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.

Meet the Author

Bill Kennedy has a Ph.D. in biophysics from Loyola University of Chicago. Currently, he is president and chief technical officer of ActivMedia, Inc., a new media marketing and marketing research company based in Peterborough, NH. Bill also promotes a line of mobile, autonomous robots as real-world platforms for artificial intelligence and fuzzy logic research and for education. He frequently writes for IDG's SunWorld/Advanced Systems Magazine (now SunWorld Online), where he served as a senior editor-features for nearly five years.

Chuck Musciano earned his B.S. in computer science from Georgia Tech in 1982. Since then, he has resided in Melbourne, Florida, in the employ of Harris Corporation. 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. This led to a prolonged interest in user-interface research and development, which finally gave way to his current position, manager of UNIX Systems in Harris' Corporate Data Center. 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. Chuck has written on UNIX-related topics in the trade press for the past decade, most visibly as the "Webmaster" columnist for Sunworld Online.
