HTML Complete Course
The editing on this book is so poor that I was constantly rechecking instructions on how to proceed. When I tried to email the publisher and/or author I got no response. I was finally helped by a techie who had sympathy for my plight and got me through the rough spots. If the editing had been better I think I could recommend this book. As it is I cannot and will not!

The first computer book that made me want to write a review!
As someone who writes a little HTML now and then, I've accumulated several books on HTML going back to Version 3.2.
This is the best one yet, because it takes you one step at a time through each facet of HTML, letting you understand the various tags and attributes by having you use all of them in a logical progression until you have created a complete site.
I'm using the book basically as a review, while learning to write using XHTML, using CSS to describe all the formatting--which is not the way I learned the first time.
The lessons are fun, and easy to follow. I would have given it 5 stars, if there were not a few mistakes here and there that should have been caught in the editing process.

Today the teacher becomes the student!
You know how to tell is a book is a good learning tool? Take the book and give it to someone with little or no experience in the subject matter, have them read and try the material and exercise and see if they understand what they are doing. That's exactly what I did with this book, I had a couple of people with little web design experience try random exercises and they were able to design and comprehend the material.
I spent several hours working with the files on the cd and the labs, and when I finished I was well on the way to creating websites. The book uses Notepad as the editor and while this works very well, I used HTML Notepad as my editor and it worked as well. In future release the author may want to include that in the cd.
Everything is included from basic tags to frames and forms. You be working with Style sheets to image maps and logos and just about everything in between. This is one of the best classroom books I have ever seen or worked with and in future HTML Class I teach this is going too considered as the book of choice.
The cd included has other utilizes for web design as well as all the files need to perform the labs. If you are serious about starting a career in Web Design, than take some time to check out this book.
Overall this is simply of the best books for HTML and I highly recommend it.
