HTML, a shorthand for Hyper Text Markup Language, is one of the most fundamental building blocks of the Web.
This handbook is aimed at a vast audience.
- First, the beginner. I explain HTML from zero in a succinct but comprehensive way, so you can use this book to learn HTML from the basics.
- Then, the professional. HTML is often considered like a secondary thing to learn. It might be given for granted.
Even if you don't write HTML in your day to day work, knowing how HTML works can help save you some headaches when you need to understand it from time to time, for example while tweaking a web page.
