If you want a book that can show you how to create a simple HTML website quickly and without the distraction of long explanations of HTML code, this is a good book for you. The author, Elizabeth Castro, walks you step-by-step through the two webpage project that is the focus of her book. By using easy to follow instructions and illustrations, Castro gives you the basic knowledge you need to create this simple website.

So what exactly will this book help you accomplish? You will make two HTML webpages and accompanying Cascading Style Sheets (standard for formatting webpages). This two page website will have a home page and one inner page. From just these two webpages you can go on to create an entire website by creating any number of inner pages.

Castro begins by telling you what you will need to complete the project and then she jumps right in with the bare bones HTML webpage. She then starts to add the images and text that are the main focus of the book. She first shows you how to add a simple image to the webpage and how to make a navigation bar from a few small images. She then shows how to use Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to position this navigation bar on the webpage and control the appearance of the navigation links.

Castro then moves on to demonstrate CSS more thoroughly. She starts with formatting and positioning text on a webpage. She then shows how to divide a webpage into sections and how to control the position and appearance of each section with the CSS.

Once you have completed your two webpages, you are ready to publish to the web. Castro discusses hosting your site and FTP software for transferring your webpage onto the web.

Castro has included some useful charts at the end of the book which contain the HTML and CSS code used in the project, HTML color and special character codes. You can find more helpful information and download the project files and images used in this book from the accompanying website, cookwood.com.

Castro has also written many of the Visual QuickStart Guide books for Peachpit Press.
