Breaking into HTML

I am still in the midst of investigating many blogs, podcasts, the wonderful world of HTML. In computing, HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is a markup language designed for the creation of web pages with hypertext and other information to be displayed in a web browser, it is a code. HTML is used to structure information, denoting certain text as headings, paragraphs, lists and so on. It can be used to describe, to some degree, the appearance and semantics of a document. On the HTML front, I have been playing about with many templates and formats with a view to possibly starting a site for my subject. One book I have found particularly helpful was
HTML, In Easy Steps’ Mike McGrath
McGrath gives an excellent coverage of all the basics of using HTML to improve the content, aesthetics and format of your site. I found this guide very easy on the eye and very informative in explaining how to use and understand HTML. You can access the summary here.

Hi Tess. It's good to see someone else looking under the bonnet, as it where. I know that the whole Web2.0 ethos is to make tools that don't need any technical skills, but I find it incredibly useful to know a bit of HTML. It's important to get an up-to-date book like this one - one that has CSS in it.
