Absolute Beginner's Guide to Creating Web Pages assumes that readers are true beginners - no prior Web page experience is necessary!

This hands-on tutorial teaches readers the fundamentals of creating Web pages, along with more advanced ideas like message areas, chat, and e-commerce options to make the page look like it was created by a professional. The book begins by explaining the need for HTML and the basics of good Web page design. It then covers using HTML tags and tools, formatting text, adding images, and building links. Later chapters demonstrate how to add features to Web pages including tables, colors, frames, multimedia content, JavaScript, Style Sheets and Dynamic HTML. The author has also included several hundred pages of useful additional information, perfect for the beginning Web designer.

This book has a very major weakness. A lot of HTML code is given without showing how this code would actually appear on a webpage. This is really quite confusing at times. Read full review
