About the book:

Whether you use a high-end authoring application like Dreamweaver, or, in the most economical fashion, you write your own code out in a text file, knowing your way around HTML comes in handy. HTML 4 for the World Wide Web: Visual QuickStart Guide will teach you what you need to know quickly.

The book covers the latest specifications of HTML 4 set by the World Wide Web Consortium, from the most basic tags that place text, images and links on the page to more complex ones that set up tables, frames or forms. New to this fourth edition, the book provides a chapter on debugging, including browser compatibility issues, expanded sections on Cascading Style Sheets, Javascript, and CGI scripts for use with forms.

As with all Visual QuickStart Guides, HTML 4 features clear and concise instructions side-by-side with well-captioned illustrations and screenshots that show both the source code and the resulting effect on the Web page. The index is extremely detailed, making this a good reference book for intermediate users who are already familiar with basic HTML but need help with specific topics.

The book also includes extensive and useful appendices. One offers a chart that describes each tag (along with its compatibility with Netscape Navigator and/or Internet Explorer.) Other appendices show the code for special symbols, hexadecimal equivalents for RGB colours and a comparison chart for some of the HTML editors on the market. All in all, this is the perfect desktop reference for Web designers. --Angelynn Grant,
