If you take the time to implement the book's three projects, you will come away with a good understanding of HTML. Presented for the pure novice, both in HTML, the internet, and programming.( Sometimes to a fault, but they leave no one behind. ) The references provided to active web sites for various kinds of information and examples are extremely useful. The help on search engine registration is great !!

I found this book very helpful for getting up to speed on HTML quickly. The real world examples keep the subject matter relevant and practical. If you are an experienced programmer you may find it slow at times.

I found the book very helpful. The practical life like projects help you get a clear understanding of steps involved in developing a web site. The CD included was very helpful too
A real good book for a BEGINER..

This is a great book for the newcomer to HTML. I would probably not recommend this book to an experienced programmer, since it presents the material very gradually, a bite at a time.
The author begins with a little internet history, and gives you the contextual framework that HTML fits into. He then procedes to walk you step by step through the construction of a simple website. He really holds your hand so you can't get lost. With his conversational tone and patient pace he makes you feel at ease. There is no reason to be intimidated by HTML or afraid of it, since it is not difficult, as this book proves.
Next he walks you through the development of a more advanced website. He discusses design principles along the way, so you learn a bit about what works and doesn't work on the web.
Finally, you build a third website. Each exercise builds upon the ones before. Nothing in the book is difficult, and it's virtually error free. I think I found one code error. Quite impressive. The only thing I would change about the book is that I'd include a more advanced layout using nested tables at the end of the book. Tables are extremely important.
One of the appendices in the back is a refernce of all (or most) of the HTML tags. I keep refering to it.
The CD is cool. It contains a pile of software you can try out. You'll use one of the programs to create an image map. This was the only place in the book that got me confused. His instructions didn't quite match up with what was on the CD. But just being creative and exploring I was able to figure it out. And if you don't know what an image map is just trust me, they're cool. You'll never believe how easy they are until you do one.
