Sams Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours is a well-organized, clearly written, and generously illustrated tutorial that teaches beginners how to quickly create great-looking web pages using HTML5 and CSS3.
With a practical, jargon-free focus on quickly getting web pages created and published to the web, the book’s 24 one-hour lessons carefully guide the reader through each step involved in creating, enhancing, and maintaining web sites of all types and sizes.
The ninth edition of Sams Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours brings the entire book in line with the HTML5 and CSS3 specifications and capabilities and includes fresh material and examples that take full advantage of the book’s full-color layout and design.
Anyone who completes the lessons in this book can have his or her web pages be among those that appear on the Internet. In fact, within the first two lessons in this book, someone with no previous HTML experience at all can have a web page ready to go online.
If you like learning by doing, this is the book for you. It organizes lessons in the basics of HTML5 and CSS3 into simple steps and then shows you exactly how to tackle each step. Many of these HTML code examples are accompanied by pictures of the output produced by the code. You see how it’s done, you read a clear, concise explanation of how it works, and then you immediately do the same thing with your own page. A few minutes later, you’re on to the next step.
