Creating a Website: The Missing Manual

Amazon.com | Kindle (US) | Kindle (UK) | Book Depository (free worldwide shipping)

Creating a Website introduces students to creating correct HTML and CSS code without overwhelming them with details of uncommon or rarely used features. It is well laid out, enabling students to find example code for their particular requirements with ease, making it a useful reference book. However, it is not a tutorial or 'howto' book, so it needs using as part of planned lesson activities or independent projects.

What Happens When You Click a Link?

This video explains step by step what happens when you enter a URL in your web browser. It covers looking up the IP address using the HOSTS file or DNS, connecting to the destination machine using TCP/IP, and using HTTP to fetch the page. It does a good job of breaking down the process into a series of simple steps that demystify this process for students (hopefully!).
