Overview

Build Your Own Website The Right Way Using HTML & CSS, 2nd Edition teaches web development from scratch, without assuming any previous knowledge of HTML, CSS or web development techniques. This book introduces you to HTML and CSS as you follow along with the author, step-by-step, to build a fully functional web site from the ground up.

However, unlike countless other "learn web design" books, this title concentrates on modern, best-practice techniques from the very beginning, which means you'll get it right the first time. The web sites you'll build will:

  • Look good on a PC, Mac or Linux computer
  • Render correctly whether your visitors are using Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, or Safari
  • Use web standards so your sites will be fast loading and easy to maintain
  • Be accessible to disabled users who use screenreaders to browse the Web

By the end of the book, you'll be equipped with enough knowledge to set out on your first projects as a professional web developer, or you can simply use the knowledge you've gained to create attractive, functional, usable and accessible sites for personal use.

Developers follow along with the author, step-by-step, in building a fully functional Web site with this guide that does not assume previous knowledge of HTML, CSS or Web Development techniques. Readers will learn to apply Web Standards to build Web sites that are usable, fast-loading, cross-browser compatible and accessible to disabled users.

    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.
