About the book

HTML in easy steps instructs you how to create exciting web pages using HTML 4.01 specification. It contains separate chapters on all features of the HyperText Markup Language (HTML). This popular title is updated for Web 2.0 and includes examples and screenshots that illustrate each aspect of HTML.

HTML in easy steps begins with a brief history of HTML then explains the basic structure of a modern HTML document. The book describes how to incorporate information about a document within its ‘head’ section before moving on to demonstrate how to add its ‘body’ content. Examples show how Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) can control the appearance of the document content. You will learn how to create web pages to display text, images, lists, tables, hyperlinks, forms, and multimedia with Windows Media Player, Java Applets, Flash movies, Real Player and QuickTime. You need have no previous knowledge of any markup language so it’s ideal if you’re a newcomer to web pages. Each chapter builds your knowledge of HTML.
