HTML Pocket Reference

Book Description

In this pocket reference, Jennifer Niederst, the author of the best-selling Web Design in a Nutshell, delivers a concise guide to every HTML tag. Each tag entry includes:

  • Detailed information on the tag's attributes

  • Support information on browsers such as Netscape Navigator, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Opera, and WebTV

  • HTML 4.0 support information, including whether the tag is deprecated in the current spec

In addition to tag-by-tag descriptions, you'll find useful charts on such topics as:
  • Character entities

  • Decimal-to-hexadecimal conversions

  • Color names

Niederst also provides context for the tags, indicating which tags are grouped together and bare-bones examples of how standard web page elements are constructed. This pocket reference is targeted at web designers and web authors and is likely to be the most dog-eared book on every web professional's desk.
