This is the perfect book for everyone who wants to learn web design, whether for private or professional use. Jennifer Niederst has a fun, comprehensible style and uses an easy hands-on approach with exercises and a "test yourself"-section at the end of each chapter.
The book starts with the very basics (How the web works, What you need) and covers the design process, html & css (formatting text, links, tables, frames, color), graphics, basic and advanced techniques and includes loads of good advice and useful hints. It introduces you to the more popular web authoring and graphics creation tools (demo versions included on CD-ROM).
The big advantage of this book is that a complex process is broken down into bite-size bits but you still learn how it all works together and get in-depth information. Not the cheapest book available but worth every cent!!!
