Praise for other books by Eric Freeman and Elisabeth Robson

“I literally love this book. In fact, I kissed this book in front of my wife.”

Satish Kumar

Head First HTML and CSS is a thoroughly modern introduction to forward-looking practices in web page markup and presentation. It correctly anticipates readers’ puzzlements and handles them just in time. The highly graphic and incremental approach precisely mimics the best way to learn this stuff: make a small change and see it in the browser to understand what each new item means.”

Danny Goodman, author of Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Guide

“The Web would be a much better place if every HTML author started off by reading this book.”

L. David Baron, Technical Lead, Layout & CSS, Mozilla Corporation http://dbaron.org/

“My wife stole the book. She’s never done any web design, so she needed a book like Head First HTML and CSS to take her from beginning to end. She now has a list of websites she wants to build—for our son’s class, our family...If I’m lucky, I’ll get the book back when she’s done.”

David Kaminsky, Master Inventor, IBM

Frank Moore, Web designer and developer
