Look beyond that though and you can apply the same technique on your own ( probably better) ...

Web Design in a Nutshell

Undeterred I began to read and soon discovered that it is not a book for reading, but more a desktop reference. The information contained on the pages is informative, accurate and covers everything from creating a site, that's accessible to a variety of browsers, right through to using multimedia and interactivity in a site. There's also an excellent section on HTML. The ...
