I want to start learning HTML. Can you suggest any books or courses for learning HTML? Maybe you have some tips for a beginner. And what you need to know to work with sites other than HTML?


There are the following books on HTML and CSS:

1. B. Lawson, R. Sharp — Learning HTML 5.
2. P. Lubbers — HTML 5 for professionals.
3. C. Mussiano, B. Kennedy — HTML & XHTML. Detailed guide.
4. Ben Henick — HTML and CSS are the way to perfection.
5. Drones.В.-.HTML .5.CSS.3.and.Web 2.0.Development.modern.Web sites.


I advise you to start by studying the entire process of creating a site and creating HTML, find out what tags and attributes are for, their types and applications.
These books will help make your learning process easier: "Learning HTML, XHTML, and CSS (Head First). Elizabeth Robson, Eric Freeman"; "Creating custom websites using PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, CSS and HTML5. Robin Nixon" or "HTML5 and CSS3 for dummies. Chris Minnick, Ed Tittel".


This is a multi-stage process, but once you start, then you yourself will easily determine both the direction of study and auxiliary tools: books, specialized web resources, videos. For example, I finally decided that video tutorials are most convenient for me, on YouTube in particular. Not even a special professional can significantly advance your abilities, knowledge and skills in any field.
The only advice about books - pay attention not to the amount of knowledge presented, but to the convenience of reading, the availability of material for you. :D
