Sebastopol, CA—"To build today's modern web applications you need a solid foundation in HTML and CSS," says coauthor Elisabeth Robson. You want to learn HTML so you can finally create those web pages you've always wanted, so you can communicate more effectively with friends, family, fans, and fanatic customers. You also want to do it right so you can actually maintain and expand your web pages over time so they work in all browsers and mobile devices. Oh, and if you've never heard of CSS, that's okay—we won't tell anyone you're still partying like it's 1999—but if you're going to create web pages in the 21st century then you'll want to know and understand CSS.

"Head First HTML and CSS has been the go-to book for professionals and students alike," says coauthor Eric Freeman. "Now, newly updated with all the latest standards, Head First HTML and CSS, 2nd edition continues that tradition."

"In Head First HTML and CSS, we take you from first principles to advanced web construction," says Robson. "We also get you ready for the next step: building modern web applications with the latest elements and APIs, which is covered in our other recent title, Head First HTML5 Programming."

Best of all, with Head First HTML and CSS, 2nd Edition, you'll learn HTML and CSS in a way that won't put you to sleep. If you've read a Head First book, you know what to expect: a visually rich format designed for the way your brain works. Using the latest research in neurobiology, cognitive science, and learning theory, this book will load HTML and CSS into your brain in a way that sticks.

So what are you waiting for? Leave those other dusty books behind and come join us in Webville. Your tour is about to begin.
