Reference Scope

This chapter is unique in the book because it is written to serve as a reference for all the tags included in the HTML 4.0 recommendation, as published by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). It is a one-stop catalog of each tag, including the tag's attributes, syntax, and examples of uses. By necessity, the chapter covers a large amount of information, but you'll soon come to appreciate the value of having all the relevant facts about all HTML tags—together with tips on how to use them—right at your fingertips.

Note

This chapter covers only the tags included in the recommended HTML 4.0 Document Type Definition (DTD), as published by the World Wide Web Consortium in April 1998. Browser-specific extensions to HTML 4.0 are beyond the scope of this chapter, but may be covered elsewhere in the book. The <LAYER> tag introduced by Netscape Communications Corporation, for example, is discussed in detail in Chapter 24, "Introduction to Dynamic HTML," and Chapter 25, "Advanced Netscape Dynamic HTML."

For the most up-to-date status of HTML 4.0, consult http://www.w3.org/TR/PR-html40/, where you will find links to the most current version of the standard and the version just prior to that.
