Jennifer Niederst is just the person you want to write a book like this. Many readers of this page will already know who she is, but since this book is aimed at absolute beginners a short introduction may be in order.

Originally a graphic designer, in 1993 Niederst became one of the very first web designers when she worked on the world's first commercial website (O'Reilly & Associates' Global Network Navigator, which is no longer in publication but you can see samples of it on Niederst's own website if you want; write me for the URL). Since then she's been one of the best-known web designers around and she's written other books on the topic -- notably _Web Design in a Nutshell_, which I highly recommend you get as a followup to this one (but wait for the new second edition, due out in October 2001). Since Al Gore didn't even _invent_ the Internet until 1993, that makes Niederst the nearest thing there is to an "old-timer" in what is, after all, a pretty new profession.

Niederst has said in interviews that this book is the one she wished she'd had to give her web-design students. It won't take you long to see why; it's painstakingly thorough and detailed, just the ticket for somebody who has never written a speck of HTML code before and is a little fuzzy on just what this "Internet" thing is.

But it's also helpful to people at other stages of knowledge. The coverage (mostly HTML and graphics, with a little bit of appetite-whetting overview at the end about more advanced techniques like cascading style sheets, JavaScript, and XML) is so complete that if, like me, you learned this stuff on your own, it will fill in _lots_ of gaps in your education. (Over the last year or two I've gotten pretty proficient with text but I knew almost zilch about graphics until I read this book.) And even if you already know all this stuff cold, this book will probably still be handy as a reference and a source of helpful advice.

Then, too, it's also a handy rough-and-ready guide to the sorts of application software you might want to acquire if you're getting seriously into web design. Niederst not only introduces the major players among authoring tools and graphics packages, but steps through her examples more than once to show you how they work in, e.g., Dreamweaver and GoLive.

The style is breezy and chatty but with no loss of accuracy. You'll find out why Niederst thinks "web design is cool" and you'll learn some of "Jen's pet peeves" (e.g. spinning-globe graphics and rainbow bars), but you'll also get a thorough and accessible introduction to the nuts and bolts of web design.

If you're just getting started on the creation of web pages, this is the book to use first. As I noted above, you'll probably also want to get Niederst's _Nutshell_ book as a sequel. After that, you'll be well qualified to decide what else you need.

Although I have not plowed through this entire book yet, it is shaping up as one of the books I've been looking for to tie up all the different threads that now make up the task of creating a good website. I may never actually create my business website all on my own, but at least I will have familiarity with the various tools that are currently being used so I can intelligently discuss and understand what the professionals are recommending. One of the toughest parts of learning any new technology these days is the constant improvement and changes going on. It's impossible to guess what may become standard and what may be obsolete by the time I finish the book. Books like this at least give an average person like me a fighting chance to keep as current as possible without continuous formal education.

Maybe just one more favorable review about this excellent web design book. This is the book you need if you want a very good foundation for your web site/page building experience. Starting with the basics such as beginning HTML coding (even if you never coded before) to pop-ups, the author carefully walks the reader through many of the complexities of good web design. Examples using Dreamweaver, GoLive, and Frontpage are helpful (although Adobe's GoLive 6 which is now available is quite a bit different than the GoLive 4 in the book) if you're interested in using an advanced design program. After completion of this book you will realize you learned something and didn't get ripped off.

Although the book is positioned as a Beginner's Guide you really need to have some basic understanding or feel for html coding to make the most of it. After using it for about 2 years I finally think I know what I'm looking at. Ms. Niederst explains some things really well, e.g., text, inserts, use of graphics, html limitations and tables. Her tie ins to FrontPage, Go Live and Dreamweaver are hard to follow (for me, anyway) because they do not match the Dreamweaver version I have. But, I've adjusted to these differences. I use the book every time I work on my website and I'm happy to have it.

This would have been a great book way back when it was current which I suspect was at least 15 years ago. Dont waste your time unless you have a fascination with the hisory of what used to be relevent relating to the internet and wed design.

I have used this book to teach HTML to 14 year olds and adults. Well-organized. My go-to handbook.
I'm right in the middle of the book and am really enjoying it. It is definitely for beginners, with introductions to html and CSS. Experienced users would want a different book. The language is clear and easy to understand. I highly recommend it.
