If you new to HTML, HTML5, then this book will help you get up to speed. As a database dev and programmer, I have not had to worry too much about HTML until this year. I bought several books and this is clear, well laid out and gives examples that seem to fit real world problems.

There is a bit of CSS at the back - but grab the CSS missing manual as well if you need to develop a responsive website.

A very useful book, both for studying and as a reference 30 Mar 2014
By Andrew Jonca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I find the manual truly useful: lucid explanations, nicely thought out examples. Moreover, the online support allowing me to experiment with the examples code is very useful and superbly organized.
I often complain that programming books spend too much space explaining simple details and gloss over difficult issues. Another problem with such books is that they include programming examples that have too much dependence between chapters: you cannot study code in, say, chapter 6 without going over all details in chapter 3, 4, 5. This is usually too cumbersome approach.
However, this manual allows you to study any portion of it and select what you currently need most - very nice flow.

All in all - I would strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to study HTML, and who wants to have nice reference to it.

The best html5 book I've read so far 13 Feb 2014
By Gregory Francis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I gave it a 4, almost gave it a 5. But 5 is reserved for near perfection.

Of course, I've only read two HTML5 books. But this is the better. The other is Murach's on CSS3 and HTML5. Not bad, but not as good as this one.

These Missing Manual books are fantastic. They are very comprehensive and full of useful information and examples. Matthew McDonald has a clear and accessible writing style. The jQuery one is very good and the CSS3 book is even better.

About my only complaint is that this book did not contain the tutorials like the other books do. I'm not sure why they were left out, but it is a fairly big issue for me.

Review of “HTML5: The Missing Manual” | MacDonald, M. 24 Jan 2014
By norcyn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you are looking to learn more about HTML5, then this book offered by O’Reilly Media, will definitely get you up and running in no time at all. “HTML5: The Missing Manual” is written by Matthew MacDonald, an experienced technical writer and programmer on and off the web. What I particularly love about this manual is the online resource made available to us for downloading all the files needed to follow along. Furthermore, you’ll find an extensive list of links to all the web sites referenced throughout the manual.

In Part One, you will discover how to structure your pages and seasoned HTML programmers will certainly appreciate the comparisons between the old and the new. Next, in Part Two, you will find the cool stuff! Have fun working with web forms, audio, video, drawing and animating with the Canvas, and of course styling with CSS3. Lastly, in Part Three, you will learn all about web apps including how to create offline applications and some JavaScript tricks. For those of you who are brand new to HTML programming, you may opt to start with the Appendixes. In Appendix A & B, MacDonald provides an introduction to both CSS and JavaScript.

You will definitely appreciate the browser support information provided – think of all the time you will save not having to do the research yourself. MacDonald suggests you go ahead and get started right away with developing web sites using HTML5 because even browsers as old as Internet Explorer 6, which is 10 years old and full of quirks, can display HTML5 documents.

Great Book - Very clearly explains the whole HTML5 concept 10 Jun 2014
By Mark - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a great book and really helped me understand the new HTML5 formatting, rules, and the transition from older HTML coding styles. I would recommend it to anyone experience in web development who wants to have a really firm grasp of the whole HTML5 concept.
