Inside 'Head First HTML and CSS'
Telling a story with Pictures
In Head First books, we know that pictures and diagrams help make concepts easier to understand and get them cemented in your mind. Just about every single page contains colorful graphics to help explain the core HTML and CSS concepts so you don't just learn them for today, you remember them for the next job interview.
Really learn HTML and CSS
When you're done reading Head First HTML & CSS, we want you to deeply understand HTML and CSS, not just be able to follow some recipes to do a few things. We don't shy away from difficult topics, so you don't have to either. Our goal is for you to discover that you really can learn HTML and CSS, in a way that you can apply to every web page you build.
To create beautiful web sites you need to understand how color works on the web, right? Head First HTML and CSS is a beautiful, full color book. Not only will you learn, you'll finish knowing how to use CSS to style your pages with colorful flair.
"Head First HTML and CSS is a thoroughly modern introduction to forward-looking practices in Web page markup and presentation. It correctly anticipates readers' puzzlements and handles them just in time. The highly graphic and incremental approach precisely mimics the best way to learn this stuff: make a small change and see it in the browser to understand what each new item means."
-- Danny Goodman, author of Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Guide
"The Web would be a much better place if every HTML author started off by reading this book."
-- L. David Baron, Technical Lead, Layout & CSS, Mozilla Corporation

I can't learn giant chunks of information in one sitting like I could when I was in school because of migraines and an illness I got a few years ago. It's such a relief learning things without getting migraines again ;w; I can't recommend it highly enough.
The creators of this book have my complete devotion and support and I know I'll buy more books from them in the future. Also if you're looking for a reference book, they have reference books by O'Reilly that you can buy. They're probably just as good as this one, to be honest. (I'm buying them after I finish this book lol)
Several years ago I started the wrong way around by getting a book on CSS before I understood HTML and picked up some useful information and by asking questions and looking at HTML from actual websites I was able to teach myself some of the language and put it together, but I was never confident about it and I didn't know how to determine if I had the correct syntax or other parameters. I'm only about half way through the book, but already I've seen a lot of what I did know pulled together and explained in a way that I really remember and can go back and use without constantly referring to the book. In fact I've started reworking a website I tried to set up several years ago and I've made more progress in about a week than I made in 6 months before!
The takeaway for me is that it REALLY is important to do the exercises and finish each of the puzzles whether they seem simple or not. I don't know why it works, but for me it has put all the pieces I already knew into a greater whole that I can remember and use.
I don't know what I'll tackle next, but I'm pretty sure I'll start with a Head First book!
