Format: Paperback
This book is very easy to read.
The chapters are very well arranged and cover the subjects in a sequential manner.
It starts with plain HTML formatting and later on introduces CSS, after we are familiar with the HTML tags. This arrangement allows to learn easily to build your pages without complicating from the very beggining. If you are familiar with HTML you can just skip a few chapters but I recomed reading them anyway, because there is always something usefull to learn from them.
It's an excellent companoin book to have near the computer when writing HTML or even dynamic pages.

I bought this book hoping that it would teach me to build a correct XHTML web site. I must say that I'm very pleased with it but probably for the wrong reasons. It does focus on XHTML but not as much as one would expect. Being XHTML the current version of HTML it is incredible the amount of text dedicated to cover HTML 4. Although the autor's point out once or twice that this or that procedure is not correct anymore, they keep insisting on using those deprecated methods on many of the examples troughout the book. On the other hand the book covers so many subjects that are helpfull even if they only scratch the surface. Usability, Accessibility, XML and and other essential subjects are addressed in a way that is very easy to understand and gives you a start on those subjects.
Good if you are a novice web developer, not very helpfull if you already know the basics and want to learn Strict XHTML.

This book is OK, but it really spreads itself too thin. I have tried and failed to find the information I need in it more times than I can remember.
Maybe it's ok if you're just starting out and you need a reference, but even then you might want to look at other options first.

I bought this book to update my rather basic knowledge of website development to the latest standards and to acquire insight into the more formal aspects of HTML and CSS. This book was to help me in an ambitious, forthcoming update for my photography portfolio website, [...]
The book delivered everything I had hoped for. I read it front to back in (nearly) one go, scanning the parts that were already familiar and reading carefully some of the more advanced techniques. The book is extremely well laid out and follows a logical path of progression, so it is easy to pick only the topics that you need. I would recommend reading the whole book anyway - there is something useful and new in every chapter.
I am not entirely sure that it is ideally suited to those with absolutely no previous HTML knowledge. However, for people with a basic, limited knowledge of HTML it is an invaluable guide to extending and updating that expertise. You also want to keep it by your desk as a useful reference.

I have a bit of experiencing writing Web pages but wanted to learn how to progress in a more structured way, taking in CSS.
I bought this book and started reading from the beginning. Boy, is it repetitive. It made me wonder whether the author had been paid per word. I read the first two chapters and decided that was enough. Thankfully, Amazon runs a great returns policy.
In summary, as a reference book for dipping into on an ad-hoc basis, it may work well for you. If you want a book to read from the beginning to gain a better understanding of HTML etc. then my suggestion is that you try something else.

This is one of the best books i've ever read. It explains everything very well, with simple words, even if you don't understand (yet) very much of the subject. The topics covered are just what you need to know, and every single detail of html, xhtml and css are covered, nothing will miss you !
Nice book
