    Excellent broad-spectrum perspective for first-time site builders.

    If you are thinking-of or just-starting the building of a web site for personal or professional use, and have little direct experience, check this book out.

    There are a daunting number of aspects to building and maintaining successful sites, and most books focus on one tool or another (e.g. Dreamweaver). Sorry, but the design tool is not all you need to know.

    To date, this is the best book for coverage of the big technical picture I've found (it will /not/ make you a marketing genius), with enough detail to send you into specialty areas (design tools, hosting, search engines, etc.) with some decent foundational knowledge.

    A great starting-off point, and more (and yes, with some errors... like every book of this density).

    Lots of info, but lots of errors

    As of this review, I was on Chapter four. I have very little experience with HTML.<BR/><BR/>There seems to be a lot of info packed into this book, but also a lot of errors and typos.<BR/><BR/>The first tutorial web page they walk a person through on pages 114 / 115 has so many errors that it will not look anything like the finsihed prouduct on page 116. <BR/><BR/>I wasted a lot of time attempting to figure out what the errors were, having to search other sections of the book for the proper code elements. THEN I had to play with the code elelments to learn that the first example cannot be done the way they presented it!<BR/><BR/>The first tutorial shows this for aligning a headline center:<BR/><BR/><p align"center""> <h3>Making Kimchi using an ordered list<h3><p><BR/><BR/>This does not work. It must look like this:<BR/><BR/><h3 align="center"> Making Kimchi using an order list</h3><BR/><BR/>The most frequently missing item is the forward slash / that is supposed to be at the end of nearly all HTML tags, according to the authors! They even say "If your screen differes in appearance slightly, don't worry about it."<BR/><BR/>WHAT GOOD IS A TUTORIAL IF MINE DOES NOT LOOK LIKE THE EXAMPLE?!<BR/><BR/>Just be prepared to have to figure stuff out on your own.
