Beginning Web Programming with HTML, XHTML, and CSS 2nd Edition
Offering a new approach to a familiar topic, this book teaches you how to create pages for the web as it exists today—and how it will be for the foreseeable future. The time for using only HTML coding to write a web page is gone. As the Web has advanced, so have the technologies you need to learn in order to create effective and attractive web pages. This beginning guide reviews HTML and also introduces you to using XHTML for the structure of a web page and cascading style sheets (CSS) for controlling how a document should appear on a web page.
Updated with modern examples, the book explores the evolution of web browsers and how they reflect the way web pages have developed. You'll learn how to take advantage of the latest features of browsers while still making sure that your pages still work in older, but popular, browsers. In addition, you'll discover how to write web pages for the many devices that are able to access the web. By incorporating usability and accessibility, you'll be able to write professional-looking and well-coded web pages that use the latest technologies.

That said, I would not recommend this book for absolute beginners or dabblers in web design. Simply put, it IS a textbook... the black and white illustrations are simply not sufficient to get a grasp of color, layout, and the like - you must do the end of chapter exercises. Further, the sequential instruction presented in the book hampers its use as a reference; it can answer "what does this tag do?" but not "how do I do that?"
Bottom line: if you have a little HTML experience and have already read a thin "newbie book" on the topic, then you are the ideal student for this excellent self-study course.
It has a lot of usefull information about HTML, CSS and general web design.
