    Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
    I never really thought of myself as a prissy Goldilocks, but I recently realized that these "Teach Yourself" books tend to be either too easy or too hard. I recently read Sams Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours (Includes New HTML 5 Coverage) (8th Edition) and found it to be too simplistic. But this book is truly *just right*.

    Self-paced HTML books are a commodity: they've been around for years and they're pretty much all alike. But there are good ones and bad ones.

    I like this book for two main reasons:

    * I like the gradient. It starts off simple and then picks up the tempo very nicely. I like this, because it gives me more content that I can really sink my teeth into. If I just wanted a list of HTML tags I could search online and find what I was looking for. But I want an explanation of the concepts and best practices. I want comparisons of different techniques. This book does a nice job of this.

    * I like the all-in-one approach of this book. Sometimes that works and sometimes it doesn't. In this case, it works well. This book delivers a good balance of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript all in one book. That's great, because a good web page really needs all three of these elements.

    I write technical documentation for a living, so I am a tough critic. I don't often encounter technical publications that make me nod and say, "nicely done, my good author". But I approve of the job that Julie Meloni did with this book. Nicely done.

    இ Fuzzy Wuzzy's Summary:
    ѾѾѾ Somewhat recommended, with reservations and only lukewarm fuzzies.

    I would actually rate this book 3.5 stars, with a 4-star rating for intermediate Web users, but a 3-star rating for both beginning Web coders and users who have already been coding at an intermediate level for awhile.

    For starters, the back cover of this 600-page book says: "Covers: HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.1, HTML5, CSS 2/3, JavaScript" and "User Level: Beginning-Intermediate", and this can be somewhat misleading. This book provides broad sweeping overviews along with very nice specific coverage of various aspects of HTML 4.01, XHTML 1.1, CSS2, and JavaScript. However, even though the book's front cover also proclaims "HTML5 Coverage", there really is barely any HTML5 coverage at all in this book, nor does this book delve into the niceties of what CSS3 can add to styling your Web pages. For example, page 54 describes the CSS 'border' property, but it totally ignores the CSS3 enhancements that allow you to create rounded borders. The new CSS3 abilities to create shadow offsets, color gradients, specify color as RGBA/opacity values, and create really cool transforms of elements to alter their shape/size/position are also never mentioned even once. Likewise, HTML5 introduces a plethora of new tag elements to organize the structure of your Web pages better, more logically, more efficiently, and with better semantics (such as the new <section>, <article>, <header>, and <footer> elements), and a variety of both new elements and new attributes for existing elements are also introduced. *NONE* of these HTML5 improvements are covered in the least bit in this book.

    I have a 12 year old who likes to puzzle out how computers work, and he loves this book. What he likes is the co-location of CSS, Java, and HTML in one book, and the exercises or examples that let him play around with the languages. He tells me, in 12 year old words, that this book is accessible, useful, and really cool. He also mentioned that he was surprised that this is by a woman... to which his Mom informed him clearly and directly, that this should be no surprise, that she can program circles around me.

    This book filled the bill, for a beginnner who likes to fiddle.

    I chose this tutorial to teach myself the basics of HTML. I am a true beginner, knowing that typing in code such as HTML changes website design and realigns paragraphs, margins and indentations. As a basic (mediocre) blogger I wanted to understand how basic HTML works so that I can customize my own blog to make it more aesthetically pleasing.

    In some ways this book is ideal, as it provides the needed step-by-step procedures from the beginning. This book does provide that, but for an "idiot" such as myself, much hands-on practice is required. I use my own web site host as a practice tool, and I have seen results. But it's a slow process.

    I haven't become a master yet with this book. Maybe I never will, but I have been able to pick up enough knowledge in the past month to better understand website design. Some chapters have been more helpful than others. Although Javascript is still something I need to work on, I have a better understanding of working with fonts, text blocks and lists (chapter 5), using tables to display information (chapter 6), using external and internal links (chapter 7) and working with color images and multimedia (Chapter 8). If anything, I now better understand what designers need to imput when designing a webpage, and I know I need much more practice.

    Because I am a true "idiot" in the sense of not being a natural with website design, this book alone is difficult to use. I have found tutorials on YouTube and asking co-workers who understand HTML to be just as beneficial, and much more satisfying for instant feedback.

    Someone with much more HTML experience and knowledge may benefit greatly from this book. It's well-organized and detailed in its explanations of its steps, but for someone who seems to lack that fluency with webpage design, this may remain one more headbanging monstrosity needing more repetitious practice.
