Build Web Sites Like a Pro
Build Your Own Web Site The Right Way Using HTML & CSSSitePoint recently announced the release of the 2nd edition to Build Your Own Web Site The Right Way Using HTML & CSS widely regarded as the definitive beginner's guide to building web sites.
The book's author, Ian Lloyd, has used his understanding of cutting edge advances in web development to bolster the book, so it's compatible with all web browsers (including Internet Explorer 8) and incorporates brand new tools such as Google Analytics.
By following this step-by-step guide to building an example web site, readers will start from scratch, learning which basic tools they need to get started (text editors, web browsers and FTP clients), and by the end of the book they'll be ready to add some real flair to their fully functioning web site.
SitePoint co-founder, Matt Mickiewicz, commented, "SitePoint has always promoted Web Standards, and we were sorely disappointed with the quality of information being offered in beginner books on HTML & CSS. With this title now in its 2nd edition, we've giving everyone a chance to learn Web Development the right way, from the very beginning."
Ian Lloyd works as a senior Web designer for Nationwide Building Society where he's largely responsible for promoting the Web accessibility ethic. Ian is also a member of the Web Standards project, which aims to promote best-practices among Web Developers and software companies.
