    Awesome, Outsanding Book

    This is a superb book, it is chock full of wonderful tidbits of information. HTML is not a complex data format yet, this book fills one-thousand pages of information on the subject. It also gives information on advance topics and new technology and technology still in development. Yet, the book gets better the whole Appendix could be a book in itself, it contain every tag that I have seen documented anywhere. This book is the ultimate resource on HTML out there, from beginner to expert.

    Outstanding!!!!!!!!!!

    HTML Complete is probably the best book on HTML. This book guide you from designing your web page until making your web page interactive. It also tells us a little bit about CSS, XML, XHTML, Perl & CGI, JavaSript, and DHTML. At the end there's the master reference, which includes every single tag. I highly recommended this book for those who wants to learn HTML and making web page.

    An Outstanding Guide for Web Designers

    This review covers the second edition of HTML complete. Any other version you may have seen is probably the first edition. To start, in my opinion, HTML is not something you would need to read a book about to learn the inner most depths of the language. One could easily run a search on 'HTML' and find many excellent tutorials, and that's all they would need to learn the language. After learning HTML from a few web sites, I bought this book partially to learn what a book has to offer concerning HTML and to see how over 1000 pages could cover something as simple as HTML. I was surprised after reading the first 100 or so pages. This book not only covers everything you would need to know concerning HTML tags, but a thorough (and quite exhausting) dive into web design. HTML can be learned in an hour or two but learning good web design can take weeks. This explained in an easy to understand fashion how to go about developing an idea for a web page, creating the web page, and updating the web page. For anyone baffled about how they would actually publish a web page, this professionally explains how to do so. One thing I disliked about this book is that it is very repetitive. You will learn how to create links, images, and basic formatting in one chapter and review how to do so a few chapters later. With the web design techniques, the tips can be repetitive as well. It is for this reason that most of the time, you will want to skim over the chapters and stop to read finer points here and there. The repetitiveness, I believe, is one factor that makes this book unnecessarily large. Another thing is that I believe the book could have elaborated a bit more on the section discussing cascading style sheets, as it is very brief. Then again, CSS is a completely different language. I especially enjoyed the excellent web design techniques presented throughout the book, including optimizations for images, optimizations for Explorer and Navigator, and such things as the pros and cons of including music in your web pages, which I think is important for a serious designer to know. The book is divided into four sections, and the last is a brief introduction to other fine programming languages, such as Perl and JavaScript. The explanations of the pros and cons of each language are superb, and each explanation will even start you off with a tiny bit of knowledge of each language that will make you want to learn the entire language. I was amazed at the heavy emphasis on the greatness of Perl. Their reasons for learning Perl were so convincing that I immediately looked into a few web tutorials to see what Perl was really about! Overall, buy this book if you are a web designer who would like excellent advice on building great web pages. If you simply want to learn the language HTML just for the sake of learning it, then don't bother with this book. Read some web tutorials or buy a shorter book than this.
