Main description

HTML is a core technology in Web site development and, now that Microsoft Office now supports HTML, more users than ever will need a comprehensive reference and tutorial. All current versions of HTML will remain the standard for at least two years, so this book will have a long shelf-life. Author has been using the previous edition of the textbook for his HTML classes and has incorporated valuable student input and proven teaching methods into this edition. Covers the latest technologies--XML, SXL, ASP, CDF, and CSS2--as well as the new versions of broswers from Netscape and Microsoft.
