Sams Teach Yourself HTML & XHTML in 10 Minutes, Third Edition is a compact, task-oriented tutorial that shows the beginning Web page author how to perform the most common tasks involved in designing, creating, publishing, and administering Web pages and sites.
The book covers only those HTML tags and technologies that are likely to be used on a beginner's Web page, and it is organized in a logical step-by-step order that reflects the natural progression a new Web page author will follow in developing a Web site.
This edition of the book will be thoroughly revised to make it more accessible for the beginning Windows or Macintosh user, to include more easily accessible reference material, and to refine the book's examples
