From the Author:

This book covers HTML from basics to advanced topics through a measured approach. Exercises are designed to be repetitive and allow students to try progressively more difficult exercises to build confidence and to master concepts. Portfolio Builder exercises allow students to complete real-world examples.

The content and exercises specifically target areas where newcomers typically make mistakes. A team of technical editors provided great feedback throughout the writing process, based on years of teaching technical subjects. I'm also grateful for the large number of students whose constant feedback helped me learn how to create a great book.

The series is designed to work well for non-traditional learners who prefer to learn by trying things themselves instead of being bombarded with abstract concepts. If you're not a hard-core-computer-science-type, it's a great book to help you on the road to becoming a serious technical designer. If you are a hard-core-computer-science type, you'll appreciate the thoroughness of this book.
