Overview

Netscape Navigator 4.0! Internet Explorer 4.0! HTML 3.2! JavaScript! Style sheets! Layers! HTML is changing so fast it's almost impossible to keep up with developments. How do you know what's real, and how do you use it? This book brings it all together for you. HTML: The Definitive Guide is the most comprehensive book available on HTML today. It covers the latest standard, HTML 3.2, and all of the features supported by every popular Web browser, including the latest editions of Netscape and Internet Explorer.

Learning HTML is like learning any new language, computer or human. Most students first immerse themselves in examples. Studying others is a natural way to learn, making learning easy and fun. Imitation can take you only so far, though. It's as easy to learn bad habits through imitation as it is to acquire good ones. The better way to become HTML-fluent is through a comprehensive reference that covers the language syntax, semantics, and variations in detail and helps you distinguish between good and bad usage.

HTML: The Definitive Guide helps you both ways: the authors cover every element of HTML in detail, explaining how each element works and how it interacts with other elements. Many hints about HTML style help you accomplish a variety of tasks, from simple online documentation to complex marketing and sales presentations. With hundreds of examples, the book gives you models for writing your own effective Web pages and mastering advanced features, like style sheets and frames.

HTML: The Definitive Guide shows you how to:

  • Use style sheets and layers to control a document's appearance
  • Create tables, from simple to complex
  • Use Netscape's frames to coordinate sets of documents
  • Design and build interactive forms
  • Insert images, sound files, video, applets, and JavaScript programs
  • Create dynamic documents with server-push and client-pull

A handy quick reference card listing HTML tags is included.

Meet the Author

Bill Kennedy is currently president and chief technical officer of ActivMedia, Inc., a new media marketing and marketing research company based in beautiful Peterborough, NH, but which conducts business with clients and associates from around the world primarily over the Internet (http://www.activmedia.com). When not hacking new HTML pages or writing about them, "Dr. Bill" (Ph.D. in biophysics from Loyola University of Chicago, of all things!) is out promoting a line of mobile, autonomous robots as real-world platforms for artificial intelligence and fuzzy logic research and for education (http://www.rwii.com). Or he's out drumming up writing assignments from his former colleagues at IDG's SunWorld/Advanced Systems Magazine (now SunWorld Online; http://www.sun.com), where he served as a senior editor-features (at-large over the Internet, of course) for nearly five years. Contact Dr. Bill directly at bkennedy@activmedia.com.

Chuck Musciano has spent his life on the East Coast, having spent time in Maryland, Georgia, and New Jersey before acquiring a 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 grew to know and love the Internet, having contributed a number of publicly available tools to the Net and started the still-running Internet Movie Ratings Report. The Web was a natural next step, and 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 (http://www.sun.com/sunworldonline). In his spare time he enjoys life in Florida with his wife Cindy, daughter Courtney, and son Cole.
