Whom This Book Is For
To get the most out of this book, you’ll need to have an understanding of HTML and how to create a static web page. You don’t need to have any programming experience. This book will also suit you if you have some programming experience already and would like to turn your hand to web programming. You will know a fair amount about computing concepts, but maybe not as much about web technologies.
Whoever you are, we hope that this book lives up to your expectations.
