When I decided to design a web site for my company Bad Monkey Productions, I wanted to use code rather than relying on software. I had absolutely no experience with computer language or code and was understandably intimidated. Laura Lemay's book rescued me. I receive many compliments on my site and I owe it all to this book. It was the perfect guide when I was a beginner and a handy reference now that I have a little experience.

Format: Paperback
While I admire Ms. LeMay's writing style, I am afraid that her approach to web page design is terribly outdated. This book focuses on creating what David Siegel would call "first generation" web pages; i.e. simple, flat layouts on gray backgrounds, with very little visual appeal. Her advice on which tags to use (<Hx>, <EM>, <STRONG>, <HR>) only reinforces how out-of-touch she is -- no one codes like this anymore. Where is the coverage on how to layout your pages using tables and frames? Where is the advice on using the <FONT> tag to gain greater control over your typography? Every screen-shot in this book looks like something from 1995 (that's a LOOOOOOONG time ago in web years!). There is nothing here that can't be found for free on the Web, in one of those online HTML for beginners guides.
If you want your web site to look like a relic from the dawn of the Web, read this book. If you would prefer to have modern, professional-looking web pages, I recommend "HTML Publishing on the Internet" by Brent Heslop, followed by "Creating Killer Web Sites" or "HTML Artistry".

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book for the person who wants to learn HTML but has no prior experience in Web Publishing. I read the majority of the book in one weekend and created my first website! The book gives you the basics to create a usable and stylish website. If the user wants more interactivity on their webpage, they will have to go somewhere else, but this is a good start. The book does teach frames and tables which is important for layout. I recommend this book to the novice Web Publisher.

Format: Paperback
This book is fantastic for the individual who wants to learn HTML quickly. Although it does not delve into the advanced topics too far, it is a good starting point. Lemay's style is straight forward and will have you writing web pages in no time. With this book and CGI 101/102 you could be designing and programming for the web in a basic capacity in a week, but by no means stop there!

By A Customer on June 7, 1998
Format: Paperback
I have read the criticism's of the book and must disagree. One must keep in mind the target audience of the author, that being the beginning HTML coder. Given this understanding Lemay offers a good intro to HTML, including HTML 4.0 at the level in which she has intended to communicate to the reader. Lemay also discusses some of the common pitfalls the novice is likely to fall into with guidance as to how to avoid them. Her samples and illustrations are clear and the book is reasonably structured. If one is looking for a complete reference manual this isn't it and I do not believe that was Lemay's objective. For the intended audience, and the price, the book is a good investment.

By A Customer on November 9, 1997
Format: Paperback
I hate to say it but this book offers little that you can't find elsewhere done much better. The book is poorly conceived and executed. I found numerous errors that simply shouldn't be in the fourth edition of ANY book. WORSE YET! For a book that is supposed to be about HTML 4 this has so little coverage you'll want to scream. The claim that Lemay's book started the whole HTML/Web publishing craze is so ludricrous as to be ridiculous. Tim Berners Lee is the creator of HTML. Him and dozens of his colleagues at the W3.Org created the WWW and set the ground work for everything we have now.

I got exactly what I expected after checking it out on the bookshelf: An excellent way to learn HTML, updated for (but not thorough on) 4.0. That's exactly what it was. Yes, it's not much help to seasoned HTML users that want to know all the new 4.0 stuff in detail. But so what? Until more people update their browsers, they won't all see your CSS's, etc. **BIGGEST STRENGTH: Lemay tells you what is HTML 2.0, 3.0 and 4.0, and what Netscape is going to do to your code vs. Internet Explorer. (she over-emphasizes the text-only browsers such as Lynx, though).
