Overview

The author of the best-selling Web Design in a Nutshell, Jennifer Niederst, delivers a concise guide to every HTML tag in this pocket reference.

Each tag entry includes:

  • Detailed information on the tag's attributes
  • Browser support information, including Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Opera, and WebTV
  • HTML 4.0 support information, including whether the tag is deprecated in the current spec

In addition to tag-by-tag descriptions, the book also includes several useful charts, including:

  • Character entities
  • Decimal-to-hexadecimal conversions
  • Color names

Niederst also provides context for the tags, indicating which tags are grouped together and bare-bones examples of how standard Web page elements are constructed.

This pocket reference is targeted at Web designers and Web authors and is likely to be the most dog-eared book on every Web professional's desk.
