Book News Annotation:

This guide introduces the basic HTML tags for creating web pages, uses tables to structure pages and frames to organize sites, and explains how to make pages dynamic with JavaScript and animate pages with Flash. The book is intended for beginners, but it may overwhelm the average hobbyist who can get a web site up much more quickly with Dreamweaver or GoLive. The second edition no longer includes a CD- ROM and covers HTML 4.01 and Flash MX 2004.
