HTML in Easy Steps begins with a brief history of HTML and then explains the basic structure of a modern HTML document. The book describes how to incorporate information about a document within its "head" section before moving on to demonstrate how to add its "body" content.

No previous knowledge of any markup language is required for this book, making it ideal for newbies.
