5.0 out of 5 stars A real must buy., 29 July 2001
By A Customer
Although not a beginers guide I would still recommend a beginner buy this book. It is a "reference" book not a "learn to". You will certainly learn things from it but its main aim is to help you not teach you. A great book to supplement online tutorials and books. Ive had it since 1996 and still use it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent introduction to advanced Web design, 13 Feb 2001
By A Customer
This is an excellent book for anyone already familiar with HTML and who wants to expand their knowledge into more advanced areas. It not only explains the theory behind features like JavaScript or CSS, but also covers practical topics like browser incompatibilities.

4.0 out of 5 stars Indispensable, but no CSS2/XHTML/Apache2 - needs updating, 13 July 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Webmaster in a Nutshell (In a Nutshell (O'Reilly)) (Paperback)
Excellent reference, used daily. Could be perfect...
Includes complete texts of the JavaScript and PHP4 Pocket References, both concise and to-the-point. Needs coverage of CSS2 (Meyer's new edition?), XHTML and XML. Useful stuff on Perl CGI and Apache 1.3 configuration.
The 3rd edition was out of date when it came out, as was the 2nd... Come on O'Reilly, where's the 4th, fatter edition?

4.0 out of 5 stars Fine for starters, 17 July 2003
By 
Graham Phillips (Cambridge, UK) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This book gives a brief overview of the information that a webmaster might need, but obviously one book cannot contain enough details for everyone. Each chapter reads like a précis of a different complete book (and perhaps it is). When I was new to this web lark I found it very useful, but now that I have progressed (a little) I find I need to know a lot more than I can find here.
The term "webmaster" means different things to different people. In practice, I guess that not many people are concerned with both the content (html, css etc) and the delivery (Apache etc) of it. One use for this book is to give 'content providers' enough background to speak with 'server administrators' and vice versa.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great "fill-in-the-blanks-reference"., 29 Dec 1999
Even for those previously experiened with HTML and CSS it is still a book worth every cent. It shows you the basics of some fancier stuff like XML and CGI and offers some piece of advice on how to create and maintain webpages. However, if you are looking for literature that can guide you through your first homepage - try another book from the *excellent* O'Reilley series (like one on HTML).

By A Customer
This book is superb for anyone who wants a general guide and introduction to web design, development and support. It covers just about everything you need to know about designing and running a web site. This is a excellent book and I recommend it to anyone - from beginner to professional.
