group's ebook, Web Hosting Simplified, which I found by searching Google.

    perfect pick for the frustrated

    This book guides you through building a Web site and while increasing your capability, builds some confidence that you can actually create one that does not look primitive and actually works. It is a good choice for learning how, I only wish I had found it four or five books ago.

    Excellent beginning introduction to HTML and CSS

    In the ¿old days¿ of the web, it was acceptable to lay out your web page with tables, font tags, and other HTML tags that directly applied formatting. Doing this type of thing today brings scorn upon you, your children, and your children¿s children. The acceptable way to lay out a web page today is through SPAN and DIV tags. Style is applied through a cascading style sheet (CSS). This book provides an excellent introduction to the world of creating web pages and CSS. Aimed at people brand new to creating web pages, the author begins with a quick introduction to HTML¿but don¿t worry, the author tries to keep things fun and the jargon down to a minimum. After the introduction to HTML¿which, by the way, I found to be excellent for the beginner web designer¿the author leaps into how to add formatting/style to pages. Really, the next half of the book is dedicated to adding formatting to a web page (e.g. creating cascading style sheets). I felt the author did an excellent job justifying style sheets over direct formatting of elements in a page. After really covering what I consider to be the ¿meat¿ of the book, the author digresses into some other important, but not critical aspects of web development. Things like where to get web hosting, adding javascript to pages, and where to go from here are discussed. The discussions are certainly briefer and leave a lot unsaid, but that¿s not really what the book is supposed to focus on. I felt for what this book is¿an introduction to creating simple web pages with cascading style sheets¿it did an excellent job. This book will likely be too basic for experienced web developers who want to get their feet wet with cascading style sheets. However, for those who have little or no experience with creating web pages, this is a great way to get started.
