(Sure, it's a plug--complain to the listowner if you want ;-)
Well, we like the _HTML for Dummies Quick Reference_, second
edition, and _Dummies 101: HTML_ -- of course, we co-authored
both. Seriously, we're pretty proud of them, and they both
won awards (Excellence and Distinguished Technical
Communication, respectively), at the 1997 International
STC Tech Pubs competition.
Also, look for _Mastering HTML 4_, Ray and Ray, in the
next couple of months. In addition to HTML, D-HTML,
HTML-based help, multimedia and applets, database publishing,
and more, there's also a 300+ page reference section.
The CD includes eval copies of HTML Transit, Drumbeat,
NetObjects Fusion, HTML-based Help tools, Corel's Webmaster
Suite, Macromedia's Backstage Internet Director, ColdFusion,
and more other stuff than we can remember right
We know that a number of list members have the
Quick Reference first edition--they might be a little
more objective. ;-)
