9781565924925: HTML: The Definitive Guide

HTML is changing so fast it's almost impossible to keep up with developments. How do you know what's real, and how do you use it? The third edition of HTML: The Definitive Guide brings it all together for you. It is the most comprehensive book available on HTML today. It covers Netscape Navigator 4.5, Internet Explorer 4.0, HTML, JavaScript, Style sheets, Layers, and all of the features supported by the popular Web browsers. Learning HTML is like learning any new language, computer or human. Most students first immerse themselves in examples. Studying others is a natural way to learn, making learning easy and fun. Imitation can take you only so far, though. It's as easy to learn bad habits through imitation as it is to acquire good ones. The better way to become HTML-fluent is through a comprehensive reference that covers the language syntax, semantics, and variations in detail and that helps you distinguish between good and bad usage.

HTML: The Definitive Guide, 3rd Edition helps you both ways: the authors cover every element of HTML in detail, explaining how each element works and how it interacts with other elements. Many hints about HTML style help you write documents ranging from simple online documentation to complex marketing and sales presentations. With hundreds of examples, the book gives you models for writing your own effective Web pages and for mastering advanced features, like style sheets and frames.

HTML: The Definitive Guide, 3rd Edition shows you how to:

  • Use style sheets and layers to control a document's appearance
  • Create tables, from simple to complex
  • Use frames to coordinate sets of documents
  • Design and build interactive forms and dynamic documents
  • Insert images, sound files, video, Java applets, and JavaScript programs
  • Create documents that look good on a variety of browsers

A handy quick reference card listing HTML tags is included.

Review:

In the most recent edition of this acclaimed HTML guide, Musciano and Kennedy look closely at every aspect of HTML and show how to use it wisely to create top-quality Web pages. The book is up-to-date, covering HTML 4, Netscape Navigator 4, Microsoft Internet Explorer 4, and the various extensions of each.

HTML: The Definitive Guide is aimed at beginners as well as those who have more practice in Web-page creation. The authors assume at least a basic knowledge of computers, including how to use a word processor or text editor and how to deal with files. They teach you that learning HTML is like learning any other language and that reading a book of rules can only take you so far. Readers begin writing what may be their first Web page just two pages into the book's second chapter. From there on, they provide a wide range of HTML coding to allow readers to learn from good examples. The book includes a handy "cheat sheet" of HTML codes for quick reference. --Elizabeth Lewis
