Overview

Want to learn how to build Web sites fast? This best-selling guide’s visual format and step-by-step, task-based instructions will have you up and running with HTML5 and CSS3 in no time. This Seventh Edition is a major revision, with approximately 125 pages added and substantial updates to (or complete rewrites of) nearly every page from the preceding edition. Authors Elizabeth Castro and Bruce Hyslop use clear instructions, friendly prose, and real-world code samples to teach you HTML and CSS from the ground up. Over the course of 21 chapters you will learn how to:
  • Write semantic HTML, both with elements that have been around for years and ones that are new in HTML5.
  • Prepare images for the Web and add them to your pages.
  • Use CSS to style text, add background colors and images, and implement a multicolumn layout.
  • Build a single site for all users—whether they are using a mobile phone, tablet, laptop, desktop computer, or other Web-enabled device—based on many of the components of responsive Web design, including CSS3 media queries.
  • Leverage new selectors in CSS3, add Web fonts to your pages with @font-face, and use CSS3 effects such as opacity, background alpha transparency, gradients, rounded corners, drop shadows, shadows inside elements, text shadows, and multiple background images.
  • Improve your site’s accessibility with ARIA landmark roles and other good coding practices.
  • Build forms to solicit input from your visitors.
  • Include media in your pages with the HTML5 audio and video elements.
  • Test and debug your Web pages.
  • Secure a domain name and publish your site.
And much more! All book code samples and more are available on the companion web site.

Meet the Author

Bruce Hyslop began developing for the Web in 1997 and focuses on interface technical architecture, development, usability, accessibility, and advocating best practices. He is the author of The HTML Pocket Guide (Peachpit Press, 2010), a thorough discussion and reference of all HTML elements (HTML5 and prior). Bruce also teaches a CSS course at UCLA Extension and occasionally speaks on matters regarding front-end development. Over the years, he has overseen front-end teams or been a developer for more than 150 projects, including those for ABC, BBC, Disney, Logitech, Microsoft, NBC Universal, Nokia, Target, Toyota, and Yahoo!, among others.

Bruce is an independent developer and consultant to agencies, start-ups, and others, previously having spent a decade in the digital agency world. Formerly, he was the senior director of the Interface Engineering Group (IEG) at Schematic, where he oversaw company-wide efforts to define and implement best practices regarding HTML, CSS, JavaScript, and accessibility wherever they may be applied: the browser, desktop, mobile devices, and emerging platforms.

Bruce was an early adopter of Web standards. At a previous agency in the early 2000s, he lead companies such as Baskin-Robbins and Pacific Gas & Electric into the fray of modern client-side practices while managing development between offices in Los Angeles, China, and New York.

    This is just my personal preference but I don't like that this book has no example to follow along with. It's an informative book with no hands on example to see how the topics covered would look when used in the designing of a web page.

    Information on the book jacket led me to believe this is a good book for people who already know HTML and CSS to upgrade their knowledge. It isn't. It is a basic guide for HTML and CSS with new content shoehorned in. A three star read for relative newbies, but a one star book for anyone who wants to quickly understand what is new with these two crucial tools.
