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.
