Praise for Head First HTML and CSS

Head First HTML and CSS is a thoroughly modern introduction to forward-looking practices in web page markup and presentation. It correctly anticipates readers’ puzzlements and handles them just in time. The highly graphic and incremental approach precisely mimics the best way to learn this stuff: make a small change and see it in the browser to understand what each new item means.”

Danny Goodman, author of Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Guide

“Eric Freeman and Elisabeth Robson clearly know their stuff. As the Internet becomes more complex, inspired construction of web pages becomes increasingly critical. Elegant design is at the core of every chapter here, each concept conveyed with equal doses of pragmatism and wit.”

Ken Goldstein, Executive Vice President and Managing Director, Disney Online

“The Web would be a much better place if every HTML author started off by reading this book.”

L. David Baron, Technical Lead, Layout and CSS, Mozilla Corporation http://dbaron.org/

“I’ve been writing HTML and CSS for 10 years now, and what used to be a long trial-and-error learning process has now been reduced neatly into an engaging paperback. HTML used to be something you could just hack away at until things looked okay on screen, but with the advent of web standards and the movement toward accessibility, sloppy coding practice is not acceptable anymore...from a business standpoint or a social responsibility standpoint. Head First HTML and CSS teaches you how to do things right from the beginning without making the whole process seem overwhelming. HTML, when properly explained, is no more complicated than plain English, and the authors do an excellent job of keeping every concept at eye level.”

Mike Davidson, President and CEO, Newsvine, Inc.

“The information covered in this book is the same material the pros know, but taught in an educational and humorous manner that doesn’t ever make you think the material is impossible to learn or you are out of your element.”

Christopher Schmitt, author of The CSS Cookbook and Professional CSS,

“Oh, great. You made an HTML book simple enough a CEO can understand it. What will you do next? Accounting simple enough my developer can understand it? Next thing you know, we’ll be collaborating as a team or something.”

Janice Fraser, CEO, Adaptive Path
