I constantly refer to this book, but it has some unusual gaps on some pages. It's almost like its been put to press to early. Not a big problem, but baffling all the same.
This book is early doors for HTML5 and CSS3, but it tells you it's where in the life cycle each tag and selector is with W3C - something to bear in mind. It even lists support for API's such as Geolocation.
I still feel it's been rushed out early, to catch the market early.

These book covers HTML5/CSS3 to full extends. It is a good reference for it, and too bad some of the features only implemented in the latest generation of browsers. The new features for canvas and audio / video as well as the HTML5 semantic page structure are well defined. Unlike any other book I know, it has full coverage of HTML5 syntax: it explains properly when you don't have to use closing tags, quotes, etc. Author is using very minimalist and concise approach avoiding unnecessary verbosity making it extremely easy to use.
