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!

    Comments about HTML & CSS:

    This book is excellent. Clear and easy to understand explanations about HTML and CSS. The book is also well layed out and designed. Good clear visual diagrams and images to help explain HTML and CSS. The book is well worth purchasing, especially if you find it hard making sense of HTML and CSS.

      Comments about HTML & CSS:

      I have only used it a couple of times so far, but I have found many things that I did not know and perfect explanations that tell you what it is and why it is used.
