Practical Website Design for Absolute Beginners demystifies HTML and CSS using short step by step projects. Each chapter contains practical projects for creating customized websites, and the book provides many useful web page and website templates that can be easily adapted for use by the reader
Practical Website Design for Absolute Beginners avoids chapters of code theory and takes the approach of placing the code and its explanation within each project where it is most relevant. The book gives advice on the design aspect of web pages, with one chapter on producing attractive and useful websites and another on Search Engine Optimization
The book includes a full description of how to migrate a website to an external host, an important subject that is often omitted in other manuals

Learn the fundamentals of modern web design, rather than relying on CMS programs, such as WordPress or Joomla!. You will be introduced to the essentials of good design and how to optimize for search engines. You will discover how to register a domain name and migrate a website to a remote host. Because you will have built the web pages yourself, you will know exactly how HTML and CSS work. You have will complete control over your websites and their maintenance.
Practical Website Design for Absolute Beginners centers around introducing small amounts of new code in short practical chapters and provides many website templates that can be easily adapted for your own websites. Each chapter builds on the templates created in the previous chapter. You are provided with a practical project to complete in most chapters, and taught to produce practical web pages right from the start.
In the first chapter you will install and configure a free text editor, then you will produce the structure for your first web page. You will then gradually learn to create more sophisticated and increasingly practical web pages and websites.
In this book you will be encouraged by means of a series of achievable goals, and you will be rewarded by the knowledge that you are learning something valuable and really worthwhile. You will not have to plow through daunting chapters of disembodied code theory because the code is described and explained in context within each project. Because each project is fully illustrated, you will see clearly what you are expected to achieve as you create each web page.
