"Every day, more and more people want to learn some HTML and CSS. Joining the professional web designers and programmers are new audiences who need to know a little bit of code at work (update a content management system or e-commerce store) and those who want to make their personal blogs more attractive. Many books teaching HTML and CSS are dry and only written for those who want to become programmers, which is why this book takes an entirely new approach. It introduces HTML and CSS in a way that makes them accessible to everyone - hobbyists, students, and professionals - and it's full-color throughout. It utilizes information graphics and lifestyle photography to explain the topics in a simple way that is engaging and boasts a unique structure that allows you to progress through the chapters from beginning to end or just dip into topics of particular interest at your leisure" --Publisher's description.

The book will teach you just very basic code with HTML and CSS. After almost 500 pages of the book you will know how to set up an HTML file and use CSS to make a full function single page website. It is really good book for beginner to understand how exactly coding is about. And more, it is in good color too.

Computer books often look rather like manuals. They can be dense and intimidating (they may even send you to sleep), but this book proves that they do not need to look like that.
