It's important for anyone who creates Web sites--even those who rely on powerful editors like Dreamweaver or GoLive--to know HTML. The World Wide Web Consortium rewrote HTML as a subset of XML (dubbing it "XHTML 1.0") and the allowable code will eventually be stricter. Tags that are being phased out are labeled "deprecated"--current browsers can still handle them, but if you want your site to keep up with future browsers, not to mention conform to accessibility requirements, you will want to get on top of XHTML.

Of course, Elizabeth Castro manages to write books that not only speak to those who are already fluent in HTML, but are good for newbies too. She makes it a breeze to create sites that are visually stylish and technically sophisticated without the expense of buying an editor.

Among the topics covered in her new book, HTML for the World Wide Web with XHTML and CSS: using the (relatively newer) structural tags (like doctype and div); correctly using older tags (like p and img) that have been modified in XHTML; writing XHTML so that formatting is done by the style sheets; writing those style sheets (cascading style sheets, a.k.a. "CSS"); creating a variety of layouts; and dealing with tables, frames, forms, multimedia, a bit of JavaScript (including mouseovers), WML (for mobile device displays), debugging, publishing, and publicizing your site.

As with all Visual QuickStart Guides, this one features clear and concise instructions side by side with well-captioned illustrations and screen shots that show both the source code and the resulting effect on the Web page. The index is extremely detailed, making this a great reference.

Also great for reference are the outstanding appendices. The first is an extensive list of tags and attributes, indicating which are deprecated and/or proprietary and on which page they are discussed. A similar appendix shows CSS properties and values; given the future of Web coding, this chart alone is worth the price of the book. Other handy charts cover intrinsic events, symbols and character Unicodes, and an expanded color chart that goes way beyond the virtually archaic Web-safe palette. All of which makes this a definite must-have for every Web designer's bookshelf. --Angelynn Grant


As both the Web itself and the browsers used to navigate it mature, work-arounds that compensate for the myriad factors that affect Web page appearances no longer cut it. Users expect Web pages to look beautiful regardless--and with the fifth edition of this popular Visual QuickStart Guide, readers can make their Web pages comply. By following the generously illustrated, step-by-step instructions that are the hallmark of the VQS series, readers will be creating beautiful code that works consistently across browser versions and platforms (including hand-held devices and cell phones) in no time. This updated edition includes a new section on foreign-language and multilingual Web sites as well as lots of coverage on how the use of HTML is changing. What hasn't changed, however, is the book's popular format: Task-oriented, step-by-step instruction that builds on the reader's growing knowledge plus info-packed appendixes, a comprehensive index, and plenty of screen shots and code examples make this a must-have reference. For anyone interested in knowing HTML--from those just getting their feet wet (no prior HTML knowledge is required) to professional Web site developers.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Good beginners book for those new to web design 27. November 2007
Von Dennie C - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I purchased this book I believe about two years ago when I decided that I wanted to learn about web design. I had good previous experiences with Peachpit Press in particular their Visual Quickstart books so I naturally looked for an HTML book from this series. Fast forward till now and I've been able to create a few interesting web pages from what I've learned and certainly HTML For the World Wide Web was certainly a good start. My impression of Ms. Castro is that she is one of those rare people who are not only good at their subject matter but also very competent in effectively teaching it to people from different levels of experience.

Please note though that as I said its a good book for beginners but you'll quickly outgrow it once you get a feel for the basics. I recommend that you purchase, "CSS Mastery: Advanced Web Standards Solutions" within three months from when you begin reading this book. My analogy of these two books are this: Ms. Castro's book is a course in using all of the tools in the carpentry shop and doing small projects. The CSS Mastery book is like then taking an apprenticeship under a master carpenter to build some really nice things with the basic skills that you previously acquired.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Still a great intro to XHTML 31. Januar 2015
Von Bear - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Castro produces another hit! While getting out of date, still a great introduction to XHTML and a good reference for those of you coding your own pages. You might want to wait for a version that is more oriented toward the new HTML5, if Elizabeth issues her update. The Visual Quick Start she co-wrote with Bruce Hyslop is a little pricy for some of us.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Better than promised 28. Mai 2003
Von Just another Music/Web/Technology Lover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a great book. I have a lot of programming experience,
but was a total HTML newbie. This book, while not perfect,
seems to go at the right pace, and gives the right amount of
detail when needed.
In particular, the tradeoffs between older HTML, XHTML and using
CSS are well explained. After reading this book, (and with the
help of a Web Editor), I was able to create a small (25 page)
web site for a company that I just started.
I don't own any other HTML books (yet), but did look through
several. Of the 5 - 6 I looked through, this seemed to be
the best. I think I made the right choice as this book has
provided me everything I needed to know on HTML to get up and

3.0 von 5 Sternen Probably still the best out there, but... 24. August 2003
Von felicitaz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
...someone without any experience of HTML or web design might find this successor to Castro's HTML 4 overwhelming. I'm teaching an introduction to web design course & using it as a textbook, but have decided to skip over Chapter 1 because of the barrage of jargon...not a good way to ease students into the subject! Does a complete novice need to know in Chapter 1 the distinctions between inherited CSS styles, selectors, specificity, class, id, etc., when CSS aren't even dealt with until Chapter 8?
"HTML 4" was easier to get into & better-paced, I think. However, that said, this is probably the best book available for getting a grip on XHTML & CSS, generally clear and thorough.

5.0 von 5 Sternen You have to start with XHTML before using other languages! 9. November 2002
Von max power - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Here is the story of my life:- Once I get an assignment, I have one month to figure out how to design the application.
With plethora of web languages and tools out there, getting overwhelmed is an understatement. No wonder there are so many spaghetti codes out there when it comes to web programming.
Also, another dilemma arrives; if you need to design a JSP application, where do you start? Do you learn Java first and start writing the java servlets first, followed by the JSP tags? Or do you learn html/xhtml first, or XML etc?
I honestly think there are no right or wrong answers. It depends on the individual. If you already know java, more power to you. Hence, learning how to write java servlets would be a breeze. Or if you already know VB, you would cut 1/2 of the time understanding VBScript.
The truth is; web programming is so difficult to comprehend. You just don't know where to start. However, Henry Ford once said, "Nothing is too difficult if you break them into smaller pieces." Therefore, when it's too complicated, stick with the obvious(the basic) - XHTML!
After 6 years of writing client-server applications, I finally have a chance to write my first web application. This book taught me how to write XHTML syntax in one week! My mind was beleagured with questions before I read this book. Upon finished reading this book, I began to understand how to approach the application. It came with intuition!
To reiterate, this book will give you the solid foundation before you dip your feet into the web environment and start using the other languages, i.e. asp, jsp, xml etc. XHTML or HTML is compulsory. There are no shortcut...
