What’s inside?

Who should read this book?

Although this book is meant for HTML5 beginners, it isn’t totally comprehensive. As a result, we do assume some prior knowledge of HTML. If you are completely new to web development, SitePoint’s Build Your Own Website The Right Way Using HTML and CSS may be a better book for you.

As we progress through the book, we’ll tackle some more advanced topics, such as APIs and offline applications. To follow these sections, you should be familiar with HTML and the fundamentals of JavaScript and the Document Object Model (DOM). It’s unnecessary to have deep knowledge of JavaScript.

Still, you should understand event handling, JavaScript data types, and control structures such as while loops and if-else conditionals. We’ll keep our script examples simple, though, and explain them line by line. If you’re unfamiliar with JavaScript, you may like to read SitePoint’s Simply JavaScript by Kevin Yank for an introduction.
