9780078823978: HTML: The Complete Reference

This guide contains detailed information about HTML 3.2 through tutorials, theory and references. The 16 chapters include examples of why and when to use specific aspects of HTML. Tags new to HTML 3.2 are highlighted. The book also features a 300-page alphabeticized reference section to HTML and a style-sheet reference guide. Information to support both Netscape and Miscrosoft's Internet Explorer are included. In addition, the source code for the book is posted on Osborne's Web site for easy access. While it focuses on many technologies, the book is concerned with how HTML intersects with those technologies rather than attempting to discuss all aspects of the individual technologies. Both a basic introduction to HTML, and a detailed reference section of actual tags and features are provided. There is also information on WebTV, style sheets, and new Netscape 4.0 and Internet Explorer 4.0 tags.

Review:

Most HTML books don't bother to give beginners an introduction to the workings of the World Wide Web because the Web doesn't directly influence writing HTML documents. Powell provides this information because it eventually makes it easier for readers to understand why their HTML Web sites behave as they do. The result is a book well suited to beginning, intermediate, and advanced readers. Beginners learn HTML from the very basics. Intermediate users will gain the knowledge to become advanced, and even old pros will discover new details and updated information.

Powell begins the book with introductory chapters that discuss HTML and Web background and set the limits of what HTML coding alone can accomplish. From there he moves into lessons in basic HTML and progresses chapter by chapter to such high-end topics as advanced layout techniques, how to standardize Web-page presentation among browsers with style sheets, programmed Web pages, and client-side scripting and programming. The six appendices finish the book with a wealth of easy-to-use quick-reference information. --Elizabeth Lewis
