Creating beautifully coded HTML Web pages that perform predictably and consistently across all browsers and platforms can be a daunting task, but best-selling author Elizabeth Castro knows that most readers don't need an encyclopedic reference, just simple instructions for creating their first Web page. This compact guide delivers! Rather than explaining every tag and option, she demonstrates the quickest, easiest, smartest route to creating that first Web page. Each short section walks readers through the construction of a single phase or component, so they learn how to plan a site, prepare Web images, insert links and graphics, and publish their finished pages to the Web. Project-based, step-by-step instructions and large, full-color screen shots make the information instantly accessible, and the author's clear, straightforward style takes the reader from a standing start to finished site quickly and easily.
