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.
