Hi everyone, who can tell me if it's easy to learn HTML on my own and if there are any books more suitable for a beginner.

Any feedback is appreciated.

Thanks

Basic HTML is pretty easy to learn.

But to create fully functioning and styled pages also takes JavaScript and CSS. Those subjects can get deep pretty quickly. But almost any book targeted at novices can get you started.

(Historical note: I originally learned HTML around 1990 from the 1st edition of the HTML For Dummies book.)

P.S. Make sure that whatever book you choose is current with coverage of HTML5.

Hello,


rankly Speaking, I didn't learn HTML from a particular book, but I learn it from practicing online. Once you came to know about basic things about HTML then you just need to deploy it. And I don't think so we need to learn HTML, just start it with practice you will be good enough to draw basic structure of an HTML page within week.

I learned HTML from online portals.

For your reference I am sharing the links below.

Learn to code - for free
https://www.freecodecamp.org

W3Schools Online Web Tutorials

Above mentioned portals will help you learn html and also you can simultaneously run the code in there compiler itself.

Happy learning

W3Schools Online Web Tutorials helped me a lot. It is aright choice for a start!
Also, a lot of useful information can be found in the programmer forums
