More Praise for Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML

“I *heart* Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML – it teaches you everything you need to learn in a ‘fun coated’ format!”

Sally Applin, UI Designer and Fine Artist, http://sally.com.

“This book has humor, and charm, but most importantly, it has heart. I know that sounds ridiculous to say about a technical book, but I really sense that at its core, this book (or at least its authors) really care that the reader learn the material. This comes across in the style, the language, and the techniques. Learning – real understanding and comprehension – on the part of the reader is clearly top most in the minds of the Freemans. And thank you, thank you, thank you, for the book’s strong, and sensible advocacy of standards compliance. It’s great to see an entry level book, that I think will be widely read and studied, campaign so eloquently and persuasively on behalf of the value of standards compliance in web page code. I even found in here a few great arguments I had not thought of – ones I can remember and use when I am asked – as I still am – ‘what’s the deal with compliance and why should we care?’ I’ll have more ammo now! I also liked that the book sprinkles in some basics about the mechanics of actually getting a web page live - FTP, web server basics, file structures, etc.”

“Freeman’s Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML is a most entertaining book for learning how to build a great web page. It not only covers everything you need to know about HTML, CSS, and XHTML, it also excels in explaining everything in layman’s terms with a lot of great examples. I found the book truly enjoyable to read, and I learned something new!”

Newton Lee, Editor-in-Chief, ACM Computers in Entertainment http://www.acmcie.org

“My wife stole the book. She’s never done any web design, so she needed a book like Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML to take her from beginning to end. She now has a list of web sites she wants to build – for our son’s class, our family, ... If I’m lucky, I’ll get the book back when she’s done.”

David Kaminsky, Master Inventor, IBM

“Beware. If you’re someone who reads at night before falling asleep, you’ll have to restrict Head First HTML with CSS & XHTML to daytime reading. This book wakes up your brain.”

Pauline McNamara, Center for New Technologies and Education, Fribourg University, Switzerland
