Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML

by Eric Freeman, Elisabeth Freeman

I have no idea what ever happened to Crystal Waters, but her book ground-breaking book "Web Concepts & Design" opened the eyes of a whole generation of web design back in the early 1990s -- but Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML is the first book we've seen since that makes web construction a breeze and a joy for that first-time developer!

Tired of reading HTML books that only make sense after you're an expert? Then it's about time you picked up Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML and really learned HTML.

You want to learn HTML so you can finally create those Web pages you've always wanted, so you can communicate more effectively with friends, family, fans and fanatic customers. You also want to do it right so you can actually maintain and expand your Web pages over time, and so your Web pages work in all the browsers and mobile devices out there. Oh, and if you've never heard of CSS, that's okay - we won't tell anyone you're still partying like it's 1999 - but if you're going to create Web pages in the 21st century then you'll want to know and understand CSS.

Learn the real secrets of creating Web pages, and why everything your boss told you about HTML tables is probably wrong (and what to do instead). Most importantly, hold your own with your co-worker (and impress cocktail party guests) when he casually mentions how his HTML is now strict, and his CSS is in an external style sheet.

With Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML, you'll avoid the embarrassment of thinking Web-safe colors still matter, and the foolishness of slipping a font tag into your pages. Best of all, you'll learn HTML and CSS in a way that won't put you to sleep. If you've read a Head First book, you know what to expect: a visually-rich format designed for the way your brain works. Using the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory, this book will load HTML, CSS, and XHTML into your brain in a way that sticks.

Danny Goodman, author of Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Guide says:
      "This book is a thoroughly modern introduction to forward-looking practices in web page markup and presentation."

Sally Applin, UI Designer and Artist says:
      "I love Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML--it teaches you everything you need to learn in a 'fun coated' format!"

So what are you waiting for? Leave those other dusty books behind and come join us in Webville. Your tour is about to begin.
