About the Author
Jon Duckett published his first Web site in 1996 while studying for a BSc (Hons) in Psychology at Brunel University, London. Since then he has helped create a wide variety of Web sites and has co–written more than ten programming–related books on topics from ASP to XML (via many other letters of the alphabet) covering diverse aspects of Web programming including design, architecture, and coding.
After graduation, Jon worked for Wrox Press first in its Birmingham (UK) offices for three years and then in Sydney, Australia, for another year. He is now a freelance developer and consultant based in a leafy suburb of London, working for a range of clients spread across three continents.
When not stuck in front of a computer screen, Jon enjoys listening to music and writing.

I still believe the author has produced a good work in a complex field; if this issue could be clarified I would reconsider my rating.
Don't be put off from the size as you can just flick through to find the sections that you need help with.
Overall a good guide for people interested in building webpages in HTML/XHTML and CSS.

But my advice is regarding the kindle version. The formatting is Terrible!! Whoever did this obviously just copied and pasted it because its all over the place.
No effort was put into it whatsoever. You still get the message from the book but reading it is far from pleasant, text size varies A Lot! Lines don't align.
Download the sample for yourself before you buy. I wish I had.
Its just really really poor. And shame on whoever did this so called conversion. I realise its an older book, but come on at least put in some effort.
I just have to ask did anyone proof read this before they put it up there?
If you do want this book get a hard copy and steer clear of the kindle version
Yes there is a lot of repetition and a bit of wandering back and forth across subjects, and yes it can be annoying. But most books in this genre are guilty of that. This one is no better nor worse than the others. Nice reference and appendix. Recommended.
Could have used some color, especially the HTML color appendix. I would also suggest, if it becomes possible and soon I would think it should, getting an updated addition of this book. This information is certainly up to date but there is much "errata" or errors. One must visit the Wrox web site to gather these "updates" to ovoid confusion. Also, there are several errors not covered in the errata that even I was able to discover. This, however, is part of reading technical books. I don't think anyone purchasing this title is looking for a literary gem.
If I had it to do over I would still get this book. If I lost it I would replace it. And you do stop getting creped out by the author's picture staring at you after a few days.
