HTML Goodies

Front Cover
Que, 1999 - Computers - 527 pages
This book is a fun and easy introduction to building Web sites with HTML. Author Joe Burns' content and approach have been proven by the success of the HTML Goodies Web site. The HTML Goodies Web Site ( receives over 390,000 visitors a month. The site has received over 75 awards in the last year, including USA Today and CMP Publishing (publishers of popular computer magazines like Home PC, Windows Magazine, and Internet Week).

Joe Burns knows exactly what beginning HTML users need because he receives (and answers!) nearly 150 e-mails a day from visitors to his Web site.

This book takes the same approach to teaching as his popular Web site: know what beginners need, give them great examples and code they can immediately use, and keep it fast and fun.

The book goes far beyond HTML basics. It shows readers how to build the Web site features that they want the most, from password protected pages to visitor counters, guest books, scrolling marquees, RealAudio sound, and searchable databases. The book is heavily tied into the Web site -- each lesson and example in the book will have a direct URL to the HTML Goodies site where the reader can actually see exactly how the HTML code works. The Web Goodies site will also heavily advertise and cross-promote the book.

This is the book that I learned HTML with. I wouldn't recommend it now for anyone who is learning the markup because it is far out of date. The updated versions may be helpful but I have not used them. I keep it around for nostalgia. Read full review
