HTML Goodies Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

HTML Goodies, Second Edition is based on the most popular tutorials at HTMLGoodies.com. It starts with a series of short primers teaching the basics of building Web pages, then continues with detailed tutorials covering
  • Linking
  • Adding images
  • Using Tables and Frames
  • Working with Style Sheets

    Later chapters move beyond HTML, demonstrating how to add sound or video, JavaScript and CGI programming to Web pages. The book finishes with a series of useful appendices you can refer to for quick reference.

  • Book News Annotation:

    Burns, professor of communications at Susquehana University and creator of the award-winning HTML Goodies Web site, offers a series of self-contained, reader-friendly tutorials for learning HTML and building Web sites. Everything needed is contained in each lesson, so there is no need to check previous chapters for information. HTML is covered from the ground up, followed by material on building Web site features such as visitor counters, scrolling marquees, RealAudio sound, and searchable databases. Each "goody" in the book has a working example on the Web site.

    About the Author

    Joe Burns, Ph.D. began writing HTML tutorials in 1994 to be able to remember complex commands while teaching. Less than a month after his first five HTML Goodies tutorials were available, they were the most visited pages on the university Web site. At one point, the tutorials were taken down for a short while because the volume of visitors was putting too much of a strain on the server. The site exploded into millions of visitors in 1996 when seven HTML primers and 10 new tutorials were added to the first five to create HTMLGoodies.com. HTML Goodies is now the largest HTML help site on the Web, supporting over 180 tutorials, hundreds of free images, and numerous bad jokes.

    The site serves close to 8 million page views a month from a mind-boggling number of users. The site has won over 170 awards, been reviewed favorably in national newspapers and magazines, and continues to grow.

    Burns holds a Ph.D. in communications from Bowling Green State University. He's currently a professor of communications at Southeastern Louisiana University, where he lives with his wife and two cats, Mardi and Chloe.
