HTML Dog - worth the biscuits
on 14 March 2007
I ordered this book after reading the multitude of tutorials on Patrick Griffiths' website. I'm happy to say that it was a fantastic investment and has enabled me, in a simple, entertaining and easy way, to learn the intricacies of HTML and CSS.
Griffiths moves from detailed explanations of the difference between HTML and CSS, not only outlining examples, but also the practical reasons for using these web technologies together, then to more complex issues, such as layout. The book is full of web wizardry and expert tips all written in a casual and easy to read style.
I was so pleased with this book that I also bought the CSS Zen Garden book (also published by New Riders), which is another gem.
The Best Practice Guide is a worthy read for anybody wishing to learn standards based web development or simply wanting a decent reference. Highly recommended.
