This practical book teaches the basics of HTML without causing undue strain to your fingers, keyboard, or patience. The included CD-ROM offers examples from most of the chapters for HTML authors working with Unix, Windows, or the Macintosh: Just open your favorite Web browser to study the examples, and your usual editor or word processor to look at the HTML hieroglyphics that make the display possible. The first third of the book deals with basic scripting, the middle third with multimedia, tables, and gateways, and the final third with tools and future prospects. Appendixes touch upon Xmosaic, Winmosaic, MacMosaic, a list of HTML tags and characters, pointers to online and printed information, and a glossary. HTML for Fun and Profit makes the process of learning more about HTML less tedious and more engaging.
