Overview

The total number of web pages has been estimated at well over three billion, and most of them are based on HTML, one of the core building blocks of the Internet. Anyone designing web pages, from beginning to advanced designers, needs to be proficient in its usage. This classic O'Reilly bestseller covers every element of HTML & XHTML in detail, explaining how each element works and how it interacts with other elements. With hundreds of examples, this book shows you how to create effective web pages, how to master advanced features like Cascading Style Sheets, and how to take effluent out of the popular WYSIWYG tools like Frontpage and Dreamweaver.

The latest edition of "HTML & XHTML The Definitive Guide" is updated to cover Internet Explorer 7, Firefox 1.5, HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.0, CSS2, and a preview of XHTML2 and CSS3. One of the real value-added features of the book's "Definitive Guide" format is a comparison of which technologies the various browsers support and which aren't, with particular emphasis on differences in the way the browsers handle certain tags and/or attributes. This edition includes a review of the newer initiatives in XHTML (XForms, XFrames, and modularization), and covers the essentials on XML for advanced readers. With more than 380,000 copies sold, this landmark Definitive Guide has firmly established itself as the front running book in the HTML category, because it functions as both a solid tutorial and a comprehensive reference.

He began his career as a compiler writer and crafter of tools and went on to join Harris' Advanced Technology Group to help develop large-scale multiprocessors.

Along the way, he contributed a number of publicly available tools to the Internet and started the still-running Internet Movie Ratings Report. He has been running various Web sites within and without Harris for several years.
