O’Reilly has announced the release of “Learning Web Design: A Beginner’s Guide to HTML, Graphics, and Beyond” (US$39.95), by best-selling author, designer, and teacher Jennifer Niederst. The book “starts from the very beginning — defining the Internet, the Web, browsers, and URLs. By the time readers have finished the book, they’ll have a solid foundation in HTML, graphics, and design principles that they can immediately put to use creating effective Web pages.” The second edition adds expanded coverage of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) and more hands-on activities and interactive content.
