Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0471175757, Paperback)

Every serious Web master and Web designer should have the most current edition of the HTML Sourcebook on his or her desk. This book manages to touch on nearly every aspect of Web site design and maintenance, all in a single volume. The bulk of this book is devoted to HTML 3.2, including proprietary extensions. Each tag has a full explanation, including an example of how it is used and how it interacts with other tags. The authors make sure to point out cases where Netscape and Microsoft implementations differ, as well as cases where browsers have bugs that affect the rendering of specific tags. A fair amount of attention is given to advanced topics such as cascading style sheets, scripting, and internationalization.

Aspects of the Web that most people take for granted are covered here in great detail. There are whole chapters discussing Multipart Internet Mail Extensions (MIME), Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), the Common Gateway Interface (CGI), and the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). These topics may seem arcane, but knowledge of them is essential for Web masters.

The book's technical content is balanced with useful chapters covering concepts of site design and construction, graphics and images, and Web site management. If you're creating a large scale Web site, you'll find advice on planning, designing, testing, and even promoting your site. Although written clearly and concisely, the HTML Sourcebook is not really a book for beginners--there is much more information here than a person creating Web pages for fun will ever need to know.
