HTML texts from other academic publishers treat HTML in a step-by-step cookbook fashion, as though it were a simple software application, limiting the amount of material and concepts covered. Unique in the marketplace, Gottleber and Trainor’s Even More Excellent HTML combines the pedagogical support of academic texts with the comprehensive coverage found in trade books. No previous knowledge of HTML or Web design is assumed.

    Ok book with unclear instructions

    I had to use this book for my Web Dev. class. It has typos in it, which makes it dificult for the beginer to figure out. This is the first HTML book I have read and it's ok I guess, only because I cannot comapre it to any other books. However, the instructions are not 'step by step' they are somewhat 'implied instructions' so you must figure out what what it's trying to ask you to do. It has gotten me very frustrated at times because they do not tell/show you where or how to begin.
