  • Teaches proper standards-compliant HTML, not outdated techniques—a modern, up-to-date perspective on web development
  • Includes reference sections at the back so readers can easily look up syntax
  • No previous programming experience is necessary

This HTML book is intended to be the cornerstone in any modern aspiring web developers library. But, why another HTML book?

The answer is that web development has changed with the advent of web standards, meaning that a lot of the old books are now obsolete—all the code and techniques contained within this book are strictly standards compliant and best practice, so the reader is not taught outdated, bad techniques, and their web pages will work properly in most web browsers, be lean and small in file size, accessible to web users with disabilities, and easily located by search engines such as Google.

Beginning HTML with CSS and XHTML uses practical examples to show readers how to structure data correctly using (X)HTML, and the basics of styling it and laying it out using Cascading Style Sheets (CSS,) and adding dynamic behavior to it using JavaScript…as quickly as possible. It is also useful to more experienced web developers—there are comprehensive reference tables at the back of the book.
