A reference for the advanced HTML programmer,
This review is from: HTML 4 Programmer's Reference (Paperback)
Like the title says it IS a reference book, so if you arelooking for a tutorial, this is NOT the book for you. On the other hand however, if you are experienced in HTML then this can be an invaluable reference tool. For example, the major part of the book is an alphabetical listing of all the HTML tags supported up to and including version 4. So, if you know the tags it is an excellent reference to ensure that you use them correctly, with cross browser support.
For me, the books main strength as a reference aid was its excellent coverage of what is/is not supported by the different browsers (Netscape and IE), and which version of the browser was first to support it. I find that this part is essential as it allows me to decide what to include with reference to my intended audience. I have also used the color reference provided fairly frequently, although you could probably get this info else where.
All in all, it is always my first line of HTML reference, and rarely, if ever have I needed to go further afield for HTML information. If you are working with HTML professionally this book (or something very similar) is an essential tool and for under £10 is worth anyone's money.
