Publisher Comments:

The acclaimed, best-selling visual guide to learning HTML

HTML for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide has garnered universal praise in its two previous editions as the succinct, indispensable guide to using HTML to design pages for the World Wide Web. Perfect for beginners, it presumes no prior knowledge of HTML or even the Internet. It uses clear, concise instructions for creating each element of a Web page, from titles and headers to creating links and adding tables, frames, forms, and multimedia. Completely updated for HTML 4, this Third Edition includes such major new topics as cascading style sheets and dynamic HTML. There's also coverage of the improved form, frame, and table capabilities.

Because of its well-organized format and real-world coverage of HTML tags, this book will also serve as a day-to-day reference for experienced Web designers. Each section is illustrated with examples of the actual code used to create a page alongside the resulting page, enabling readers to visually understand each component. The book also offers a wide variety of tips on creating good-looking pages and how to avoid common pitfalls of Web design.
-- The second edition is currently Peachpit's #1 seller in 1997, with over 110,000 copies in lifetime sales
-- The Third Edition covers all the new HTML tags for HTML 4
-- Covers the same material found in other HTML books at half the price and a third of the pages
-- Includes handy full-color hex color foldout chart
