Content

HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is the lingua franca of the Web, and like any language, it's constantly evolving. 
That's why Elizabeth Castro has written HTML 4 for the World Wide Web, Fourth Edition: Visual QuickStart Guide, an update to her blockbuster guide to HTML 4.
You'll find all the concise, practical advice--and fun examples--that made the first edition a worldwide bestseller, plus entirely new coverage of debugging, JavaScript, and using tables for page layout, and an expanded section on Cascading Style Sheets.
Like all the books in the Visual QuickStart series, this one breaks even the most complex tasks into easy-to-follow steps illustrated with hundreds of screenshots and the actual code.
The book presumes no prior knowledge of HTML, making it the perfect introduction for beginners.
But its tabbed format and info-packed appendixes (on special HTML characters and Web-safe colors, for example) also make it a handy and indispensable reference for those who build Web pages for a living.
Find out why Amazon called the previous edition a "dream guide" to HTML.

About the Author

Elizabeth Castro began working with the Macintosh in a software development and distribution company called CTA, in Barcelona, Spain. 
Her first project was the translation of an OCR program into English, which was quickly followed by the translation of Aldus PageMaker (version 3!) into Spanish.
Castro's department, Publications, was soon translating other programs from Aldus, as well as software from Agfa, Farallon and the Wheels for the Mind magazine for Apple Computer Spain.
In 1990, Castro founded Pagina Uno together with Oriol Carbo.
One of Pagina Uno's first projects was the translation of The Macintosh Bible, 3rd edition, into Spanish: La Biblia del Macintosh.
It was a great success, thanks to the unerring tone of Arthur Naiman combined with the brilliant translation of Jose Rafael Garcia Bermejo (affectionately known as Coti) and Oriol Carbo, among others.
Pagina Uno published several more Peachpit books about the Macintosh in Spanish and also began to localize Adobe products like Photoshop, Premiere and Dimensions into Spanish.
In 1993, Castro left Pagina Uno (and her beloved Barcelona) and returned to the US to edit the fifth edition of the Mac Bible.

  •     Good training material.... Easy to read/understand.
  •     I'm no computer guru, though I do generally catch on quickly. I found this book to be very easy to read and use. The author doesn't assume her reader is an idiot (with accompanying insulting title), but also doesn't assume that everyone knows computer jargon without definitions.I really, really like this book. It explains so much, and so simply. Many operations I had been doing in a round-about way because I didn't know the easy way will be much simpler now. Anyone wishing to create a web page will find this book indisposable.

  •     very through book and i would recommend it if you need help learning html. i used it as an addition to my textbook for college
  •     I'm a big fan of the 5th and 6th editions, though I've stopped telling my students they need a textbook as there are good online tutorials.
  •     Having been in the HTML world now for a number of years, I am constantly looking for better references and tutorials. Elizabeth Castro has done both with this excellent book on HTML. Again and again I find myself turning to this book to find ways of doing things that I used to do in JavaScript (the "Gee I Didn't Know HTML Would Do That!" syndrome). What I like most is the format of the book; an excellent index allows the reader to easily look up specifics. The book contains some of the following chapters: Text Formatting, Images, Layout, Links, Lists, Tables, Frames (a big problem area for a lot of web programmers, well presented and explained here with some pretty neat hints and tips), Forms, Style Sheets (happily, this is heavily explained with four chapters dedicated to it's many facets), Scripts (wow! An HTML author who finally admits there are other languages out there! The author even spends a little time on the basics of JavaScript, however, she stays true to the focus of the book, only showing enough to wet the appetite before moving on), debugging (this is another biggy rarely covered by HTML authors, again well done here). The author spend some time even on publishing a web site. The problems and solutions to getting: a domain name, web host, transferring files, getting listed on search engines, etc. Several appendices: Tools, Special Symbols, Colors, and Tag Compatibility are covered. The index is very well done. This book is a must buy for any serious web developer.
  •     Excellent Book!
  •     Great item as described. Fast shipping.
  •     If you are starting out in learning HTML, this should be your BIBLE. Easy instructions and explanations.
  •     A few weeks ago I developed a simple strategy for evaluating how-to books about technology. Books about computers should: 1) weigh less than a gallon of milk; 2) cost less than twenty dollars; 3) be updated yearly; 4) come with some kind of technical support via a website or an author email; and 5) Be clear, be clear, be clear. Books that comply with these requirements will achieve every author's dream of being good and popular at the same time. Elizabeth Castro writes books in this manner, and once again her HTML 4 For The World Wide Web (fourth edition) has found its way to the top of the bestseller lists for books about computers and the Internet. The book covers all the important aspects of HTML 4, including the latest updates about Cascading Style Sheets, Level 2. Each chapter gets right to the point and teaches you how to do things: format text, make links, add multimedia, make tables, frames, and forms. You get a handy color chart on the back inside cover of the book; and a whole chapter called "Extras" that teaches lesser-known tricks such as how to password-protect a directory, soup up your mailto links, create buttons with tables, and create and automatic slide show. There are also chapters about scripts, the essentials of JavaScript, and how to get people to visit your page after you've published it on the Web. The Visual Quickstart Guide format itself is an exemplary vehicle for Castro's instructional skills. Every page contains at least one diagram, so that the reader can SEE what's happening on their computer screen. All the lessons are divided into small bite-sized segments which are easy to digest. This strategy, known as "micro-uniting," has been proven to be the most effective way to teach. You can read the book straight through from start to finish, or you can use it as a reference book and jump in to any chapter. After each lesson, you may find yourself saying amazedly: "It's easy to do that!" In just a short time, working with this book, you'll be able to create useful, sophisticated and attractive effects on your web pages. Elizabeth Castro is one of those great how-to writers who anticipate your questions and thus make the learning process fast, efficient, and fun. HTML 4 For The World Wide Web is the ideal book to beginners who want to learn how to make web pages, and for intermediate-level users who want to give their web pages more features and a thoroughly professional look. Paperback, 384 pagesMichael Pastore, Reviewer
  •     I knew nothing about making a website before reading HTML 4 by Elizabeth Castro. I found it to be written in such a way that it was very understandable, even simple. The author also uses good illustrations that shows you what the web page will look like if you write a certian html tag (which is invaluable). But, no matter how well the book has been written, we will still get stuck sometimes. Knowing this, Elizabeth Castro has not left us out there in the cyber wilderness on our own; she not only has a website where you can post your question for others to help you (or you may find your own question already answered there); but she also will answer your questions HERSELF, via e-mail. Yes, she has definately made learning html not only easy, but I really had fun with it too. (surprised me!)
