Overview

This sequel retains the clear, succinct and easy-to-read format that made its predecessor a bestseller.

Packed with examples and screen-captures which illustrate how HTML pages actually look on different browsers.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Familiar with HTML but itching for more information? The nine chapters and four appendixes that make up this book may be for you. Readers proceed from a quick survey of HTML basics in the first chapter to a collection of six actual examples of complex sites in the last. HTML elements, Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), CGI and the HTTP protocol, HTML editors, Web browsers, and HTTP servers are all treated in turn. There are abundant pointers to Internet-based resources to use in conjunction with examples and explanations. Graham maintains a simple philosophy throughout: keep your home page small, concise, and unburdened with enormous files (graphics and others). Many examples scattered in the text, such as those for bad links, are well worth review for both their intellectual and entertainment value. For HTML sophisticates, The HTML Sourcebook will fill in gaps in your expertise and point you in new directions as you design your Internet facades.
