Book summary

Part of the Teach Yourself series, this book puts all of the foundational knowledge you need to build Web sites into one large volume, along with a solid explanation of the code and design principles involved. Experienced author Laura Lemay packs a tremendous amount of instruction into this massive title.

The first week of instruction covers the basics of the Web; introduces HTML; and presents simple text formatting, links, and image display. Since this book focuses on product-independent HTML 4 coding rather than instruction on a particular Web-design application, the skills you acquire will be applicable in any tool. In the next seven days of instruction, the author teaches you about style sheets, frames, tables, and the use of multimedia elements. Throughout these discussions, she presents each topic in the context of real-world application and page design.

In the final week, Lemay takes you beyond the basics and into the world of Java, Common Gateway Interface (CGI) scripting, and dynamic HTML (DHTML), including discussions of the differences between Netscape and Microsoft implementations. She finishes the book off with several chapters on effective design, site publishing and promotion, and server administration. A companion CD-ROM includes demo and trial versions of tons of authoring tools and clip media. --Stephen W. Plain [via]
