A full-color introduction to the basics of HTML and CSS from the publishers of Wrox! 

Every day, more and more people want to learn some HTML and CSS. Joining the professional web designers and programmers are new audiences who need to know a little bit of code at work (update a content management system or e-commerce store) and those who want to make their personal blogs more attractive. Many books teaching HTML and CSS are dry and only written for those who want to become programmers, which is why this book takes an entirely new approach.

  • Introduces HTML and CSS in a way that makes them accessible to everyone—hobbyists, students, and professionals—and it’s full-color throughout
  • Utilizes information graphics and lifestyle photography to explain the topics in a simple way that is engaging
  • Boasts a unique structure that allows you to progress through the chapters from beginning to end or just dip into topics of particular interest at your leisure

This educational book is one that you will enjoy picking up, reading, then referring back to. It will make you wish other technical topics were presented in such a simple, attractive and engaging way!

This book is also available as part of a set in hardcover - Web Design with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery, 9781119038634; and in softcover - Web Design with HTML, CSS, JavaScript and jQuery, 9781118907443.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HTML Helper I really enjoyed this book. It does not matter if you have written any code or not, this book should be on your bookshelf if you are doing any HTML.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Guide Book I've gone through different books on web design with HTML and CSS, this has to be the most welcoming, easy to follow, well laid out book thus far. Learning coding is already confusing enough, so to have the layout organized, the material well explained is definitely a plus. However I won't say you become an official web designer after this book, but it is definitely great for building a solid foundation before ongoing to the next level!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing! I bought this a while back and it's excellent! all of the page layouts are set up to help make the code easier to understand it works beautifully. It's much easier to read than any of the other HTML and CSS books I looked at and it's totally worth the price!
