8.7. HTML Resources in This Book
In addition to the detailed descriptions of HTML tags and their use
in the following eight chapters, there are several appendices at the
end of the book that provide a quick reference for the entire set of
HTML tags, sliced a number of different ways.
- Appendix A, "HTML Elements"
This is an alphabetical listing of all the currently available HTML
tags mentioned in this book. It includes all the tags listed in the
HTML 4.01 specification (including the complete list of attributes
for each tag), tags in current use that are not specifically
mentioned in the specification, and all browser-specific tags and
attributes. It also provides chapter and page references so you can
look up the detailed information for each tag quickly.
- Appendix B, "List of Attributes"
This is a listing of every available attribute as published by the
HTML 4.01 specification. It indicates in which tags the attribute can
be used, whether it is optional or required, and whether it has been
deprecated by the HTML 4.01 specification.
- Appendix C, "Deprecated Tags"
This appendix lists all the tags and attributes that have been
officially deprecated by the W3C in the HTML 4.01 specification.
Deprecated tags are still supported by browsers for backward
compatibility but are discouraged from use. Most attributes are
deprecated in favor of style sheet controls. The table also lists
recommended substitutes when noted by the W3C.
- Appendix D, "Proprietary Tags"
This appendix contains a list of tags supported only in Internet
Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
- Appendix E, "CSS Support Chart"
This appendix lists all elements in the Cascading Style Sheets
specification and notes how well Navigator and Internet Explorer
- Appendix F, "Character Entities"
This is a chart of standard, proposed, and generally supported
character entities for HTML. Character entities are introduced
in Chapter 10, "Formatting Text".
