Overview

The heart of web development is still HTML, and no matter what spiffy tools you use, you need to understand HTML well to get the results you're after. Laura Lemay's Sam's Teach Yourself Web Publishing With HTML 4 IN 21 DAYS is a complete, well-structured course in HTML that will take you from novice to relative sophisticate, PDQ. It's a great book for folks who've been meaning to learn HTML for years and have finally decided to wait no longer.

Lemay starts with the absolute basics, and gently carries you through the basics of hyperlinks, text formatting, images, colors, backgrounds, transparent GIFs, and so forth. By Day 10, you're ready to take control of your designs with Cascading Style Sheets; then, in Days 11 and 12, you'll master tables and frames. There's coverage of multimedia; interactive forms; CGI scripts; imagemaps; even JavaScript. In the latest edition, Lemay has tacked on nine new chapters, so there are really 30 days of lessons here, not 21. The new stuff includes useful web design dos and don'ts, the basics of actually getting your site online, promoting it, and lots more.

This isn't a book for professional web designers, but if you'd like an introduction to HTML that's comprehensive -- and comprehensible -- it's worth your serious consideration.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
The classic beginner's guide to HTML authoring has been thoroughly revised—and it's earning its reputation all over again for a new generation of web publishers.

The book is Laura Lemay's Sams Teach Yourself Web Publishing With HTML 4 IN 24 DAYS. This brand-new edition has been updated to cover hot-off-the-press stuff like XHTML, and deliver more real-world guidance on DHTML/CSS. Even more important, though, it shares updated insights into what works and what doesn't—so you won't have to reinvent any wheels.

You'll find plenty of step-by-step instructions, sample code, and example pages (designed for simplicity and teachability, not to showcase the state-of-the-art). Along the way, you'll learn how to organize your content, structure your pages, use web graphics effectively, work with tables and frames, and incorporate basic multimedia and forms.

The book includes a common-sense guide to targeting your web site to the preferences of your users; step-by-step techniques for publishing your site; plus coverage of testing, revising, maintaining and promoting it. All in the spirit of the original: friendly, readable, and simple.

    A good book for beginners and pros alike.

    This is a good book for someone if they are just starting up with HTML, if you know some HTML and need to learn more, and also for reference once you know HTML. Although finding some things for reference can be hard at time, it's all in there. The book covers using multimedia, styke sheets (only a little though), tables, frames, DHTML, web design, and others. I would definitely recommend this book.

    I can't recommend this book high enough.

    I got this book from a friend when I was unemployed. I read it & worked on creating my own pages with what I learned. Within a week I learned enough to land a $15 an hour job. Easily understandable which makes the learning quick. I now make much more than $15 an hour & its only been a year since I obtained this book. Please if you buy only one HTML book-get this one!
