|“||In a nutshell, Creating Cool Web Sites with HTML, XHTML, and CSS is an introduction to|
HTML, XHTML, and Cascading Style Sheets. HTML is the HyperText Markup Language, and
it’s the language that enables you to create and publish your own multimedia documents on
the World Wide Web. Millions of users on the Internet and online services such as America
Online, Earthlink, and the Microsoft Network are spending hours each day exploring the world
of the Web from within their Web browser, be it Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, or any of
a variety of other programs. XHTML is the modern “proper” version of HTML and is the future
of the markup language. Cascading Style Sheets are also part of that future, and it’s a rare
modern Web site that doesn’t use at least some element of CSS in its design and layout.
By using all these technologies, you can learn to quickly and easily create attractive documents
that are on the cutting edge of interactive publishing. I went through the pain of learning
HTML back in 1994, the very dawn of the Web era, precisely because I wanted to spread
my ideas to a global audience. For me, learning was hit or miss because the only references
I could find were confusing online documents written by programmers and computer types.
For you, it will be a lot easier. By reading this book and exploring the software and samples
included on the companion Web site, you can learn not only the nuts and bolts of HTML,
XHTML, and CSS, but also quite a lot about how to design and create useful, attractive Web
sites and spread the word about them on the Net.
