Web pages are written in a friendly, accessible language that is straightforward and easy to learn. This language, the HyperText Markup Language, usually called by its initialism, HTML, is the subject of this book. If you were writing HTML at the turn of the millennium, you most likely had a copy of the original Hip Pocket Guide to HTML 4. This is a fully updated and modernized edition of that same book.
