What a disappointment (Could have been so much better),
This review is from: HTML5 & CSS3: Visual QuickStart Guide (Visual QuickStart Guides) (Paperback)
I have read previous versions of the HTML & CSS Quickstart books, and found them to provide a solid background to the subject. I was a little disappointed in the previous version that the examples were not more modern in layout and style. You just have to look at the authors website to see what I mean.
When I read that this latest version included `approximately 125 pages added and substantial updates to (or complete rewrites of) nearly every page' I was most exited and looking forward to new and updated content. However what you get is the same old content without major updates, exactly the same samples, with just a couple of chapters on HTML5 added at the end.
I would get a copy of your local library before committing yourself to the purchase of this title. I for one think that authors should be spending more time on books like this, rather that rolling out the same old stuff with a new cover.
Follow the free guides on W3Schools is my advice.
