5.0 out of 5 stars I'll be back, 2 Aug. 2013
This review is from: HTML5: The Missing Manual (Missing Manuals) (Paperback)
I bought this book because I saw that five on the cover and said to myself I been gone that long?

I've always appreciated "the missing manual" series. And for decades O'Reilly has been my choice of publisher. So it was a no-brainer purchasing this book written by Matthew MacDonald.

Why was I surprised to find out that HTML5 is not real! Okay it's real but it's real like English. There are two camps when speaking English; one wants you to use old timey latten construction; the other camp says anything goes as long as it's understandable. That is the thrust of the purpose of this book to let you know that HTML is back but anything goes as long as it is understandable.

I've learned a lot from this book and it is saved my bacon several times. However if you're new to HTML you might want to read one of the old timey classics before tackling the new freedom of HTML 5.

I do not dog year or underlying books; however I have sure worn this one out and still have not finished with it by a long shot. If you do not have a copy of this book what have you been doing?

The CD is not missing from this manual as the information and examples from the chapters can be accessed online.
