This book is suited towards Beginner/Intermediate level, contains all the information you need to know about HTML, CSS, PHP, CGI/PERL, XML and much more. I'd suggest this book to anyone. It is a truly excellent book.

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.

Excellent reference, used daily. Could be perfect...
The 3rd edition was out of date when it came out, as was the 2nd...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?

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.
