Please note though that as I said its a good book for beginners but you'll quickly outgrow it once you get a feel for the basics. I recommend that you purchase, "CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions" within three months from when you begin reading this book. My analogy of these two books are this: Ms. Castro's book is a course in using all of the tools in the carpentry shop and doing small projects. The CSS Mastery book is like then taking an apprenticeship under a master carpenter to build some really nice things with the basic skills that you previously acquired.
but was a total HTML newbie. This book, while not perfect,
seems to go at the right pace, and gives the right amount of
detail when needed.
In particular, the tradeoffs between older HTML, XHTML and using
CSS are well explained. After reading this book, (and with the
help of a Web Editor), I was able to create a small (25 page)
web site for a company that I just started.
I don't own any other HTML books (yet), but did look through
several. Of the 5 - 6 I looked through, this seemed to be
the best. I think I made the right choice as this book has
provided me everything I needed to know on HTML to get up and
"HTML 4" was easier to get into & better-paced, I think. However, that said, this is probably the best book available for getting a grip on XHTML & CSS, generally clear and thorough.
With plethora of web languages and tools out there, getting overwhelmed is an understatement. No wonder there are so many spaghetti codes out there when it comes to web programming.
Also, another dilemma arrives; if you need to design a JSP application, where do you start? Do you learn Java first and start writing the java servlets first, followed by the JSP tags? Or do you learn html/xhtml first, or XML etc?
I honestly think there are no right or wrong answers. It depends on the individual. If you already know java, more power to you. Hence, learning how to write java servlets would be a breeze. Or if you already know VB, you would cut 1/2 of the time understanding VBScript.
The truth is; web programming is so difficult to comprehend. You just don't know where to start. However, Henry Ford once said, "Nothing is too difficult if you break them into smaller pieces." Therefore, when it's too complicated, stick with the obvious(the basic) - XHTML!
After 6 years of writing client-server applications, I finally have a chance to write my first web application. This book taught me how to write XHTML syntax in one week! My mind was beleagured with questions before I read this book. Upon finished reading this book, I began to understand how to approach the application. It came with intuition!
To reiterate, this book will give you the solid foundation before you dip your feet into the web environment and start using the other languages, i.e. asp, jsp, xml etc. XHTML or HTML is compulsory. There are no shortcut...
