"An excellent reference for anyone who wants to create a Web page."
One of the charms of the Web is that just about anyone can (and does) create a Web page. "It's cinchy," they tell you. And they're right. But it always helps to have a book handy to help you with some of the not-so-cinchy parts. And it amazes me how many Web design or publishing books just don't get it. Fortunately, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Creating a Web Page isn't one of those books. Despite its long name (which I refuse to type again), the book is very good.
Paul does a fair job of covering the subject in a friendly, engaging tone. Yes, this book has life to it. It has personality. The humor isn't forced or condescending. Paul covers a lot of ground quickly and I had to remind myself that Idiot's Guides, like Dummies books, are references. So, where I thought some things were skipped over quickly, the truth is that as a reference the book works well. (True beginners who need handholding and tutorials should turn elsewhere.)
I suppose I could gripe that the book doesn't cover XML, an advanced topic for Web page creation, and one that I've yet to see a decent book on, anyway. That's a minor quibble, though; as far as I'm concerned, XML is just a Microsoft conspiracy to yank Web page creation out of the hands of you and me, the mere mortals of the Internet. No, for basic Web page creation and publication, you really can't beat this book. --Dan GookinFrom the Publisher:
